Jim,

I really like your article. I tell my non-scientist friends, that the differences between a tokamak and a stellarator are: A large tokamak is EASY to build (and I even mean ITER), but IMPOSSIBLE to operate as designed (due to disruptions). A stellarator is very difficult to build, (even with German engineering), but POSSIBLE to operate as designed.
Furthermore, ITER was a mistake to build before demonstrating a 100% solution to the disruption problem in present tokamaks. Yes, it should be stopped, because it will not be able to perform its stated scientific mission, and is therefore a waste of time and $$$.
