Drone survey on a perfect day

There are days in winter when the skies over Provence are perfectly transparent. Snowy peaks 200 kilometres away appear close enough to be touched and farms, country roads and villages are all revealed in sharp detail.

A drone flying over the ITER site on such days captures every single iron bar, scaffolding tower, or embedded plate in the Tokamak Complex; every insulator in the electrical switchyard; and every component carefully wrapped in green plastic in the site's storage areas.
