TEDxKC: From Fission To Fusion

MichelLaberge.jpg

The idea of nuclear power is nothing new, but the traditional method of producing it by fission is being challenged by the safer and greener process of fusion.

On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with the founder of an energy company making a fusion prototype to supply commercially-viable and competitive power generation.

Guest:

  • Dr. Michel Laberge, founder and chief scientist at General Fusion
