Wow, that's a Q-value of one billionth? Really does put some numbers on how hard it is.

As of 2017, the record for Q is held by the JET reactor in the UK, at 0.67. ITER was originally designed to reach ignition, but is currently designed to reach Q = 10, producing 500 MW of fusion energy with a 50 MW heating system. [wiki]
