Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light follows the story of dedicated scientists working to build a small sun on Earth, which would unleash perpetual, cheap, clean energy for mankind. After the screening, Peter Rindt, PhD student at the Technical University Eindhoven, will talk about his personal experience and motivation for his work in fusion research.

Time & Tickets

In the southern French countryside, a group of scientists from 37 countries around the world are collaboratively building the world’s most complex experiment. If it fails, it will be one of the biggest scientific and political blunders of all time. Meanwhile, maverick inventors in garages are also trying to unlock nuclear fusion, at a fraction of the cost. Sceptics are not convinced. As it is often said: ‘Nuclear fusion is the energy of the future...and always will be!’ Are we about to engineer our way out of the energy crisis, or betting on a lottery ticket that won’t pay off?

Peter Rindt, PhD student at the Technical University Eindhoven, will talk about his personal experience and motivation for his work in fusion research.
