⚛️ Nuclear partnerships

The nuclear science community saw one of its greatest breakthroughs this week when a nuclear fusion reaction with a net energy gain was accomplished. This is a great step towards a clean energy source and also a great metaphor for what great partnerships look like. A partner ecosystem might be hard to set up, but if done right, the outcome will exceed the cost.

A clean revenue source, that’s the dream.
