Re: A b-ITER disappointment

I am pleased you made it to the actual site, However ....

The French have a habit of calling absolutely *anybody* who works for government (theirs, or town council, or from some other country) a "civil servant". Whether engineers, physicists, etc.

In fact ITER France has staff from from 35 different countries, speaking 40 different languages, and very many took their families with them to France. They do not have 600 French Sir Humphreys in one building, thankfully.

Additionally, yes, 3 years ago maybe there would have not been much to see. However, they are starting to put components into buildings right now and are building other parts, in Japan and so on.
