Berrill Lecture Theatre, Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA

Speakers: Prof Steve Cowley

In a decade, the international fusion experiment ITER will start operating in the south of France. This historic experiment will generate up to 500 megawatts and provide a proof of principle for fusion energy. Fusion has the potential to provide a large fraction of our energy for millions of years.
Prof Cowley will describe the scientific progress in fusion -- from Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington's prophetic predictions in 1920 to the remarkable results that have lead to ITER. There are challenging problems that must be solved to make fusion power a commercial option. I will outline these problems and worldwide efforts to find their solution.
