I just wanted to say I admit I even wrote my own D&D style stories. I think they were pretty good!
Have you looked at Rust as a programming language?
Are ITER's goals technically feasible?
to do that requires a commitment something like that of the Manhattan Project or the Apollo program, and tokamak fusion hasn't had that kind of commitment. ITER has had some PR indicating that it is supposed to be that kind of commitment, but it isn't.
One of them being that there is no likely strategic military advantage for a nation to go it alone,it only makes sense in the context of international co-operation.So there are reasons why fusion research has not been an obvious candidate for a Manhattan Project/Apollo commitment the way those previous efforts were.
