Could TRITIUM hold the key to unlimited energy? Government to test radioactive material in radical fusion reactor
The Z Machine at Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico is one of the most powerful radiation sources in the world – and soon, it will emit 500 times more energy than it’s capable of now. Researchers have revealed they are introducing tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen, to the Z Machine’s fuel. With a 50/50 mix of tritium and deuterium, they say the machine will be able to fire 80 times more neutrons as the fuel fuses with its massive electromagnetic field. Read more.
