Description of JET (Joint European Torus)

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes jet (joint european torus) in the following terms: [1] Based near Oxford, JET’s research objective is the development of nuclear fusion as a safer energy source than nuclear fission. The siting of JET (in which some non-EC countries also participate) was the subject of a notorious dispute between the UK and Germany, eventually settled in 1977 at head of government level.
