On 10 December, Germany's new Wendelstein 7-X stellarator was fired up for the first time, rounding off a construction effort that took nearly 2 decades and cost €1 billion. Initially and for the first couple of months, the reactor will be filled with helium—an unreactive gas—so that operators can make sure that they can control and heat the gas effectively. At the end of January, experiments will begin with hydrogen in an effort to show that fusing hydrogen isotopes can be a viable source of clean and virtually limitless energy.

Let's hope the scientists and engineers can work out the bugs and design problems because the safety factor with this reactor seems to be excellent.

Wow.

Scary temperatures.

Hope they know what they are doing.

Afraid I slept through too many physics classes to even grasp the ground concept.

I was paying attention 28% of the time.

That was when we got to perform cool experiments on our own.

Foam and fire!

i dont remember anything about it.
except ions.
i liked the ions thing.

the ones that are out before a storm.
what are those ones.. the ones you can smell.. positive or negative..

i can never remember

Watch this video of this very impressive teenager who wants to create clean and safe nuclear energy.

Uh huh... "Germany" and "technological innovation that involves a hydrogen filled container".

Well, on the surface it seems a great deal more safe with the use of supercomputers monitoring those lasered welds.
