Thankyou.
I am not a nuclear physicist, but play one on the internet.

I have to admit that I have a bit of a weak spot for Dennis Whyte's ARC, even though it is a Tokamak. But Whyte and his MIT team are doing a really good job at making Tokamaks look more attractive than they used to. Tokamak Energy is benefiting greatly from Whyte's work. Plus, I have to say that Whyte seems like a rather likable fellow, who is not bullish about Tokamaks and frequently gives nods to the other confinement concepts in his presentations, talks and panel discussions.
