The world will mark a historic moment with the start of machine assembly of the world's largest experimental fusion reactor at ITER facility in southern France in the virtual presence of host nation President Emmanuel Macron and government leaders from the seven ITER members, including India.
Officials say the launch of the ITER assembly phase is made possible by the arrival of components from all over the world in recent months. It demonstrates the willingness of 30,000 people of the 35 partner countries and a million complements of the ITER international research project to join together in an enduring way in their common fight against climate change.
French President Macron and leaders from the European Union, China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the ITER Organisation declare the beginning of a new energy era with the official start of the assembly of the fusion device at ITER.
Participation will be largely virtual and the event will be broadcast on YouTube live, a spokesperson for ITER told IANS.
