    What are projects about nuclear controlled fusion reactor to achieve Q > 1, or possibly obtain Q > 1.

    You have asked this in another thread, why are you making another thread?

    I think a thermonuclear bomb would qualify as having Q greater than one, but that is not controlled as well as anyone would like.

    The goal of ITER is to achieve a Q = 10, to have a high enough thermal efficiency for a power plant design.
