Scientists around the world have crossed a threshold into a promising and challenging new era in the quest for fusion energy, says physicist George "Hutch" Neilson. The new phase began with the construction of ITER, a fusion facility of unprecedented size and power that the European Union, the United States and five other countries are building in France. With construction of ITER under way, many national fusion programs are embarking on their own projects to demonstrate the production of electricity from fusion energy. These nations are considering demonstration programs in generating electricity from fusion that would mark the final step before the construction of commercial fusion facilities by midcentury. Such programs have brought worldwide researchers together to discuss common challenges in annual workshops that the International Atomic Energy Agency began sponsoring last year.

* Results from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP)

The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has completed nine full years of mapping the cosmic microwave background in five frequency bands. With these data, the WMAP team has charted the power spectrum down to the cosmic variance limit to beyond l=500 and the first three acoustic peaks are accurately measured. From the temperature and polarization spectra, the parameters of the Lamda-CDM model the standard model for studying the Big Bang are deduced. Through including external data sets, extensions to the standard model are tested. These extensions include the properties of neutrinos, constraints on dark energy and other cosmic information. In this talk the most recent results from WMAP are presented.
