Electricity generated by terrestrial Fusion is the holy grail of energy research. Generating power by the fusion of light elements, akin to the processes which keep stars burning, has the potential to revolutionise the world's energy supplies.  It is carbon neutral and the fuel is widely accessible and virtually inexhaustible. We'll take a look at the successes and challenges for scientists around the world trying to harness this energy and look at what it takes to bottle a star.
