Professors Ruzic and Andruczyk will give you a guided tour of the plasma facilities in the Center for Plasma Material Interactions laboratories, and blow up a few things for you.  He will tell you about, and show you how plasmas are used to make everything from semiconductor chips to fusion energy.  In addition he will tell you about a GIANT FUSION DEVICE operating at Illinois.  HIDRA (Hybrid Illinois Device for Research and Applications) weighs 70 tons and will use 2,000,000 Watts of electricity.  Hail HIDRA!
