So, big things are happening in Germany right now. While we've been twiddling our thumbs in the office, they've been building a huge, 50ft machine, which has the potential capability of providing the world with endless energy.
Here it is being built, from 2005 to 2014...
It's taken them 19 years (yes, 19) to finish building the W7-X stellarator, as it's been scientifically named, and it's reportedly being switched on today.
The aim is that plasma (at 100 million degrees) will be held in place for as long as 30 minutes by six enormous, chilled coils that'll deliver a huge pulse of electricity.
It's basically the workings of a fusion reactor, but with a far higher yield of energy than traditional models.
And no, this isn't gonna end the world like the Hadron collider was supposed to. Well, we hope. You never know.
