ITER and the great adventure of fusion

ITER Communication has produced a new six-minute video that retraces "The great adventure of fusion," beginning in the 1920s when astrophysicists understood the physical reaction that powers the Sun and stars for the first time.

The second part of the video focuses on the progress of ITER construction in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance, in southern France, and on the fabrication of ITER Tokamak components by the industry of the ITER Members.

The video comes with an English voice-over. It will soon be available in French and in the languages of all the ITER Members.
