Jim Al-Khalili and a panel of energy experts including Dame Mary Archer join us to discuss the future of nuclear fusion and solar power following a screening of the absorbing documentary 'Let There Be Light'.
Clean, safe and unlimited power has been an obsession for scientists and inventors for centuries, and an underlying preoccupation for our society as a whole. Since the 1940s, when we first understood how the Sun creates energy, nuclear fusion has been energy’s Holy Grail. But could we now be on the brink of at last producing an ‘artificial Sun’ here on Earth? 'Let There Be Light' chronicles the work of the passionate scientists who are struggling to make the breakthrough that could alter the course of human history.
'Let There Be Light' + Panel Discussion: Is Nuclear Fusion the Way Forward? is part of an events season inspired by the Science Museum's blockbuster exhibition 'The Sun: Living With Our Star', open 6 October 2018 - 6 May 2019.
