Tuesday 9th October 2007: "Fusion within our grasp" - - history of and prospects for fusion power

With fuel reserves dwindling and climate change, every non-carbon energy source must be explored. Culham has been at the forefront of one such area - Fusion.

For many years it has been a world leading centre and the European JET experiment at Culham has proved that fusion works. Dr. Carpenter, Head of Public Affairs for the UKAEA, will not only explain fusion and the prospects for electricity generation, but explore the politics which has taken place behind the scenes.

Come along and join us at 7pm in Blackwells Main Bookshop, Broad Street, Oxford.
No ticket, no booking, no scientific background required.
