In this issue we will tell you what difficulties scientists have faced, what developments are already available today, and should we count on the development of thermonuclear fusion in this century?

Each second, the sun emits as much energy as would be enough for humanity for a million years. Such a colossal volume is released from the core of our star due to thermonuclear fusion. At the beginning of the twentieth century, a person decided to take possession of this source of energy. Create your own sun on Earth. But how much is this even possible?
