World’s Biggest Nuclear-Fusion Project Faces Delays as Component Cracks.


Cracks in a key silver-lined component are creating new delays and cost
overruns in the $23 billion project to prove whether nuclear fusion can
generate limitless clean energy.

The International Thermonuclear
Experimental Reactor, or ITER, under construction in southern France is
being funded by the European Union and countries including China, India,
Japan, Russia and South Korea. The world’s biggest experiment aims to show
that mimicking the power that makes stars shine can produce clean energy
that could help slow global warming on Earth.

But new ITER Director-General
Pietro Barabaschi warned members this week the project faces problems that
are potentially “extensive,” along with new requirements for time and
money that “will not be insignificant.”
