Scientists Are Getting Close To Controlling Fusion Power With Particle Beams

New research suggests scientists are getting close to using magnetic fields and powerful particle beams to control fusion reactions. Scientists say they’ve found a way to put sensors inside a fusion reactor and link them to a computer algorithm capable of directly controlling particle beams to regulate the reaction. Controlling the reaction with particle beams means physicists can prevent instabilities from degrading a magnetic field and ultimately shutting down a fusion reaction.
