Literal Sun Jars Shrinking Stars for Energy Production – Professor Michael Brown, Swarthmore College

engineering and tech, physical sciences

Science is the pursuit of knowledge – a search for an understanding. Sometimes that knowledge is simply collected and catalogued away for future reference (the laser was discovered in this manner) but, often, it is searched out vehemently to achieve something of importance. No other scientific endeavour has the potential to change the course of human history as much as Nuclear Fusion. And that’s precisely what Professor Michael Brown and his team at Swarthmore College are working on.
