Having grown up all over the United States, at age 14 Mark Henderson learned about nuclear fusion and decided he would dedicate his life to making it happen. He received a PhD in Physics that offered a ticket to work in Lausanne, Switzerland on the TCV tokamak. After 16 years, he headed to the south of France to work on the ITER tokamak in charge of the microwave system that heats the plasma. Mark’s dream job is either what he is doing now, or directing a science museum and passing on his passion for physics and fusion. When he is not doing physics stuff, he can usually be found outside, either playing in his garden, looking at all different types of birds (yeah, one of those “birders”), or just enjoying the nature around him.
