Engineering is the art of making what you want from what you can get at a profit.

Wow, astronomers have gotten lucky twice in one month! I hope they can convince a lot of people we need more instruments in space so we can stay lucky.

The scale is just mind boggling:

Impressive demonstration of the instability of concave fields.

After seeing that I can't imagine how can they possibly make a Tokamak work.

In a PW all those mass ejections become mass injections.
