    Please join the U.S. Fusion Outreach Team! This is a national group of fusion scientists, teachers, students, and fusion advocates in general to provide a unified platform for national magnetic fusion outreach effort.

The Wendelstein 7 X stellarator achieved its First Plasma milestone on 10 December 2015. The accuracy of the magnet system was verified by electron-beam field mapping and expected island structures were observed. The first plasma consisted of Helium and reached about 1 million degrees Celsius. (Photos: IPP)
