A few weeks ago, months of preparation finally paid off.
For decades, what we’ve called “nuclear” is fission, which is splitting atoms. But when you smash atoms together to create heavier atoms, the story is COMPLETELY different and SO much safer and more powerful. ITER works with fusion, just like the sun; and it’s a totally new game.
And guess what? I got to conduct a very special, on-site interview with Sabina Griffith, Communication Officer at ITER, where we explore the power and potential of ITER, perhaps the largest global scientific collaboration in history, poised to create technology that will allow an abundance of clean, renewable energy.
Sabina brings us up to speed with how interest in fusion got started, why it stalled after the oil crisis, and why ITER is so important. Is fusion energy the key to our green, renewable future? Let’s find out.
- ITER website — ITER project’s main website, where you can book a free tour
- Geneva Summit — the meeting between Gorbachev and President Reagan that Sabina mentions, the origin of the ITER agreement
- ITER podcast — enjoy some exclusive interviews and understand ITER on a deeper level with this podcast
- Andrew’s TikTok & Instagram — where he will be posting some ITER behind-the-scenes glimpses and other travels around France
Mahalo & Thank you for supporting this one-of-a-kind podcast. I hope this helped you imagine what it feels like to visit ITER. More in-person interviews are coming up!
And this week’s member-exclusive bonus is something a bit different: three separate 4K videos, aka. an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look from my tour of ITER!
You receive that, and all of the other aftershows, when you support this podcast on Patreon. Check out all of the bonuses available to you here →
Every share helps so much. Merci & Thank you! 🌺
