My village in 2030

Can you imagine a village in 2030? The local "Fête de la Science" was the perfect place to do so this past weekend. Berre l'Etang, a village about 50 km from ITER, practiced the exercise by proposing to travel in time and discover what new technologies will be part of our lives in the future. ITER was there to represent fusion!

What happens to marshmallows when a vacuum is created under the dome? These children got a chance to find out.
"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.
