A breakthrough in fusion

For decades, researchers around the world and at Princeton have been working to harness fusion — the clean and potentially unlimited energy source that powers our sun and stars — here on Earth. Now, scientists have made history by achieving fusion ignition. The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory celebrates Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for this incredible step forward in the fusion community.
