The demo unit is to be 7 meters in diameter and 10 meters tall. (the test unit that they are working on is 1 meter diameter by 2 meters tall) So fairly large (roughly the size of a compact fission reactor that you could see on a naval vessel) but still smaller than a tokamak by a significant amount.

Yes, lets teach our kids that war is always bad, that there is no good reason (german) for war. That a kind human being, would never unjustly war upon people.

I like that idea, hey there must be a shortage of "C" level executives since they make so much, lets H-1B a bunch of them in from 3rd world companies. We should be able to drop the median CEO salary from ~500 times the average employee to ~50 times the average employee.
