Farewell party for Mike Wykes. (Click to view larger version...)
Farewell party for Mike Wykes.
"He is a nice guy - and he can still do the math." Last week the ITER Vacuum Group and many more colleagues gathered in the "Centre Court" and raised their glasses to Mike Wykes who has finally decided to look at the sunny side of retirement. Mike, an experienced fusion scientist, had already officially retired from fusion work some years ago when he was asked to help build up the ITER Vacuum Group — which he did. As the deed is done, Mike sets off home for the second time in his life. But seriously, what would a dedicated fusion gypsy do at home for more than a month?
