Since mankind knows about the energy inside the atom and build the first fission reactor scientist worldwide try to tame the process that produces the suns energy. Nuclear fusion. The technology sounds too good to be true. It's supposed to be cleaner than the burning of fossile fuels, less limited than renewable energy and safer than fission. Fusing one gram of hydrogen releases as much energy as burning 10.8 million gram of coal. To achieve this goal the EU, Russia, USA, China and others are building "ITER". The first reactor supposed to produce 10 times more energy than was needed to run it.
