A gigantic puzzle officially began on Tuesday July 28 in the south of France, with the launch of the assembly of the Iter project reactor in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance (Bouches-du-Rhône). This international program aims to control the production of energy from the fusion of hydrogen, as in the heart of the sun.
[ARCHIVE] Article published on December 31, 2019
This is perhaps where the future of the world is at stake, in the center of Cadarache in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance, about forty kilometers north-east of Aix-en-Provence, at the confluence of the Verdon and the Durance. Giant cranes and huge concrete installations have replaced the pines on this vast plateau where 3,000 people of some thirty different nationalities work every day to carry out what is arguably one of the most important scientific programs ever launched, supposed to end in a quarter of a century.
“Iterville” is a sort of international enclave between the Lubéron and the Alpilles, which covers 200 hectares, the same area as the Principality of Monaco. Here is built the first thermonuclear fusion experimental reactor in the world, Iter, the English acronym for “International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor”, but also the translation of the word “path” in Latin.
Ten times the temperature of the sun
“A human dream to recreate on earth the limitless energy of the stars from a single water molecule”, enthuses Bernard Bigot, the director general of the project and former boss of the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), in charge since 2015.
Unlike nuclear reactors where energy is obtained by breaking the nuclei of uranium atoms, Iter’s operation is based on the fusion of hydrogen nuclei, brought to very high temperature. The heat released produces steam, which is converted into electricity by turbines and alternators.
“Our challenge is both size and watchmaker precision. It is necessary to reach 150 million degrees, ten times the temperature of the sun in a box thirty meters high and in diameter with an adjustment of the installations to the nearest half a millimeter ”, explains Bernard Bigot. This huge cauldron is called a “tokamak”, Russian acronym for “toroidal chamber with magnetic coils”, a process developed by Soviet physicists, including Andrei Sakharov. Inside will be installed a kind of air chamber with a double wall of stainless steel in which the plasma will circulate, this fourth state of matter obtained when electrons detach from their nuclei.
An extraordinary site
The civil works of the tokamak were completed on November 8, 2019. “It is one of the most complex projects that we have had to build”, says Jérôme Stubler, president of Vinci Construction. In total, 105,000 m3 concrete and 20,000 tonnes of steel were needed for this 120-meter-wide and 73-meter-high building. “It is large enough to accommodate the Arc de Triomphe”, notes Fabrice Lemaire, who led the work, launched in 2010.
On this pharaonic site, Vinci’s engineers had to develop very specific concretes intended to shield the radiation generated by the fusion reaction. The building rests on 493 columns surmounted by anti-seismic pads. It must be able to support a load of 23,000 tons, or 3.5 times that of the Eiffel Tower. We had to put 750 kg of scrap per m3 concrete in some places, almost ten times more than in a conventional structure. “We are using reinforcement densities rarely reached in structures of this magnitude and without digital 3D design tools, everything would have been much more complicated”, adds Jérôme Stubler. This project was completed on time and within the budget of 700 million euros initially planned.
A scientific bet
But Iter’s adventure is still very long. The next big step is planned for 2025 with the injection of hydrogen and the production of the first plasma. It will take at least ten more years to complete the final adjustments. “Around 2040, we should be able to tell electricians that it is working, and the first reactors could come into service around 2060”, Bernard Bigot forecast. “It may sound like a long time, but we cannot shorten the time. “
Today, in fact, scientists have already succeeded in carrying out nuclear fusion, but only on a very small scale and above all by consuming ten times more energy than was produced. Iter’s objective is the opposite: to obtain 500 megawatts (MW) of fusion power, by injecting only 50 MW. By comparing, “A thermal power station consumes 8 to 10 million fossil fuels per year, against 350 kg of hydrogen with Iter, for the same energy power and without polluting emissions”, assures the former boss of the CEA.
According to him, the process will generate little radioactive waste and only short-lived, of the order of a few decades. “All countries know that our current model of energy production is not sustainable for a planet of 8 billion inhabitants. This explains the success of this international cooperation around the project, the dimension of which is as much scientific as geopolitical ”, says Bernard Bigot.
A project born during the cold war era
Its genesis dates back to 1985 in Geneva, during a summit between the United States and the USSR, in the midst of the Cold War. It was the first meeting between US President Ronald Reagan and his Soviet counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev. They decided to launch a common thermo-nuclear fusion program. The European Union and Japan joined the project in 1987, followed in 2003 by China and South Korea, then India. In 2005, the choice of the site, in Cadarache (Bouches-du-Rhône), which since 1959 has housed a research center of the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), was made, under pressure from Jacques Chirac, the then President of the Republic.
“Iter’s operation is complex, but I have never seen any dissension between the seven partners who each bring their skills”, says Bernard Bigot. The electrical conversion plant comes from the United States, the superconducting coils are made in Japan, and the cryostat, the largest steel vacuum vessel ever built, arrives from India. The parts are unloaded at the port of Fos-sur-Mer and transit by exceptional convoy to Cadarache on a specially developed road of around one hundred kilometers. “In contempt of the environment”, denounce the opponents.
A budget multiplied by four
Because despite the optimism displayed by the Iter teams, headquartered in Barcelona, critics continue to rain on this project, far from unanimous in the scientific community. Like the Flamanville EPR, this project which promises a “Other nuclear” has also slipped. From five billion euros originally planned, the bill has already reached twenty billion euros, and the schedule has been revised by at least five years.
Within the European Union, which provides 45% of funding, the subject has become very sensitive at a time when renewable energies are on the rise, such as solar, whose costs are constantly falling. Environmentalists are still standing against Iter. “A financial abyss and a scientific chimera”, assures MEP Michèle Rivasi, who calls on the EU to exit “Of this Promethean dream”. In any case, reconstructing the interior of a small sun on earth is not for now.
Fusion, instructions for use
At equal mass, the fusion of light atoms is believed to release four million times more energy than burning oil and four times more than current nuclear fission reactors.
The fuels used are two isotopes natural hydrogen. There is deuterium, easily extracted from water in lakes and oceans, and tritium, which is much rarer on earth. Iter’s engineers plan to produce it on site by irradiating lithium, which would be in sufficient quantity in the earth’s crust.
The fusion does not release into the atmosphere than helium, a chemically inert gas. The radioactive waste produced would be “short lived”.
The fusion reaction is “Inherently safe”, say the promoters of the project. According to them, the major risk is that of a fire.
For this second evening since the resumption of the NBA, beIN Sports 1 offers us the meeting between the Brooklyn Nets and the Orlando Magic. Kick-off is scheduled live at 8:30 p.m. This match between two teams from the Eastern Conference will oppose two franchises most likely qualified for the play-offs as the 9th Washington seems far away and will play without Bradley Beal his best player. The main challenge is to finish in 7th place and thus avoid the scarecrow Bucks in the 1st round. And for that, the Nets may (re) start with a short advantage of a victory, the advantage is in Orlando since they will approach this last part of the season almost entirely, when the workforce of Brooklyn is decimated (Durant and Irving long-term injuries, Jordan, Prince, Dinwiddie et Beasley affected by COVID-19). Note that although the matches all take place in Orlando, it is not strictly speaking a big advantage for the Magic because they will not be in their room and the matches will obviously take place behind closed doors.
[Basket US] As part of the NBA Sundays, the Philadelphia 76ers travel to California to face the Los Angeles Clippers this Sunday, March 1. The match will be broadcast live from Staples Center on BeIn Sport 3 at 9:30 p.m.!
Before this 2019-20 season, Clippers and Bucks were among the favorites for the Larry O’Brien Trophy, as were the Lakers of Lebron and Davis or the Bucks of Antetokounmpo. On the one hand, the flashy recruitment of Californians with the arrival of Paul George from OKC and of course the NBA champion Kawhi Leonard just crowned the supreme title with the Raptors. On the other hand, Philadelphia and its “process” which allowed it to draft Ben Simmons, Joël Embiid and then add confirmed players like Al Horford or Tobias Harris.
Where are these teams today, entering the final quarter of the regular season? A bit far from the expectations of the start of the seasons, it must be said. The Clippers have benefited very little from their star duo, PG having chained the injuries, and are only in 3rd place in the West in the fight with the Nuggets and Rockets for the place of dolphin of the Lakers who already have 6 more victories. Phillie for his part disappoints even more because they were expected as the main opponent of the Bucks for 1st place in the East. However, Brett Brown’s players are in an unexpected fifth place, far from the leading trio of Toronto, Boston and the Bucks (who have 13 (!) More successes).
Having gone through many ups and downs, the Mr. Robot series ended on December 22 on the USA Network with a double episode episode. It has come to an end to a season of high flying, which will undoubtedly remain one of the creative peaks of the decade. When authors as brilliant and determined as Sam Esmail attack the “powerful people of this world who play the good gods without authorization”, this opens up a field of possibilities for the visionary artists of tomorrow.
Warning ! It is better to have seen the whole
from Mr. Robot before reading this post.
Episode 1.04, entitled “eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4”. AT
short of morphine, Elliot begins to hallucinate to the point where we can no longer precisely dissociate reality from fantasy (already that in normal times, it was not
not too much…). He talks to his black fish, Qwerty, who urges him to place his
jar in front of the window to break his routine a little bit. A cup, and Elliot
ends up at the restaurant with Angela cutting a black fish to pieces
who looks furiously like poor Qwerty that we just got
to leave. Elliot’s hand reveals the presence of a key; Angela thinks she sees
a ring and immediately accepts her alleged marriage proposal, under the
applause from customers seated around them. Then Elliot enters the
arcade room that is usually the headquarters of fsociety. There is
found, under a painted portrait displaying an extra wide smile worthy of
Joker, Angela, in a wedding dress, who announces to him in a cryptic tone that he is not
not Elliot but … [perte de connexion]
It was July 2015, more than four years ago. The episode
was not even signed Sam Esmail, but Adam Penn (and directed by Nisha Ganatra, whose
this will be the only contribution to the series). However, everything was already there,
ready to be revealed to us … without that damn loss of connection that occurred at
worst time. In the final episode of the series (this time written and directed
by Esmail in person), the latter has fun replaying the arcade scene
almost plan by plan (even if their number differs). But this time, we
clearly hears Angela say to Elliot – or rather, to whom we took for
Elliot from the very beginning of the series – that he is actually the “Brain”
(“The Mastermind”), one of the personalities that Elliot was made up of
and who imposed himself on him until he took control of operations. (Note that
the series is close in that to two creations of the American cable which would win
to be recognized at their fair value: United states of tara,
broadcast from 2009 to 2011 on Showtime, and Wilfred, broadcast from 2011 to 2013
on FX before being relegated to FXX for its final season.)
Like David Benioff & D. B. Weiss having fun at
replay and extend, in the concluding episode of Game Of Thrones, a
premonitory vision of Daenerys acceding to the Iron Throne (“Valar
Morghulis “, 2.10), Esmail mischievously makes us understand that he
it was enough to open your chakras to realize that the end of the story
was at hand, that there was only to tender slightly this one to there
to access. In retrospect, this may seem trivial: an author having in
head the last chapter of his tale when undertaking the first, the
great deal … Novelists will tell you that such a conception is nothing
very exceptional. However, needless to say, a series is not a novel
– particularly in the case of Mr. Robot, which had its beginnings
dizzying (societal, technical mastery, power of embodiment)
before getting bogged down in a second season that quickly transformed the
prodigies in “tricks” with too obvious strings. See such
series fall back on its legs after getting lost along the way this of
enjoyable that serial writing is not a straight line (even in the case
series that feel like they should never fail, like Sopranos
or from breaking Bad). We pad, we plug, we patch up; we
try to stay the course, and we pray that all this ends in apotheosis. Apotheosis:
the word perfectly matches the impression left by the conclusion of Mr.
Robot. The “Brain” and his black hooded sweatshirt joined the
gods of Olympus, letting (re) appear in the eyes of Darlene – his “constant”
– Elliot’s real face. End
(beginning?) of the story.
Maelstrom of emotions
There would be so many other things to write about the outcome
of Mr. Robot (and the entire series) that a modest blog post is not there
not be enough. We will have to come back to it, again and again, on the occasion of chronicles,
specials, festivals, study days, courses
academics. From this point of view, the series is just beginning.
Darlene Alderson (Carly Chaikin)
all the same, to point out certain salient aspects of the last moments of the
series, like Alan Sepinwall having
got into the habit of delivering
at the end of the article:
– Beyond its narrative complexity, the finale of Mr. Robot has fully respected the tradition of “closing
the loop “by multiplying the winks at the beginning of the series (by the image,
by sound). Many places and plans are revisited there in order to produce
disturbing echoes acting like stimuli memorials. More notable: this
ending allows the series to adopt a circular shape which appears the
end to a mirror of the beginning. A fascinating exercise consists of watching this title
the pilot just after finishing the series: after Darlene pronounced
the words “Hello, Elliot”, we hear Elliot answer him “Hello,
friend “(words which correspond to the titles of the episodes respectively of
closing and opening of the series). See again Mr. Robot in his
all will be, without a doubt, rich in lessons …
– In one article
previous, I predicted that Angela would hold a prominent place in the
conclusion of the series, and frowned upon the track
science fiction which consisted of exploring parallel universes. Sure
these two points, the choices made by Esmail turned out to be radical to say the least,
which did not stop the series from reaching artistic heights during
this fourth and last season. The inaugural scene, of confining Angela
at the bottom of the plan and abruptly eliminate it after a long “negotiation”
with Philip Price (initiated at the end of the previous season), will remain engraved
in many memories. Deprive yourself of such a magnetic character and
enigmatic will undoubtedly have cost the last season of the series (even if one
sporadically reviews Angela in her last two episodes); however,
the confidence with which Esmail will have taken its choice and led its boat until
destination commands respect. As for parallel universes, we know
now that they were to be reconciled with the dissociative disorder of Elliot’s identity.
This means that the series did not completely get off its rails at the time
to conclude, conversely, for example, from Parks and Recreation or, side
French, from Do
not this, don’t do that.
The question of the true identity of the “friend” (“Hello,
friend “) that Elliot regularly talks to, looking at the camera – that is,
towards us – continues to arise. During one last therapy session, Krista
(in a version imagined by Elliot) explains to him that she is
aware of our presence – we “voyeurs who think we are outside
when they followed everything “(” the voyeurs who think they aren’t a
part of this, despite being here for all of it ”). Does that make us more
than mere spectators, another Elliot personality, even Elliot
himself? The mystery remains (ra) whole.
In his will to leave no doubt hanging
on the tangibility of the events portrayed by the series, Esmail sometimes turns to
the text explanation a bit demonstrative. I am thinking in particular of the scene
of a hospital where Darlene explains to the “Brain”: “I assure you,
it’s real. I’ve been by your side all along: fsociety, our E hack
Corp, the Five / Nine, your time in prison, the cyber-attacks, the accounts of
those dung that we dumped after what they did to Angela. Angela is dead. Like Romero, Trenton,
Mobley, Shayla. Elliot, I wouldn’t lie to you: it’s not in
your head. It’s real. “The scene strongly reminds of the last exchange
between Christian Shephard and his son in the finale of Lost (without the church
and the soothing slowdowns that Damon Lindelof continues to bite
fingers). There is clearly a desire to reassure the viewer, to
explain to him that he has not been fooled for four seasons, even if it means paying
in the “summary” of previous episodes. (This explanation
also sounds like a disavowal of the first half of season 2, during
from which Elliot imagined returning to his mother when he was languishing in
reality in prison.)
– Mr. Robot will never really have been
a series from USA Network. It will be briefly posed there, like a UFO
in search of contact, before leaving without anything having changed to his
to have promised bolder series (“We the Bold”), USA
Network has indeed fallen back into a form of comfortable mediocrity, alone
the darker tone of the speech making it possible to differentiate from the “blue
TV skies ”that preceded (let’s get out of the lot all the same The Sinner,
seasonal anthology slightly less programmatic than its counterparts). For
For his part, Esmail has never ceased to claim his opposition to
conventions established by the basic cable: refusal of black fade (replaced
by abrupt cuts used to signal the unwanted intrusion of spots
advertising), diversion of shortened title pages (intended, in
general, to leave more room for advertising), use of a grammar
stylistic and particularly confusing curvy narration for a
non-regular audience, etc. Seasons 3 and 4 were also broadcast at a
hour later than the previous ones, under the protective wing of the “safe
harbor “, which allowed them to go further in verbal expression
and visual of the violence (just count the number of “fuck”
pronounced audibly in the last season to realize that we are far from
the sampling allowed by John Landgraf on FX …). When the edition comes out
DVD of season 4 of Mr. Robot, it will be difficult to say the least
of the television version, so much Esmail will have fought to distinguish its creation
from the USA Network.
The hearings of Mr. Robot have not stopped
decrease with the seasons. If the pilot of the series was seen by almost 2
million viewers on USA Network (according to reports from the institute
Nielsen), the final episode drew only about 300,000 fans of the
first hour. Morality: do not read the audience curves (especially at
the era of “Peak TV”) to get an idea of the quality of a
series. Especially since the international impact of an atypical work like Mr.
Robot greatly exceeds the truth allegedly established by a few
It’s in a movie theater that
different Elliot personalities meet, at the end of the final episode,
to attend the screening of the film of his life. Rarely will a series
affirmed also cinematographic, whether by form or by multiples
references summoned. Mr. Robot is the ideal witness to a successful marriage
between cinema and television, in what is most fusional but
also, sometimes, more chaotic. That television feeds on cinema should not
no longer be the object of sterile bell-tower wars, especially as the converse is
now also true.
– The musical accompaniment of Mr. Robot often hold
prodigy. Besides the score electric (and electrifying) composed by Mac
Quayle, the titles chosen to illustrate, derealize or make more
still mind-blowing the adventures of Elliot, fsociety and the Dark Army are missing
rarely to redouble the hypnotic power of images. So from Mr. Roboto
de Styx (1983), whose lyrics resonate funny with the revelations
finals of the series: “I’ve got a secret I’ve been hiding under my
heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain IBM. […] The time has come at
last to throw away this mask. Now
everyone can see my true identity ”. One might wonder if Esmail didn’t
designed the series solely with a view to inserting this madeleine of
Personal Proust in the Final Episode … I’m also thinking of this reunion
poignant between Dominique and Darlene, in the episode “410 Gone”
(4.10). By voice command, Dom intimate to his Alexa connected speaker
start a Faith Hill playlist. The two young women then argue over
attitude towards the threat posed by the Dark Army (now
that the bank funds of the Deus group have been misappropriated and the compromise of Zhang
revealed). Dom and Darlene appear at the height of an unspoken sexual tension
suddenly in profile, facing one another, suddenly mute, while being heard
the insistent words of the chorus of This Kiss (1998): “This
kiss, this kiss “. Will the coveted kiss happen? In the meantime, the disorder that takes hold of the two false
rivals at the time this musical injunction is given is worth all
hugs of the world.
Three orcas were sighted this weekend in the Strait of Messina, located between Sicily and Italy. This would be the same group as the one observed a few days ago off the port of Genoa (north-western Italy), according to a Facebook post from the Marecamp association on Sunday.
The three mammals would therefore have traveled “800 km in a week”, according to Clara Monaco, marine biologist of the association. The presence of these endangered animals in this strait is a “first”.
Risk of collision with ships
It is a 25-year-old sport fisherman who saw them and approached them this Friday while he was sailing on a boat. “I was first afraid because they are huge animals,” says Simone Vartuli. “But I stayed with them for almost an hour and ended up being very close, about a yard. “
“We do not know if they went down to Sicily to find food or to go then to the Strait of Gibraltar, then the ocean and Iceland”, clarifies Clara Monaco. Their presence in the strait is problematic because of “the significant maritime traffic in this area and therefore the risk of collision with ships. “
Many endangered species in the Mediterranean
The biologist recalls that it is important not to get too close to these animals, which are “very stressed” in nature. “If someone sees them, he must immediately warn the coast guard” so that the association can collect scientific information, she adds.
Orcas are found in all oceans and seas on the planet, but generally prefer colder regions. The Mediterranean is home to eleven species of cetaceans, including orcas, fin whales, sperm whales and bottlenose dolphins, all considered vulnerable species. Accidental fishing, tourist pressure, noise generated by oil prospecting and maritime traffic are all threats to these species.

While two children are still actively sought in Idaho, new elements highlight the troubled role of their stepfather, remarried to their mother just two weeks after the death of his wife.
Authorities are still without news of Joshua and Tylee. The 7-year-old boy and the 17-year-old teenager have been missing since September. While relatives fear that their mother has joined a religious sect called “Preparing a People” with her new husband, the portrait of this man is slowly emerging. Lori Vallow, married Chad Daybell after losing his wife two weeks earlier.
Tammy Daybell died in circumstances which remain to be clarified, her body was exhumed in early December. His death is all the more disturbing as Chad Daybell, in writings intended for Mormon readers, would have announced the death of his wife, like “a prophecy”, indicates the “Daily Beast”. He would have even confided to a friend, Julie Rowe, to have had visions “on the death of his wife”: “The angels told him that he was going to lose Tammy”. Julie Rowe, herself a member of this religious group, has also claimed to use her own visions to send messages to Chad Daybell. She assures us that the two children are well: “I can see their energy and I know that they are in a bright house”.
Other strange deaths
Lori Vallow’s husband also recently died. In July, he was shot and killed by his brother who had claimed to be in self-defense. The latter passed away some time later.
Since the report of the disappearance of the two children, Lori Vallox and Chad Daybell have continued to lie to the police about the location of the children considered to be in great danger. Interviewed by Fox News, Brandon Boudreaux, married to Lori Vallow’s niece, then let it be known that it was possible that the family had joined a sect. According to him, Chad Daybell has long been an active member of the radical religious group affiliated with Mormons and whose major concern is the end of the world.
St. Paul (dpa) – ice hockey international Tom Kühnhackl has celebrated another victory with the New York Islanders in the North American NHL after three consecutive defeats.
The Brooklyn-based team defeated Minnesota Wild 3-1 away (0-1, 0-0, 3-0). The 27-year-old Landshuter scored his first goal of the season in the 58th minute to make it 3-1. National goalkeeper Thomas Greiss was not used. With 51 points, the Islanders are in second place in the Metropolitan Division.
Tobias Rieder and Calgary Flames clearly lost 2: 4 (0: 3, 1: 0, 1: 1) in the Canadian duel against the Vancouver Canucks. The 26-year-old Landshuter remained without a scorer point.
The Anaheim Ducks were beaten by the Philadelphia Flyers 1: 2 (1: 1, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 1) after extra time. The Munich Korbinian Holzer remained without counting at the bankruptcy of his team.
MUSIC. Country and retro music will be featured at the 13e edition of the Nashville en Beauce Festival which will take place from July 23 to August 2.
The first weekend of festivities will begin with a performance by singer Brigitte Boisjoli on Friday July 24. The latter will present her concert Women, during which she will pay tribute to the American icons Brenda Lee, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, among others.
It will then be the turn of singer-songwriter Sylvain Cossette to entertain festival-goers the next day with the presentation of his tour 80s.
On the second weekend, the festival will first welcome artist Roch Voisine, on Friday July 31. To highlight the 10e anniversary of the release of the initial part of his album Americana in Quebec, he will perform songs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, in particular popularized by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Neil Young and Willie Lamothe.
Taking up many disco hits in a sexy and flamboyant atmosphere, the group Boogie Wonder Band, whose members will be dressed in scintillating costumes, will ensure its last evening of 1er August with his show called Platinum.
Note that all of the performances will take place at Place Transport Raymond Tardif, located inside the Desjardins Recreation Center (new arena).
Presale in progress
Those interested in these musical evenings will be able to purchase unique general admission tickets, VIP seats or combos, in advance, until Friday, July 10, 2020.
It is also possible to buy one or the other of these packages now by going to the convenience store Marché Abénakis de Saint-Prosper, by calling President Suzanne Lantagne at 418-313-3850 or by visiting the event website at www.nashvilleenbeauce.com, where different awards are posted.
