  1. fusion reactor

    A fusion reactor is a type of device used to generate energy through nuclear fusion, a process where atomic nuclei are combined to form heavier nuclei, resulting in the release of large amounts of energy. This technology is intended to offer a reliable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly method of generating power, emulating the same process that powers the sun and other stars. It is different from existing nuclear reactors that use fission, or the splitting of atoms, to generate energy. Currently, fusion reactors are primarily in the research and development phase, with ongoing endeavors to make this a practical and commercial source of energy.
