Stress corrosion cracking and welding nonconformities are behind ITER’s fresh delays
The ITER Organization is working on a new baseline schedule for the magnetic confinement fusion experiment launched in 1985 and now under construction in southern France. First plasma was scheduled for December 2025 and deuterium-tritium operations for 2035 under a schedule approved in November 2016 that will soon be shelved. In addition to impacts from COVID-19 delays and uncertainty resulting from Russia’s war in Ukraine, ITER leaders must now factor in repair time for “component challenges.”

The Nuclear and Emerging Technologies for Space (NETS 2018) topical meeting is the premier meeting for sharing of ideas related to nuclear technology research and development, testing, experimentation, deployment and manufacturing for use in space or non-terrestrial planetary bodies. There were over 80 papers presented which provided the following specific areas of interest (1) Electrical power generation both radioisotope and fission systems for both space and surface-based applications, (2) nuclear propulsion applications, and (3) the infrastructure, facilities and mission support elements necessary to deploy such technology successfully.
