The downside? It'll take billions of pounds, and more than three decades, to find out.


comments anyone?

The sun isn't a toroid.

Heh.

Myself, I see an innumerable company of PhDs crying “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Tokamak.”

"... the Spherical Tokamak", perhaps?

There is a [man-made] spherical toakamak design, of course, and who's to say that the Sun isn't one inside.

I've proposed that ball lightning is a self-confining toroidal discharge that is also rotating very quickly on two major axes. That'd look like a ball but would still satisfy the 'hairy ball' condition. Maybe you'll find rotating toroids in the sun.....

To anyone that says 'no it isn't', I say 'go to the Sun and drill down 500,000 miles to the fusion core to prove the idea false!!!.... :lol:
