Science in Boston this week: Sharks, beetles and slide rulers

The ITER project, under construction in France, is an international effort to “demonstrate the scientific and technological feasibility of fusion power.” Carlos Alejandre,. ITER Deputy Director-General, speaks at 2  MIT on the “safety characteristics of ITER (and by extension of fusion) … and their possible impact on people and the environment.” The event comes as the MIT fusion project — the Alcator C-Mod – is facing shut down, in part, to free up  U.S. funds for ITER.  More on that debate at Nature News and on MIT specifically, here at Nature Boston.
