    TAE's device, C2W "Norman", carries out fusion at tens of millions of degrees C

    By Paul Rincon
    Science editor, BBC News website

    A US company is speeding up the path to practical fusion energy by using Google's vast computing power.

    By applying software that can improve on its own, TAE Technologies has cut down tasks that once took two months to just a few hours.

    Google has lent the firm its expertise in "machine learning" in order to help accelerate the timeline for fusion.

    Nuclear fusion promises a plentiful supply of low-carbon energy, using the same process that powers the Sun.

    Existing nuclear power is based on fission, where a heavy chemical element is split to provide a lighter one. Nuclear fusion works by combining two light elements to make a heavier one. By using a hot, electrically-charged gas called plasma, fast-moving particles can fuse, releasing energy.

    Fusion becomes economically-viable when it generates more energy than the amount being put in. But no one has yet reached this point, despite an eight-decade effort to "build a star on Earth". The challenges are immense, but some in the fusion community hope that new thinking and disruptive technologies could help shatter this paradigm.
