IAEA: headway to move dream closer to reality

For the world at large fusion energy remains a distant dream, but the large group of distinguished scientists gathering in Deajeon recently made important headway to move the dream closer to reality, says the IAEA Deputy Director-General. (Click to view larger version...)
For the world at large fusion energy remains a distant dream, but the large group of distinguished scientists gathering in Deajeon recently made important headway to move the dream closer to reality, says the IAEA Deputy Director-General.
This week the world fusion community is gathering in Daejeon, Korea for the 23rd biennial Fusion Energy Conference organized by the IAEA and hosted by Korea's National Fusion Research Institute.

As the search for greener forms of electricity production intensifies, the pursuit of peaceful nuclear fusion has received growing attention in the scientific community. This year's Fusion Energy Conference brings together the largest group of physicists working in the field to date.

"For the world at large, fusion energy remains a distant dream but the large group of distinguished scientists gathering in Deajeon recently made important headway to move the dream closer to reality," said Werner Burkart, Head of the IAEA's Nuclear Sciences and Applications Department, who opened the Conference on behalf of IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano.
