Shall we go skiing?



Although seen at a distance of some 85 kilometres, the Seuil de Blieux gap—tucked between the Mont Chiran (alt 1,905 m) and Mourre de Chanier (alt 1,930 m)—seems to tower above the ITER site like an invitation for a hike or a skiing trip.

Taken from the road leading to Bridge of Mirabeau with a powerful telephoto lens, the view centres on the 60-metre-high ITER Assembly Hall, whose south-facing facade is now half-covered with mirror cladding. The other buildings are all part of CEA Cadarache, the largest research centre of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission.
