On May 20, eighth grade science students were treated to a presentation by Charlie Sanabria, a doctoral student at FSU who is affiliated with the High Magnetic Research Lab in Tallahassee. He spoke to the students about his work with ITER, the International Thermonuclear Energy Reactor presently being built in France. The machine in this reactor will contain 150,000,000-degree plasma, and will try to sustain a fusion process to generate electricity. The plasma will be contained in the machine by superconducting magnets, which is Charlie's specialty. Nuclear power plants now are using the process of nuclear fission, which is not totally safe, and has dangerous waste materials. If the ITER project is successful, it will mean an abundant, clean, and safe supply of energy without generating any greenhouse gases. In this photo, Sanabria poses with C.A. Gray science teachers. From left are Maurice Leroux, Lajean Reid, Patty Norman, Sanabria, Ann Horne and Cliff Willis.
