Nuclear fusion is tricky because it is essentially an attempt to replicate the processes of the Sun on Earth. For years scientists have been trying to harness this energy but with not much success.

RecentĀ reports have emerged stating that nuclear fusion may be a question of when not if. This is important as its alternative nuclear fission has proven to be hugely expensive, generating large amounts of radioactive waste, and raising fundamental concerns about safety.

That's why we're excited to stumble on this new study by researchers from Princeton University who claimed they had found new methods for making nuclear fusion safer and, therefore, possible.
