ITER Now

Launch of a new video series

Will Beaton

A new video series will take you closer to the people and the progress of ITER through regular installments.

 (Click to view larger version...)
After decades of design, manufacturing, and preparation, 2020 marks the start of the assembly of the ITER machine. No longer is fusion energy some far-off dream in the minds of physicists; ITER brings fusion closer to reality now.

Every week, we'll explore stories of the dynamic progress of the ITER Project and the passionate people building it. Each episode will feature a different group working on a unique aspect of the ITER endeavor—not just the construction and the science, but the hard-working people who are bringing ITER to life.

Follow along on the ITER YouTube channel and all our social media accounts—Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Then go to SoundCloud to listen to the accompanying ITER NOW podcast, which contains the extended, un-cut interviews that do not appear in the weekly video.
