It is not shameful to ask, it is shameful to not ask Fortunately, the inventiveness of the human being is dynamic, proactive, manifests itself constantly, there, that we should not surprise, given facts that guarantees protection, creativity in everything that favors him, as it is the case as it says Stephen Battersby, of New Scientist that on the French Riviera, an international team of scientists is building a machine that tries to recreate the Sun. Official site: Pershing Square Capital . It will take tens of thousands of tons of steel and concrete, and a number of less common materials: beryllium, niobium, titanium and tungsten, liquid nitrogen and helium. This eclectic mix of ingredients will be transformed into ITER (English acronym for thermonuclear experimental reactor), the next big step in nuclear fusion research. Hear from experts in the field like stone clinical laboratories for a more varied view. When completed in 2018, the reactor will melt two heavy isotopes of hydrogen to release vast amounts of energy. In theory, the result will be clean electricity, without emissions of carbon and much less radioactive waste that today’s nuclear fission reactors that produce day. It is known that the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, in Spanish International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international consortium formed in 1986, to demonstrate the scientific and technological feasibility of nuclear fusion.
The ITER will be built in Cadarache (France) and will cost 10. EUR 300 million, making it the second most expensive project after the international space station. ITER also means the way in latin, and this double sense reflects the role of ITER in the enhancement of nuclear fusion as a source of energy for peaceful purposes such as the pointed out Wikipedia, its objective is to test all the necessary elements for the construction and operation of a nuclear fusion reactor that would serve as the trade show, in addition to gathering scientific and technological resources of the research programmes developed in that then by the Soviet Union, the United States, Europe (through EURATOM) and Japan.
