Caption: An in-depth analysis by Luis Delgado-Aparicio (left) and David Gates (right), scientists from the US Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory zeroed in on tiny, bubble-like islands that appear in hot, charged gases -- or plasmas -- during experiments. They believe they may have found a solution to a critical barrier to fusion.
