Jean Jacquinot, formerly Director of JET and Director of DRFC Cadarache, currently Scientific Adviser to the French High Commissioner for Atomic Energy was at Cadarache on 28 November to give a seminar on the evolution of ITER, a subject covered in his book entitled "ITER — le chemin des étoiles?".

Co-authored by Robert Arnoux, a prominent local journalist, the book is aimed at a non-scientific audience and is already selling well. On this occasion Dr Jacquinot did not go into the science of ITER, but instead gave a fascinating account of how the experiment came to be built after many years of planning, discussions and geo-political wrangling. After the talk, he signed copies of the book for members of the large audience.
