ITER in a spaceship

Close to 30,000 people attended the Yggdrasil festival this past weekend at EUREXPO in Lyon, France's third largest city. Named after a central element of Nordic mythology, the sacred tree Yggdrasil, the event brought together science fiction, heroic fantasy, and cosplay enthusiasts in a fantasy world bathed in exuberance and imagination.

One of the attractions of the ITER stand was the holobox, where visitors could learn about the principal tokamak components and systems.
ITER was present in the Demain, mais en mieux ("Tomorrow, only better") spaceship, along with 20 other European labs, research institutes and leading companies and institutions (Airbus, Dassault, Électricité de France, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission CEA, the French National Research Agency, the National Centre for Space Studies and others)—all dedicated to shaping a better future for the generations to come.

At the ITER booth, visitors could play with the futuristic ''holobox'' and discover the different tokamak components, take a virtual tour of the ITER platform by way of virtual reality headsets, or ask about the nature and function of an actual prototype of the divertor inner vertical target.
