Don't know, the Tokamak has been vacuuming off enough funding 
and brain resources, but the timing of Bussard's alleged 
breakthrough has been awfully convenient.

If it's so easy and cheap we'll know soon enough.

In general, the fusion problem has been solved gigayears
ago. It's called a star. What is needed is designing an 
antenna cheap enough -- preferrably, one that's autoinstalling,
like trees.
