Germany to Test Stellarator

Germany is on the verge of conducting a hydrogen fusion test of the Wendelstein 7-X Stellarator in Greifswald. The device is similar in nature to the Russian Tokamak design being constructed in France as ITER except it uses magnetic coils instead of an electric field to stabilize the plasma. One of the most significant challenges to nuclear fusion is developing the technology to handle the 180 million degree furnace. The Stellarator has already demonstrated the containment of a Helium plasma and it's looking like the Stellarator may leap ahead of ITER, which is already facing a six year delay.
