The Wendelstein 7-x fusion stellarator is an incredibly futuristic nuclear fusion reactor that could completely revolutionize the way economies make use of energy.

This nuclear fusion reactor has been in development for over 15 years. It is designed to be so efficient that it will be able to continuously hold super-hot plasma in its magnetic field for more than 30 minutes at a time. This would enable it to be the first nuclear reactor capable of truly continuous operation, something that is crucial for nuclear fusion power generation.

The Wendelstein 7-x fusion stellarator isn't merely a scientific achievement, but could revolutionize industry in Europe by changing the way energy is created and procured. If it goes on to function as promised, it will change the way people and businesses consume energy.
