Update: Construction of ST40 is progressing well

After first plasma at the end of April and tests of the Merging Compression coils in May, the large toroidal field coils were added to the machine. Here are some images of the toroidal field coils being put into place, and of the ST40 with the whole toroidal field assembly in place.
