No.

Energy in: 1700000 J
Energy out: 8000 J

8000/1700000 = 0.0047

Didn't they finally own a few months ago that they don't expect to ever achieve what they set out to?

I think the use of the NIH facility to cook burgers will be more economical ($ loss per "shot" will be lower). Maybe by the end of this year General Fusion will put all these boondoggle government projects into history's dust bin and save us some serious cash. Government managed projects don't usually pass the burger test.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.
