Thought that was all dead and gone, a blast from the past

Got a UK version too, (edit:being built in USA)

The subject matter seems to attract a lot of dreamers and hopefuls, I get the impression that the final solution will be to cheat nature, not mimic nature

Tens of million degrees, not 100s, I believe. Carp reporting, probably.

The basic problem remains , input 100's MW , output 100'sMW + 100W.

ITER is aiming for 150 million degrees. JET is probably similar (it is over 25 years since I worked there...). The point of ITER is to scale up the JET reactor to get closer to a power reactor, i.e. one that can run for months and produce significantly more power than it uses. I am not sure how making a smaller tokamak fits in with that progression.

It ticked me that the in joke about fusion is that it is still 30 years away.
