CPMI’s Matthew Parsons Letter to the Editor Featured in Science Magazine

April 21, 2017

CPMI’s own Matthew Parsons was featured in Science Magazine this week! Young scientists from a variety of fields were asked to address the issue of what changes are required to preserve Earth’s ecosystems and biodiversity, specifically in their field. Matt’s response was featured: “To protect our environment, we must replace fossil fuels with cleaner energy options. One possibility, nuclear fusion, produces energy when hot hydrogen nuclei collide to form helium. At such high temperatures, hydrogen becomes
a new state of matter: plasma. Plasma physicists and engineers around the world are working together to learn how to con- trol plasmas, so that the energy produced in fusion reactions can be used to create electricity.” The entire article can be found here! Congratulations, Matt!
