Anyone who allready subscribed to these video teaching lessons at EPFL - EDX?
Content is quite demanding, but it gives a very good view about the details and requirements behind the fusion process.

Another nice source of scientific news: CERNCOURIER

There seems to be a free subscription available (printed version of the magazin!) for member states. So maybe you can get one at: cern.courier@cern.ch

That's the brand new one:

Thanks to Philipp, I can point you to an excellent video about the basics of fusion, confinement theory, plasma physics and finally about the Wendelstein 7X experiment itself.
It can be used to get a short and very professional overview about the current status in fusion.
