Moebius: When will you have the ten megawatt commercial prototypes ready for the Polywell?
Green: Perhaps 5 years, if you continue the current level of funding.
Moebius: How much would you need to have it ready in 6 months?
Green: Very funny. Say 30 billion dollars.
Moebius: Will you take a check?

No, say no!

That's the tax-payer's money you are throwing around there!

Now, if he had asked "Can you cash ITER's check?", then maybe... :twisted:

$30 billion would probably kill the project.

$1 billion should be more than enough to get the speed up to Warp 7. And it will still take a year.
