Nuclear Fusion

Thanks to CIGPE for a very interesting presentation on the Joint European Torus nuclear fusion experiment http://www.efda.org/2013/05/jet-the-joint-european-torus/

Some very interesting issues around the economies of maintenance at large scale… 20k millisieverts per hour and an 800c reactor vessel after 1 month of cooling anyone? Not to mention 16kg of tritium injection per day (current total global sales = 0.2kg per year)  :-P

Time for a visit methinks :-D
