ITER will hopefully come online sometime during the next decade.

It sure would be nice it JET or someone else could achieve break even in a few years. That would restore credibility to fusion as an energy option and hopefully create more opportunities both for traditional and non-traditional fusion research and development worldwide.

A new official ITER schedule is to be produced after the summer. Then we will see the new dates.

The issue with the previous JET record runs was the first wall which picked up too much tritium. This problem had to be understood and solved for ITER and now the same first wall has been used on JET, which is why it might be possible to achieve better JET performance by using more heating power and modes of operation not previously available.

Thanks, let's wait and see.
A new timeline within 2015 will anyhow beat my expectations and mean that Bigot is moving faster than his predecessors.

Prestonbarrows, my opinion is the same as your on all what you said, except your last paragraph.
I believe that actual research going on in several smaller fusion companies will show us a viable road to fusion before end of this decade even with our actual technological level. Of course "viable" is not same as "profitable", but I feel optimistic also on that.
