Well, last Wednesday was a particular highlight of my transient existence thus far. What was this amazing highlight ?
It was a trip to the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy organised by those most splendid peeps of Reading Skeptics. Some time ago Mike posted a message on Twitter saying there was one last place on the trip and I almost fell over myself to try and get that place. I couldn’t believe it. A trip to see a fusion reactor ! As a member of the public ? So I could just walk around and see it ?! And maybe talk to some of the people working on it ?!?
My Got-To-See-That-O-Meter went banging right off the end stops.
And so several of us gathered in deepest Oxfordshire to go and see something that is so awesome, so awe inspiring and so vital for the future of human kind that I was fizzing with the excitement of it all.
And then when we got there they told us that we couldn’t see one of these things. We were allowed to see TWO OF THEM !
So, here are some of the pics I took :
