Impressive advances have been reported in controlled fusion experiments during the past four years. Both open and closed confinement systems have performed up to expectations, rekindling the old optimism that has lain nearly dormant for 15 years. As a result, breakeven experiments are being proposed, designed and built in several laboratories.
