Cheers exploded loud and simultaneously the moment when the monitor in the HT-7 Tokamak Control Room flashed a red “0” for its historic 100,000th discharge at 10am Saturday, March 15, 2008, spanning 14 years from the first discharge on the machine in December 1994. 


Champagne and Ganbei…to celebrate this milestone occasion; photos and signatures…to remember this happy moment.


A swarm of more than 150 scientists, engineers and students, packing the Control Room, witnessed the discharge when Prof Jiangang LI, Director of ASIPP, pushed the “start” button on the control panel. Among the crowd are Prof Tetsuo TOI from National Institute of Fusion Science (NIFS) Japan and three Pakistan scholars.


The Spring round of HT-7 experiment campaign began on Feb. 20, will continue to the end of this month.
