actually i was refering to the hype that was caused by Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann in March 1989. sure fusion/plasma still has high hopes today (princeton's PPPL lab, some military/weapons-based research at lanl(?)) - but the billions were poured to the 'hot' fusion. sorry for the mix up

Edit: regarding the major. my own physics advisor told me that i probably wont find a job after i graduate, unless i go for a ph.d or masters to work in government sector.. but even with a bs degree in engineering, id be able to get a decent job (~50K +). its really a sad picture.. but then again you dont get into physics for profit these days
