Things get extremely hot inside a nuclear fusion reactor, what with hydrogen plasma that can heat up to tens of millions of degrees Celsius. These high temperatures are necessary because the fusion reaction that needs to take place can only happen under such extreme conditions. Only then can vast amounts of clean energy be released.
One problem that must be dealt with during this process is keeping the plasma floating in the center of the ‘tokamak.’ Which is the most common fusion reactor that is…
