Fusion is a form of nuclear energy which has impressive advantages from the point of view of fuel reserves, environmental impact and safety. If successful, fusion energy would ensure a safe, resource conserving, environmentally friendly power supply for future generations. In a world wide cooperation to achieve this goal, seven parties including Europe, Japan, Russia, USA, China, South-Korea and India are building ITER, a 4.6 billion Euro international experiment which, after 10 years of construction, will put fusion research on the way to demonstrating an energy-yielding plasma on earth.
