A giant leap forward in the quest for clean, limitless energy has been announced by South Korean scientists.

They've achieved a new world record for sustaining a key element of nuclear fusion – temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees Celsius – paving the way for a future powered by the stars themselves.

The Challenge and Dream of Nuclear Fusion

Nuclear fusion replicates the process that powers the sun and stars, fusing atomic nuclei to release enormous amounts of energy.

Often dubbed the "holy grail" of clean energy solutions, fusion offers the potential for a virtually limitless energy source without the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

However, harnessing this process on Earth has proven incredibly challenging.
