The opening ceremony of the ITER exhibition in Suzhou.
Prior to the start of the ITER Council meeting in Suzhou, all delegates took part in the opening ceremony of the exhibition on ITER and nuclear fusion. The exhibition, organized by the Chinese Domestic Agency, explains the promise and challenges of fusion as an energy source, concentrating on the contribution of each ITER Member.

The most popular exhibit is the two-metre tall steel model of ITER.
A combination of audiovisual displays, models, ITER components and explanatory posters created a stimulating and didactic exhibition. The most popular exhibit was the two-metre tall steel model of ITER whose "plasma" glows ever brighter as the visitor raises the temperature in the vacuum vessel. 

Congratulations to He Kaihui (not shown) and Lili Lui from the Chinese Domestic Agency for their excellent work in organizing the exhibition. (Click to view larger version...)
