A triumph of old fashioned nuclear radiation proof space tech.

Thay should make more of them.

Nice science observation in the article too.

Ever noticed that tokamak plasma physics and solar pre flare magnetic bottling look exactly the same?

A lot of Tokamak reactor builds generated miniature solar flares before going "Phut", and melting their immediate neighbourhood, makes energy conversion to usaeble power rather tricky long term with a tokamak.
