A March 18 article in MIT News by Peter Dunn of the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center describes the recent extensive planning effort of the U.S. fusion research community and the Department of Energy's Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee's initiation of preparation of a strategic plan to accomplish the goal of achieving fusion energy.

In the article, Dunn writes: "The growing sense of urgency around development of fusion technology for energy production in the United States got another boost this week with the release of a community consensus report by a diverse group of researchers from academia, government labs, and industry. High among its recommendations is development of a pilot fusion power plant, an ambitious goal that would be an important step toward an American fusion energy industry."
