Energy from Nuclear Fusion?

It is generally believed that nuclear fusion occurs in the central region of the Sun, and is the primary source of the Sun’s light and heat radiation.

What progress has been made so far in thermonuclear research; and what are the prospects of building a nuclear fusion reactor that would provide a plentiful and controllable supply of energy for the future?

Dr David Falla is one of the founding members of La Societe Guernesiaise Astronomy Section. Dr Falla obtained his PhD at the University of Bristol and then held research posts at Manchester and London (Queen Mary College). He has now retired from a lectureship at the University of Wales (Aberystwyth), where he is currently an honorary lecturer in the Institute of Mathematical and Physical Sciences.
