Caption: ASDEX Upgrade fusion reactor. Technician working inside the ASDEX (Axially Symmetric Divertor Experiment) tokamak fusion reactor at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Germany. Fusion reactors create plasma, a state that is extremely high in temperature (over 100 million degrees Celsius). The extreme conditions allow atomic nuclei to fuse into heavier nuclei, releasing energy in the process. This photo is heavily distorted by the use of a very wide angle lens.
