    Hope it works.

    The German, Swiss, French consortium got to short spikes of over 81% of break-even.

    The Brits do have some really good engineers.
    Marxists, Socialists, Democrats, Russians, and the legacy media.

    They lie all the time. They lie about everything.

    They know they are lying. We know they are lying. They know we know they are lying.

    They lie anyway. It's what they do.

    and as usual, and the naysayers and impossibalists will be proved wrong, as they have been throughout history. Fusion power is coming, 8 years tops, as is interplanetary and interstellar travel eventually.

    Yeah and IF they screw up we will start the countdown. Since the temperatures are well beyond the ability of anything other than a dump in the artic ocean to control and even then a release of quintillitons of pounds of superheated radioactive water vapor into the atmosphere.

    Say some of of the magnets used to "twist" and separate the the plasma from the vessel fails and it starts to quickly erode the containment vessel, Whacha talkin bout doin Willis?

    Not nearly enough water in the channel just think of the fog tomorrow.

    I say go for it, mankind has existed WAAAAYYYYYY TO LONG anyway, and if it does work its a good way to finalize plans.

    NEO make sure you do the plumbing!!!!! or check it at least!!!

    Very unlikely scenario.

    the usual ignorant bollox from people who dont understand the tech.

    first, the erosion of the containment was found to be caused by using graphite liner, which was absorbing stray neutrons. It was discovered at least a year ago if you switch to titanium liner , that doesn't happen. Titanium doesnt absord neutrons, or anything else either

    Second if the containment field fails, the moment the plasma touches the walls it instantly dissipates and vanishes, because the plasma is highly electrically charged, and the containment vessel is earthed. The amount of actual matter in the plasma is tiny. Any failure of any part of the fusion tokamak causes an instant shutdown. No explosions, nothing to cause leakage or loss

    I think most of the plants that are running in UK are chinese design?
    Are they gonna use another china dome containment system?
    Aren't they shutting down the cooling tower designs?

    So why is unlikely that the magnet system would fail? @Oceander I expect everything to fail when it is subjected to even minimal repetitive stress.
