Tour a Nuclear Fusion Reactor

Just had an email from the nuclear fusion research centre just outside Reading with the dates for their 2010 open evenings.

The dates are: 19th May, 13th July, 15th September, 20th October, 24th November.

All are on Wednesday evenings and start at 7pm. To reserve places, call 01235 466608 or email stating how many tickets and the date you want.

The tours start are free – and is a really fascinating view of a potential replacement energy supply for, well – almost everything – gas, coal, oil – and it could get rid of the ugly side of nuclear power – nuclear fission.

My previous visit can be read about here.

I would strongly advise booking asap, as places tend to “sell out” fairly quickly.

    Visited earlier in the year after the last time you mentioned it. Really recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest in science and the future of energy.

    Top-notch presentation at the start followed by tours of the facility by scientists who are enthusiastic about their job.

    PS I think “just outside” Reading is a bit generous given Oxford is half the distance away! Easy to get to by train.

      I know, I just tend to think of it being near Reading as that is the route I take to get to it.

      Although last time, we did come back via Oxford.
