Swiss Plasma Center Mission

The Swiss Plasma Center is one of the world’s leading fusion research laboratories. Through a wide range of research programs, all connected to education and training at different levels, we work to advance our understanding of the physics of plasmas and develop fusion as an energy source.

'Let There Be Light', the film about the quest for fusion

The film, directed by Mila Aung-Thwin and Van Royko, presents projects and research carried out in order to master fusion.
It gives the floor to scientists, engineers and technicians who dedicate a significant fraction of their lives to this masterful project: to make a Sun on Earth, an energy source for generations to come. The viewer is transported to the heart of ITER and visit other facilities around the world.
Mark Henderson, one of the actors and former collaborator of the Swiss Plasma Center, will be present and will answer your questions at the end of the film.

By: Dr M. Henderson, acteur; Prof. A. Fasoli, Directeur du SPC; Dr Y. Martin, adjoint du Directeur du SPC
