Five Nuclear Futures academics and students presented their research at TMS 2022. TMS aims to bring a multi-disciplinary mix of engineers, scientists, business leaders, and other professionals in the minerals, metals, and materials fields. This year, the conference was held in person in Anaheim, California.
Ser Cymru Reader, Dr Simon Middleburgh was invited to share his opinions and insights on this news on the BBC Radio Wales Drivetime Show - Radio Wales Drive. Simon discussed how this breakthrough would be a "major springboard" to future experiments and a confirmation that all of the science and engineering work that has gone into making fusion a possiblity over the past few decades is indeed viable and that exciting times are ahead of us in the world of nuclear science.
