    "...Funded by six nations, including the US, Russia, China, India, Japan, and South Korea, ITER will be the world's largest tokamak fusion device with an estimated cost of ~$24 billion and capable of generating about 500 MW of thermal fusion energy as early as 2025..."


    Wow. 500 whole MW of power, for the low low cost of 50 MW of power to fuel it. This tokamak shit is an outdated BS design that simply cannot scale up efficiently. We need a new wheel, not trying to reshape the same old square into a wheel.

    WTF
