Recent reports from scientists pursuing a new kind of nuclear fusion technology are encouraging, but we are still some distance away from the "holy grail of clean energy."

The technology developed by Heinrich Hora and his colleagues at the University of NSW uses powerful lasers to fuse together hydrogen and , releasing high-energy particles that can be used to generate electricity. As with other kinds of nuclear technology, however, the difficulty is in building a machine that can reliably initiate the reaction and harness the energy it produces.
