Kazakhstan Offers To Join International Fusion Power Project

"Kazakhstan has proposed receiving full membership in the organization comprising countries involved in the ITER project," said Sergei Mazurenko, the head of Russia's Federal Agency for Science and Innovation.

According to the ITER consortium, fusion power offers the potential for "environmentally benign, widely applicable and essentially inexhaustible" electricity, which the participants claim will be needed as the demand for alternative energy sources increases in the future.
