Multi-Billion Dollar Start Of A Nuclear Fusion Boom

Alex Kimani
Fission nuclear power is very well developed, safe, environmentaly friendly. Fusion nuclear power requires the use of tremendous amounts of energy to win even more energy. Fusion power is a special deal that may have only a limited application worldwide if it becomes a reality.

Scientists have been working on nuclear fusion technology since the 1950s and have always been optimistic that the final breakthrough is not far away. Yet, milestones have fallen time and again and now the running joke is that a practical nuclear fusion power plant could still be decades away. The latest wave of infusion of cash into fusion startups has already exceeded the $1.9 billion in total that was previously announced.
