Twisted Fusion Wendelstein 7-X Reactor Ready to Start

Here's a good example of a Boondoggle presented by mainstream science that poo poos things like cold fusion. 96 years in the making, how many billions of dollars later, now they are about to test this beast. If it takes decades and €1 billion, it must be feasible, right? Not if cost per kilowatt is factored.

It is great artwork, you have to hand them that (if you don't stop to think that the price was paid by taxpayers around the world).

Here's an excerpt from a story from ScienceMag.

Twisted logic (ScienceMag 22 October 2015)

: In a gleaming research lab in Germany's northeastern corner, researchers are preparing to switch on a fusion device called a stellarator, the largest ever built. The €1 billion machine, known as Wendelstein 7-X looks a bit like Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, towed in for repairs after a run-in with the Imperial fleet. Stellarators have long been dark horses in fusion energy research but the Dali-esque devices have many attributes that could make them much better prospects for a commercial fusion power plant than the more popular tokamaks: Once started, stellarators naturally purr along in a steady state and they are not prone to the potentially metal-bending magnetic disruptions that plague tokamaks. Unfortunately they are devilishly hard to build.

Here's a video I found on Facebook, posted by Matt McMahon Cox Proulx:

The Wendelstein 7-X was a nightmare to build, but if it works it may light a new path to fusion energy. (YouTube Oct. 22, 2015)

Compare that to the LENR news below, in simplicity, price, cleanness, and nearness to market. No comparison. Makes this look like bureaucracy boondoggling at its worst, though definitely something to look at.
