Now, thanks to scientists working on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak fusion reactor at MIT, we are a step closer to harnessing it, Futurism reports. Stable nuclear fusion involves a plasma's particle density, its confinement time, and its temperature, reaching a particular value (or "triply product") that keeps the reaction going.
