        Construction Continues on Wendelstein 7-X Reactor | Earth's Resources

        Pieces protrude from the top exterior of the Wendelstein 7-X experimental fusion reactor at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics on October 29, 2013 in Greifswald, Germany. Scientists hope to heat a miniscule amount of hydrogen to 100 million degrees in order to melt the atomic cores into helium, thereby releasing large amounts of energy in a similar way as the sun. Due to be completed in 2014, the reactor could help scientists to get closer towards creating atomic fusion-based commercial power, which would be clean and virtually inexhaustible, as hydrogen comes from water.
