Visit at the Max-Planck Institute for plasma physics

Due to a second prize I won at a science competition here in Germany, I additionally got an invitation to the Max-Planck Institute for plasmaphysics.
You've probably heard of nuclear fusion (read more). The scientist at the IPP deal with fusion's problems on earth.
There are two kinds of fusion reactors:
1.The stellarator   2. The Tokamak
At the IPP there's one Tokamak called ASDEX upgrade
and there's a Stellarator under construction called Wendelstein 7X.
Nuclear Fusion is absolutley fascinating - that's why I took a lot of pictures:

  6. As a budding Macrohistorian, my first thought was about how our rate of technological, moral and spiritual progress is exponential; seventy years ago we were in the middle of an industrial hellhole of genocide and pain; seven hundred years ago the world was under the iron oppression of religious superpowers; seven thousand years ago the world was an agricultural nightmare and seventy thousand years ago we were tribalised hunter gatherers, just trolling along. And look at this now :)
