JET interior in 1983; credit: UKAEA
JET is the physics model for ITER and, without the results achieved, ITER would not have been possible. I want to praise the European team who constructed the project, a team who was so dedicated and who felt so strongly that this project belonged to them. This team was composed of physicists and personnel coming mainly from the European fusion laboratories.
– Paul-Henri Rebut, director of JET (1985-1992)
