Recreating the sun

The International Thermonuclear ExperimentalReactor, or ITER, will be built at Cadarache, in the south of France and will be a consortium to manufacture and supply superconducting coils.
The multibillion dollar project will be the world’s largest fusion experiment, with contributions from the European Union, the United States, Russia, and Asian countries.
ITER will attempt to re-create the conditions of the process that powers the sun, in order to manufacture a potentially endless supply of renewable, carbon-dioxide-free energy.
One potential goal of ITER is to replace nuclear power generation, and large companies that work with nuclear power have been able to supply a great deal of the necessary experience to design ITER’s buildings and systems and to help determine the safety procedures.
