An (almost) royal visit

This Friday, a delegation of engineers from the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and the Royal Institute of Technology came to Cadarache to take a close look at the first concrete footprints of the ITER project. After an introduction to the project given by Director-General Osamu Motojima, the visitors were invited to an extensive site tour, which finally led them right into the heart of the Tokamak Pit.

After 45 minutes touring in the midday heat, the honourable academy members were glad to be back on the air conditioned bus … exhausted, but thrilled by this "fascinating project."
