Encouraging news that they're now looking beyond ITER to the development of DEMO, a first prototype fusion power plant.

Here, JET has just completed a rebuild, installing new linings to the core walls to demonstrate materials for ITER.

So progress continues!

Yes, it's very encouraging, isn't it, to consider that they're beginning to look beyond ITER to first commercial build? Obviously, it will be many years in the future, but the process is off the ground.
