Another Step Towards Breakeven Fusion

With Google’s assistance using machine optimization and data science, TAE achieved the major goals for their fusion platform, Norman, which brings us a step closer to the goal of breakeven fusion. They have completed a design for an even more powerful machine, which they hope will demonstrate the conditions necessary for breakeven fusion before the end of the decade. TAE has succeeded with two complete machine builds during our collaboration, and we are really excited to see the third.
