This Canadian Fusion Reactor Could be Built by 2025


General Fusion is a Canadian company developing a reactor that uses steam pistons to achieve fusion! And they’re planning on building a fusion demonstration plant by 2025! In this video I explore how fusion works in the sun, how fusion reactors will work on Earth, and how simple steam pistons could be the answer to the technical challenges facing commercial fusion electricity generation.
