The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy recently invited the public to an art and photography exhibition held at the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot near Oxford. Among other things, the ‘Making Sun on Earth’ exposition promoted videos and photographs of fusion technology scientists working for the English fusion facilities. The idea was to show the individuals behind fusion science. They are not ‘mad professors’ in white coats but ordinary people with a strong personal motivation: Eva Belonohy, experimental physicist at JET, Stephen Hall, engineering group leader at CCFE, Sarah Medley, graduate physicist at CCFE, David Homfray, plasma heating engineer at JET, Lydia Feasey, mechanical technician at CCFE and James Buchanan, theoretical physicist were some of the introduced personalities.
