World's First Tokomak (Fusion Reactor)

GarryFre (886347) writes | more than 4 years ago


GarryFre (886347) writes "It has been said that Fusion is 50 years away for quite decades but now work has actually been started ...

Digging has begun in the south of France on the planned site for the world's first Fusion Reactor. A tokomak is a torus shaped magnetic confinement device which is necessary to withstand the temperatures associated with fusion that are so high, solid materials can't hold them. As such, the building represents the future core of ITER. (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor).

It will be interesting to see if it takes 50 years to build it."
