Sabine Hossenfelder on the race for practical fusion power

From YouTube:

In this video we survey the biggest and most interesting nuclear fusion startups which want to make nuclear fusion commercially relevant. What are the different approaches, how far along are they, and what are the pros and cons. This video has been in the works for months and it's the longest video we've made so far, almost half an hour, so I hope you have a comfortable seat!

Many thanks to Jordi Busqué for helping with this video
