On July 31, 2002, at 6.25 p.m. the last experiment was run in the Wendelstein 7-AS stellarator at the Max Planck Institute for Plasmaphysics in Garching (IPP), Germany. The device was closed after 14 years of successful work as the first machine of the“Advanced stellarator” generation. The resources and personnel are now transferred.
