Here we go, game on. One little improvement after another, before long you’ve got something real. This one improvement will quickly lead to more research and more improvements, and practical fusion will be a thing before we know it. I didn’t think I’d live to see it but it sure looks likely at this point.

There's constant press about this because it makes political sense, we're still decades away from this being a reality, the scientists themselves are incentivised to make it sound closer than it is so that they can continue to secure funding.

The truth is that no experimnent has ever got near to outputting the same levels of energy that was put in.
