1,300 flock to ITER on Open Doors Day

 (Click to view larger version...)
For its second Open Doors Day, last Saturday 6 October, ITER had something quite exceptional in store for its visitors. For the very first and the very last time (a second concrete basemat will soon be poured), the Tokamak Pit was open to the public.

Shuttle buses rotated between the parking lot of the new ITER Headquarters building and the ITER platform where the public was invited to descend into the 17-metre deep Tokamak Pit, take a stroll amongst the 493 seismic plinths, and have a closer look at the truly gigantic foundations of what will become the heart of the ITER machine.

Almost 1,300 visitors who had registered for this exceptional visit weeks ago, from near and from far, were equally impressed by the sheer dimensions of this unique and spectacular project.
