  7. A Little Drop Will Do It: Tiny Grains of Lithium Can Dramatically...Read the original story

    Wednesday May 20 | Newswise

    Scientists from General Atomics and the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have discovered a phenomenon that helps them to improve fusion plasmas, a finding that may quicken the development of fusion energy. Together with a team of researchers from across the United States, the scientists found that when they injected tiny grains of lithium into a plasma undergoing a particular kind of turbulence then, under the right conditions, the temperature and pressure rose dramatically.
