Nuclear Fusion Breakthrough Matt Ferrell
In Matt Ferrell’s latest Undecided episode he explores why a recent nuclear fusion breakthrough actually matters, as until know, these experiments required more energy than they produced. The net power output is measured using a metric denoted as Q, and in this breakthrough, researchers claim they can use high-temperature superconductors to build a fully-functional fusion powerplant generating a Q above 10. Read more for a video and additional information.



Officially called SPARC, the final proof of concept has just been completed and the next step would be to actually build the reactor. Th concept managed to achieve a magnetic field strength of 20 teslas, or the highest magnetic flux density produced yet with high-temperature superconductors at this scale. For comparison, the highest net power output achieved currently has been a Q of 0.7.
