Kate Lancaster

Nuclear fusion may one day play a key role in solving our energy problems. It’s been a long time coming because of some very tough scientific problems. Most have been solved and an experimental reactor is being set up. Kate, who at 14 wondered whether to be a dancer or a scientist, is in the thick of these developments.
