This week on the GeekWire radio show, we explore the world of fusion energy, and its potential implications for the world at large.
Our guest in the studio is University of Washington researcher Derek Sutherland, a 24-year-old doctoral student and Forbes ’30 Under 30′ honoree who specializes in fusion energy — part of a team of researchers pursuing a safer, more efficient method of generating power. We learn about the Dynomak fusion energy project, which Sutherland is working on with Dr. Tom Jarboe, and we hear about what’s next in the field.
Also, GeekWire’s John Cook reports from Tampa, Fla. — talking about the biggest lesson learned from his week covering the startup scene there — and we discuss the news about a five-story startup facility in the works in Seattle.
