Jeff Bezos is betting everything on nuclear fusion: his project to produce clean energy is ready

After the announcement of an upcoming space trip, Jeff Bezos throws himself into the field of nuclear energy. In reality, he is not new to the industry: the king of Amazon has been operating in the environment for about 10 years, since he invested capital in General Fusion. The Canadian company has proposed a project to obtain clean and risk-free energy from the nuclear fusion process. Everything will come to life thanks to a mini demonstration plant (70% of the size of a commercial one) in Culham, in English Oxfordshire. A project from 400 million of dollars which is expected to be operational from 2025. And Bezos is expected to participate as a lender of the company. If this were to go through, the energy would be obtained not from the splitting of atoms but from the fusion of particles. A low-risk approach that involves minimal generation of radioactive waste. However, this would involve the generation of heat that reaches higher temperatures than those of the solar surface.
