The ITER Organisation just came out, and embarked on a 35 years project to build the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) in Cadarache, South of France. Its construction costs are estimated at €5 billion over 10 years, the reactor ETA being 2016.

Meanwhile, a US teen fires up a fusion reactor in the basement of his parents with bits and pieces bought on the internet and blagged from manufacturers at a discount.

Go figure ;-).
