MIT starts Commercializing Hot Fusion

“Researchers at MIT have designed a way to use high-temperature superconductors to produce powerful magnetic fields that provide superior confinement of the hot plasma — enabling a net energy fusion device at much smaller scale than did previous experiments,” MIT Vice President for Research Maria T. Zuber wrote in The Boston Globe.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems was founded by former MIT students and researchers that want to commercialize hot fusion. Commonwealth has also received some money from unidentified “U.S. Investment Funds,” Zuber claimed.

Revolutionary Fusion Reactor Works as Planned

The ultimate is goal is to replicate the temperatures and pressures found in stars like the sun to create vast amounts of energy in the form of heat. Theoretically such hot fusion would be able to generate tremendous amounts of electricity without radiation or pollution and use nothing but seawater as fuel.
