I am very pleased to have been invited to participate in this
conference commemorating the date of the 70th birthday of Academician
Lev Artsimovich. Before beginning the technical part o my talk I
would like to pay my special respects to his memory. I met Lev
Artsimovich on many occasions and he always impressed me not only as a
fine scientist but as a man who had the rare quality of being able to
combine a sense of realism with a spirit of optimism. As I perceived
him, he never minimized the difficulty of achieving fusion power, but
he never doubted but that the problem would be solved - especially if
fusion research could be carried out in a spirit of international
cooperation. And indeed he did a great deal to encourage that kind of
cooperation throughout his career. In this connection I particularly
recall what he said in his presentation at the 1958 Geneva Conference:
"This problem (fusion) seems to have been created especially for the
purpose of developing close cooperation between the scientists and
engineers of various countries, working at this problem according to a
common plan, and continuously exchanging the results of their
calculations, experiments and engineering developments."
I think Soviet scientists can be very proud of the role that Lev
Artsimovich played in hastening the day when fusion power will be
*Work performed under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy by
