Image of the Day: Japan's Large Helical Device

The good folks in Toki, Japan are busy plugging away at solutions to the energy crisis… with the largest superconducting stellarator ever made.

Sounds pretty tricky, so I'm gonna leave the whole harnessing solar fusion to the experts and enjoy the sheer beauty of this image.
