I figure millions of dollars, a couple years to get it to work, a couple trials and then it got shelved. I could be wrong. That amount of funding could probably have built a couple hydo electric dams, bridges, paved a hell of a lot of roads, or put a bunch of high school kids through college which would have rewarded USA with productive professionals with great lives who could have put their kids through college and then many people would be paying more taxes and less people would be poor and living off govt subsidies to poverty. Instead, they wasted the money.
