A narrator describes man's historic efforts to harness energy. FUSION ON EARTH. In a spectacular demonstration of controlled nuclear fusion, a magnetic field squeezes a plasma of deuterium gas for a few millionths of a second at a temperature of 50 million degrees Fahrenheit. There is a vivid flash and a loud report as atoms fuse and free energy is released.
