Tour the Albany Street Nuclear Energy Corridor
MIT engineers play the long game because sometimes it can take decades to come up with a solution that works. Nuclear science and engineering is one of our longest bets, but the possible payoffs could save the planet. Now, after 50 years of effort, the prospect of sustainable fusion power looks like it could be achieved in our lifetimes. In this video, graduate students Leigh Ann Kesler and Brandon Sorbom, both of whom do fusion research, guide the viewer on a behind-the-scenes walkthrough of the remarkable concentration of nuclear energy research equipment, facilities, and expertise lining the Albany Street corridor.
