Fusion at the crossroads
To move fusion energy closer to reality, we will need to deepen scientific understanding, build an experiment to study plasma burning, and develop materials and technologies for converting fusion energy to electric power and for breeding tritium fuel.

Shirley Jackson puts a new face on physics

Now she is president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and has already started reshaping its image.
