ITER Sets the Stage for the Age of Fusion - For more than 60 years, scientists have been looking for a way to safely produce a commercial energy source using thermonuclear fusion. Since fusion requires temperatures and pressures similar to those found in the core of the sun, developing such technology has obviously been extraordinarily difficult. But an international effort undertaken by seven countries, known as ITER, looks poised to make fusion power a reality.
