Trainee at EUROfusion in Garching

“When I saw Asdex-Upgrade

… I thought of all the progress that could be made from it … progress in terms of energy solutions. Soon, we will run out of fossil fuels. So we’ll have to use new sources of  energy. Fusion and tokamaks are a really great way to obtain energy [in the future].”

“When two people fall in love, the two individuals immediately feel like they have been filled with an extra source of energy like fusing two passionate atoms together. Thermonuclear Fusion produces exactly the same result and conjuring up a considerable amount of energy. Just like the sun, warming up our two lovers, the reaction from the fusion devices is able to supply the world for the rest of the humanity.”
Christophe Roux, Assistant Communication at the Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives found the right words.
