Why Build a Sun on Earth?

Prize-winning animated documentary I made in collaboration with fusion scientists at York Plasma institute. Touring UK schools in a portable 'Sun Dome', this film offers an informative and entertaining spectacle that demonstrates the benefits of nuclear fusion research and empowers its young audiences to be part of the solution for our energy future.
