Ep 1 - A Sun on Earth: Sarah Medley and Zoltan Kollo at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy



In this episode, we travel to the hottest place in the Solar System. No, not the Sun, but somewhere right on our doorstep. The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is home to JET, the world's largest fusion research facility which regularly generates temperatures of 100 million degrees centigrade. We speak to Zoltan Kollo and Sarah Medley, two members of the tritium engineering team who help prepare and place the hydrogen fuel at the heart of this Sun right here on Earth.
