And I think a lot of scientists should make an effort to improve the photos they make from their devices. For instance, look at this picture from ASDEX-Upgrade:
Does it make you dream? Personally, I do not. But even for small experiments, it would be better to have high-quality shootings. It is not only a question of promotion but also to make people dream.
