Ruxandra Pilsiu

Can you imagine a village in 2030? The local "Fête de la Science" was the perfect place to do so this past weekend.

ITER was there to represent fusion!

"The Village of the Future" hosted 150 organizations and 90 displays with hands-on experiments were proposed to students and the general public. The small ITER laboratory was a popular stop—visitors had the chance to see how a magnetic field is generated, to discover the principles of vacuum, and even to produce plasma into a microwave.
