Tokamak - Creating the Sun on Earth

Come and see our Canadian contribution to nuclear fusion, a possible future source of energy! The Tokamak de Varennes operated as a research device to study the confinement and heating of plasma, in the hope of achieving a working fusion reactor. Visitors are able to peek inside the Tokamak vacuum chamber, the vessel designed to bring plasma to fusion.
