krenshala wrote:So, are these 7 years to "develop the device" part of the planned time for ITER development/construction, or is this in addition to it?


The DTT targets DEMO, so my understanding is that the schedule of DTT construction is independent of the ITER schedule.

Re: More Helion Energy news....

It is great that Helion Energy has been able to collect 30 MUSD over the past three years. Having their team expanded to 24 persons sounds also good. But unless they really publish something solid there could be a risk that the cash flow dries up if they encounter unexpected problems with the machin...

Re: More Helion Energy news....

The article is interesting with the claim that Helion Energy would have a break even capable device ready this year. Experiments with a new machine will take some time just to understand it and achieve previous results. It would be really nice to have a scientific paper from Helion Energy. If they h...
