On 15 February, "Isabelle" and "Jeanne," the last of the ten toroidal field coils manufactured in France for the EU-Japan tokamak JT-60SA, were swallowed into the cargo bay of a giant Antonov 124 bound for Nagoya, Japan. They arrived the next day at their destination (see a full report here).

The JT-60 SA tokamak, which is being assembled in Naka, is part of the Broader Approach agreement signed between Japan and Euratom, and implemented by QST Japan and the European Domestic Agency for ITER.
