General Atomics nuclear fusion program (DIII-D) gets DOE funding extension

San Diego-based General Atomics is working to find an abundant source of energy without pollution or nuclear waste. The goal of this nuclear fusion program known as DIII-D is to harness a virtually inexhaustible source of energy that, theoretically, could supply electricity for power plants all over the world while emitting no carbon pollution or long-lived nuclear waste. And to help with that effort, the Department of Energy has given researchers a 5-year funding extension. Wayne Solomon, Deputy Director of DIII-D at General Atomics, was in studio to talk about it.
