This week, Dr. Arthur Turrell, author of the recently published book “The Star Builders – Nuclear Fusion and the Race to Power the Planet” joins the podcast. Arthur has a PhD in plasma physics and writes about fusion energy in a way that makes sense for the average person.
Here are some of the questions Peter and Jackie asked Arthur: What are the advantages of fusion energy? How does it differ from nuclear fission?

Realistically, how long before nuclear fusion is a commercial reality?
