"But the first experiments capable of validating fusion for power
 would not come until the end of 2025, five years later than the
 date set when the ITER agreement was signed in 2006."

"The new scheme, known as 'Scenario 1' to ITER insiders, will be
 discussed on 17-18 June in Mito, Japan," ... "It is expected to be
 approved at a council meeting in November."

"Construction costs are likely to double from the 5-billion EUR
 (US$7-billion) estimate provided by the project in 2006, as a
 result of rises in the price of raw materials, gaps in the original
 design, and an unanticipated increase in staffing to manage
 procurement. The cost of ITER's operations phase, another 5 billion
 EUR over 20 years, may also rise."

"In fact, the ultimate cost of ITER may never be known. Because 90%
 of the project will be managed directly by individual member states,
 the central organization has no way of gauging how much is being
