South Korea Goes Nuclear (No Not That one)

South Korea's nuclear fusion program hit 100 million degrees Celcius for about 30 seconds before being shut down over hardware limitations. Unlike existing nuclear-fission power, the non-radioactive fusion energy production process simulates the sun's energy production.
