This week we go nuclear and look into the science of nuclear power. We find out what& fusion is, how it works and whether it can provide us with a clean source of energy, as well as discover if it's possible to create fusion using lasers. We also hear how increasing demands for bushmeat are causing problems in rural Africa and learn about a vaccination programme that could eliminate Meningitis across the continent.
