Column by Dr. Dr. Eugenio Vogel, Senior Associate Researcher at CEDENNA and Full Professor at the Universidad de La Frontera, in which he highlights that “what could become the first nuclear fusion reactor is being quietly built in the south of France , called ITER by its acronym in English (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). Unlike nuclear fission reactors, ITER uses the remaining energy that results from joining two heavy hydrogen atoms (or deuterium) to form an inert Helium atom, releasing energy. In other words, there are no dangerous or toxic by-products.” He adds that "if ITER is successful, one might think that humanity's energy problems would be solved for an unimaginably long time and by the same energy source that the Sun works with: nuclear fusion."
