What is nuclear fusion, and could it really help combat the climate emergency?
In this talk, Arthur Turrell will take us on a thrilling tour of one of the greatest technological and scientific challenges humanity has ever undertaken: reproducing the power source of the stars on our own planet. Telling the remarkable stories of the scientists and entrepreneurs who have dedicated their lives to a seemingly impossible dream, Arthur will offer an unmissable insight into how efforts to produce clean energy from nuclear fusion are inching closer to reality.
Copies of Arthur's latest book 'The Star Builders: Nuclear Fusion and the Race to Power the Planet' are available from Amazon and all good bookshops.
Arthur Turrell has a PhD in plasma physics and nuclear fusion from Imperial College London, where he remains a Visiting Scientist. He is also a visitor to the Bank of England, and the Data Analytics for Finance and Macro Research Centre at King's College London. His research combines methods from data science, economics, and physics, and today he works as an economist and data scientist.
As well as his research, Arthur is passionate about making science and economics more accessible - mostly because scientists shouldn't be allowed to have all the fun.
