10/1/2015 Radio Show + Interview with Princeton Plasma Physicist Brian Kraus

Music and interview with Princeton plasma physics doctoral student Brian Kraus. We talked about what is a plasma, the difference between fusion and fission, why fusion energy is so much cleaner than fission (what’s done in nuclear reactors), but also so much harder. We talked about the fusion reactor being built in France – ITER – as well as other things you can do with plasmas, like propelling satellites and space ships!

New Yorker article on the fusion reactor, ITER. (In the show I mention an Atlantic article, however I was unable to find it. This one also looks good!)
