Live nuclear fusion demonstration planned

By The Tri-City HeraldApril 11, 2013 

A live demonstration of nuclear fusion is planned in Richland at a meeting of the Eastern Washington Section of the American Nuclear Society.

Carl Greninger, a program manager for Microsoft, will provide the demonstration. Known as "Mr. Fusion," he keeps a Farnsworth-Hirsch fusion reactor in his Federal Way garage, and area high school students help him work on it.

His demonstration will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Shilo Inn, Richland. There is no charge for the demonstration, but those who would like to attend the dinner meeting an hour earlier will be charged $22 and should make reservations by emailing by 4 p.m. today.
