Germany is on the cusp of making a major scientific breakthrough in the field of nuclear fusion. Its Wendelstein 7-X (W7X) experimental fusion reactor is just about to be shoot up with hydrogen, where researchers will try to turn it into a sustained, super-hot plasma. If successful, it will become world’s first, and it is currently being streamedlive from 1:45 p.m. GMT (8:45 a.m. EST). Ignition of the reactor is projected at 2:35 p.m. GMT (9:35 a.m. EST).

The fusion reactor, which specifically aims to copy the circumstances deep inside our Sun, will be turned on by German chancellor Angela Merkel – who herself has a doctorate in physics. However workable nuclear fusion is likely to be numerous decades away, this experiment signifies a key stepping stone in the direction of this goal. Organized nuclear fusion – a clean, near-perpetual source of energy – would definitely revolutionize the world. You can watch it live here.
