A piece of the sun : the quest for fusion energy

Our rapidly industrialising world has an insatiable hunger for energy, and conventional sources are struggling to meet demand. Oil is running out, coal is damaging our climate, many nations are abandoning nuclear, yet solar, wind and water will never be a complete replacement. The solution, says Daniel Clery in this deeply researched and revelatory book, is to be found in the original energy source: the Sun itself. There, at its centre, the fusion of 630 million tonnes of hydrogen every second generates an unfathomable amount of energy. By replicating even a tiny piece of the Sun's power on Ea.

  • "Citing a lack of progress in alternate fuel technologies, argues that large-scale nuclear fusion is scientifically plausible and explains that human error has been responsible for the accidents that have limited the technology's acceptance."
