ITER (originally the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is the international research and engineering project which is currently building the world's largest and most advanced experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor and will be constructed in Europe, at Cadarache in the south of France. The ITER tokamak aims to make the long awaited transition from today's studies of plasma physics to full scale electricity-producing fusion power plants. The project's members are the European Union, Japan, China, the United States, South Korea, India and Russia. The fusion reactor itself has been designed to produce 500 MW of output power for 50 MW of input power, or ten times the amount of energy put in.

Okay for all the religious idiots in the comments preaching about 'Nuclear is not the way forward because we will blow up earth'. In a tokamak fusion device, the quantity of fuel present in the vessel at any one time is sufficient for a few-seconds burn only. It is difficult to reach and maintain the precise conditions necessary for fusion; any disruption in these conditions and the plasma cools within seconds and the reaction stops, much in the same way that a gas burner is extinguished when the fuel tap is turned off. The fusion process is inherently safe; there is no danger of run-away reaction or explosion. Further more it creates no radio-active waste. And even if the water coolant failed the containment vessel can with stand the plasma until the reactor is shut down. There is no way anything can go wrong. Its clean, its safe and it will make the earth a better place. Now fuck off.

Just let loose the suppressed technology, Krishna is everything, personally or energetically. Respect all life. Love God & love one another. From goodness comes perfect knowledge by submissive, aural perception w/in & w/out. We could have an exciting, fun world in harmony with Vastu, Light of Prakash on and on. Know thyself, & peak perfection by true loving exchange with God, eternal & omnipresent; so, as with the moon, according to time & place, appears differently, as well as being known by different Names. God is not a psycho-fanatic. It's time to reawaken to our true, unconditioned self, as the knowledge based blissful, eternal spirit-souls that have a great life, just beyond the illusioned, ego. For the love of God try chanting Hare Krishna. It's free and may free you, one and all.

Nuclear is not allowed and not permitted anymore on planet Earth, if you go on with nuclear you will have to leave forever our planet (one way trip). The future of Earth is not nuclear.

Energy is not the only resource. There are just too many people on this earth to be sustained long term. Let alone if the population keeps growing. By all means, develop clean energy but if we don't get rid of 90% of the population it's useless.

Le coût financier des installations de recherche se chiffre en milliards d’euros sur plusieurs décennies. Ce coût est donc très important pour des bénéfices potentiels éloignés dans le temps. L’investissement dans le programme ITER a par exemple été évalué initialement à 5 milliards d’euros . Selon les dernières estimations du programme en 2012, le coût prévisionnel de construction de la machine avoisinerait maintenant 13 milliards d’euros . Par ailleurs, les coûts de production de l’énergie de fusion restent une inconnue tant que le procédé n’aura pas atteint une maturité scientifique et technologique.    Le réacteur est actuellement en construction. En tant que réacteur de recherche, ITER ne produira pas d’électricité,  seulement de la chaleur et de la vapeur.  sa fait chère le mètre cube de vapeur  non !!! STOP ITER

ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is the international pseudoscientific project. See: Chinese Thermonuclear Sun and Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory. Scientists want to imitate physical processes inside the Sun. The principles of thermonuclear fusion were formulated over 50 years ago. However, scientists faced enormous problems as they tried to ignite and control thermonuclear plasma. Ensuring a clean and plentiful supply of energy is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Efficient plasma confinement is the main challenge that has to be solved on the way towards thermonuclear suns that will work like miniature stars on Earth. US Thermonuclear Sun-2018 (the Greatest Source of Electricity) will beat petroleum, wheeled vehicles, power stations, stellarators and tokamaks (machines with magnetic plasma confinement). Stellarators and tokamaks are failed devices-1950-2014. Magnetic fields cannot control hot plasma because magnetic fields are polar fields with a North and South polarity; gravitational fields have no polarity at all. The gravitational forces in the stars compress matter, mostly hydrogen, up to very large densities and temperatures at the star-centers. US Thermonuclear Sun-2018 will eat thermonuclear fuel by special artillery (special guns will shoot synchronously, towards each other). Special artillery will compress sun-center; will deliver LUNAR helium-3, deuterium, tritium and lithium deuteride to sun-center. The People's Republic of China has landed its first robotic lander on the Moon. Chinese Lunar Robots will extract lunar helium-3. The People's Republic of China can create Chinese Thermonuclear Sun within Chinese granite quarry. Chinese nuclear artillery will initiate the work of Chinese Thermonuclear Sun. The creation of special artillery is the most difficult problem-2014-2018. Special artillery must imitate gravitational field of star. Cancer is now the leading cause of death in the People's Republic of China. Chinese scientists ignored and ignore (2013-2006=7) molecular biological, genetic and clinical aspects of the Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory (Theory from The Old Testament; Iron Conception). Was the Cultural Revolution good or bad? Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory will beat cancer and cancer-research-money. Any cancer is caused by iron-related genes (genes involved in iron metabolism / hereditary cancers) and iron-related events (when excess iron accumulates in the cells, tissues, and organs due to various causes / sporadic cancers). Any cancer is a subtle iron disease. There is an epidemic of cancer today. Most people continue to view cancer as a form of genetic lottery. In reality, cancer is a form of iron lottery. Ceramic needles can suppress any tumors and large metastases; can enter anti-iron solution [sulfur (2%) + olive oil (98%); 36.6C - 39.0C] to tumors and large metastases. Anti-iron slow blood loss (even 75%) [hemoglobin control], anti-iron goat milk diet and anti-iron drinking water containing hydrogen sulfide can neutralize any micro-metastases and isolated tumor cells.  http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/thermonuclear  ;  https://plus.google.com/107119198688120551734/posts  ;  http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/37661/title/Different-Cancers--Same-Mutations/  ;  http://voices.yahoo.com/cancer-theories-explanations-1746827.html?cat=70  ;  http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  http://bg.ru/society/na_smert_segalovicha_umer_russkij_da_vinchi-18900/  ;  ITER - nuclear fusion power plant prototype HD  ;  YouTube & Facebook & Google & Vadim Shapoval

after fusion is wormhole reactor :D
