As reported by Vice in their article titled “This Magnet Can Lift an Aircraft Carrier And Will Attempt Nuclear Fusion,” the world is witnessing the emergence of a technological marvel, the Central Solenoid of the megaproject ITER. Standing as tall as a six-story building and possessing the extraordinary ability to lift an aircraft carrier, this magnet is destined to play a pivotal role in an experiment that could hold the key to producing unlimited clean energy without harming our planet.
The inaugural module of the Central Solenoid is currently embarking on a monumental journey from California to France. This milestone, jointly announced by ITER and General Atomics, a company that dedicated a decade to its design and fabrication, marks a significant step in realizing ITER’s mission. ITER, named after the Latin word for “the way,” is a groundbreaking endeavor aimed at pioneering nuclear fusion, a sought-after form of carbon-free energy, often likened to creating a “Sun on Earth.”
