UFOs, new tech, it all goes in here. Have you tried switching it off and back on ?

This giant magnet can lift aircraft carriers and could power

It may turn out to be one of the most consequential road trips of all time.

“ITER is a strange experiment, unlike anything in history, because of the combination of the technological challenges,”

“If you talk to an engineer about the Central Solenoid, and give dimensions, you’ll say things like: ‘It’s strong enough to lift an aircraft carrier, or it’s a magnet that is nearly 60-feet-high, yet it has to be positioned along the central axis of the machine with a precision in the range of millimetres.’ An engineer will say that’s insane, rightly.”

Previous efforts have built fusion reactions inside of tokamaks, but none have ever reached the “break-even point” where energy out is greater than energy in.

"The ITER project is the most complex scientific collaboration in history,"

How do they acquire neutrons??

That’s an interesting article, the goal of being able to use fusion as an energy source is an admirable one.
With zero nuclear waste, this will be a game changer of astronomical proportions.
Here’s hoping they succeed.
