"50 years have been necessary to develop plasma physics and fusion research...We have done our best, and we only need to maintain our effort for a much shorter period [of time] to ensure that the goal is achieved. The dream is alive! Now fusion energy is an achievable goal!" (IAEA Geneva, Oct 2008)​

Five years later the public opinion about the prospects for fusion energy is still skeptical in Europe. That is why ENERGLOBE asked Osama Motojima, DG of the ITER-Project, how he responds to this skeptical attitude today.
