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) 😛
Time for a visit methinks 😀
Err, fair play to the chap holding the checquered flag 🙂
It should come as no surprise that if you dedicate enough resource, enough time and good people to these problems, then you come up with good solutions.
