For decades, scientists have pursued the challenge of replicating nuclear fusion to meet the planet’s growing energy needs. However, generating a stable and self-sustaining fusion reaction has thus far eluded the brightest minds in the field. Still, the White House has indicated an interest in the continued pursuit of fusion technology and is focused on accelerating the development of fusion energy.

The Department of Energy has recently awarded MSU’s Mathematical Multifaceted Integrated Capability Center, or MMICC, with $15 million in funding to develop the next generation of computer modeling to better model the physics needed to control and sustain a fusion reaction. Joined by experts from labs around the country, MSU is leading the way in mathematical and computational technology breakthroughs.
