Scientists in Japan have achieved "first plasma" in the JT-60SA experimental reactor, a significant milestone in fusion power research. The reactor is part of a collaboration between Japan and the EU to develop fusion technology, and it will guide the development of the much larger ITER reactor being built in France. While private fusion power startups have emerged with more aggressive schedules, government-run projects still lead the way. The goal of fusion power is to generate more power than it uses, and achieving this would be a crucial milestone in the road to commercial fusion power plants.
