  • ITER: The Giant Fusion Reactor

ITER: The Giant Fusion Reactor is the first book to present an insider's view on the ITER fusion reactor project in southern France. Aimed at bringing the “energy of the stars” to earth, ITER - funded by the major economic powers China, the EU, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the US - sees its budget grow as delays continue to accumulate.

The writer, Michel Claessens, head of communication and external relations of the ITER project from 2011 to 2016, offers readers a unique behind-the-scenes look at this controversial project and introduces them to a world of superlatives: with the largest magnets in the world, the biggest cryogenic plant and tremendous computing power, ITER is one of the most fascinating, international, scientific and technological endeavours of our time.
