Imagine if life on Earth was not dependent on the Sun - if the Earth had its own sun, serving as a giant local energy plant. This video of a 2009 Falling Walls Conference lecture features physicist Norbert Holtkamp, internationally acclaimed expert in high-energy colliders and linear accelerators and principal deputy director-general of the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor, or ITER. This research and engineering project aims to translate today's studies of plasma physics into tomorrow's electricity-producing fusion plants. ITER addresses a key challenge that our civilization will have to face over the next decades: how to provide sufficient, clean energy in the context of diminishing fossil resources and increasing demand for energy. As "iter" means "the way" in Latin, the ITER project hopes to show "the way" to harnessing nuclear fusion as a power source for the future.
