How Does Everyday Technology Give Nuclear Fusion the Engineering Edge?
RS Components Explores Fusion Energy Research in Episode 3 of "The Engineering Edge" Podcast
FORT WORTH, TEXAS. January 7 2020-The
world is full of interesting applications of everyday technology – and RS
sending Dr. Lucy Rogers, Ph.D. on a mission to find the engineering edge in
sometimes little-known, but important, places.
In episode 3 of the Engineering Edge podcast, Lucy makes a visit to the National Research
Laboratory for Fusion Energy in the UK to explore the Joint European Torus
(JET), the world’s largest operational magnetically confined plasma physics
experiment.Scientists at JET are researching
how the process that powers the sun could be turned into carbon-free, safe and
abundant electricity for a cleaner planet. While that may sound complicated, there
is a surprising amount of familiar everyday technology that is critical to
experimentation and data analysis JET. Listen along as Lucy talks with members
of the JET team about how they achieve the “Engineering Edge.”
our extensive inventory of electronic components to online STEM curriculum resources for teachers, our mission is to be a catalyst
for engineering design and innovation in North America and around the world,”
said Fal Dieso, head of marketing for RS Components Americas. “Giving
designers, engineers, makers and students an engineering edge is something
we’re very passionate about – which is exactly why we’re excited to have Dr.
