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.
