Event details

This event is part of our Ask the Experts series for families. 

Will fusion one day solve the energy crisis? How does it work? What’s it like to work with the largest tokamak (a giant magnetic doughnut!) to make plasmas that are hotter than the Sun itself?

What questions do YOU want our experts to answer?

Join postgraduate students from the Fusion CDT on an exploration of the power of the Sun and fusion energy.

About the experts

The Fusion CDT (the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Technology of Fusion Energy) is a collaboration between five of the UK’s top universities – Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and York. Our experts are postgraduate students with the Fusion CDT. They work at a range of fusion energy facilities across the UK, including the Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the MAST and JET tokamaks at Culham in Oxfordshire, advanced materials research facilities, the Orion laser and high-performance computing facilities. International links provide access to many other fusion devices around the world.

Over to you!
