World’s largest nuclear fusion project begins assembly in France

The world’s biggest nuclear fusion project entered its 5-year assembly phase in France Tuesday, with the first ultra-hot plasma expected to be generated in late 2025. The plasma will be confined within a structure called tokamak in order to control fusion reactions.The aim is to help demonstrate whether fusion can be commercially viable. The €20bn ITER project is a collaboration between 7 nations.
