The JT-60SA : World’s Largest Nuclear Fusion Reactor
The world’s largest nuclear fusion reactor, the JT-60SA in Japan’s Ibaraki Prefecture, has commenced operations, marking a significant step toward achieving clean energy.
- The joint project between the European Union and Japan aims to explore the viability of nuclear fusion as a sustainable and virtually limitless power source.
- The achievement follows recent breakthroughs in nuclear fusion, including a net energy gain by scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California.
- Another, even larger fusion reactor is currently under construction in France and is set to begin operations in 2025.
