It is not often that you hear about all these countries collaborating together on a single project. But for the last ten years that is what they have been doing. And it is planned to continue for another 25 years – unless political events intervene to stop it (you know who I’m talking about).
So what brings all these countries together and what takes so long to achieve? Fusion power. Just in case you did not already know, the first ever such power station is being constructed in southern France. And if the political uncertainty over funding was not enough, no one is really sure if it will work! To find out more about the ITER project visit their website.
