perhaps by heating the fuel to a plasma level while simultaeounsly crushing it with pressure from the cannon ball idea or with lasers, you would have double the shot at detonating it.It has been tried, with 192 lasers aimed into a spherical chamber.
Do you think you could focus your cannonballs down to < 1mm diameter?
- Or achieve a density 100 times greater than lead?
To produce steady power, you would want many fusion pulses per second.
- So far, they are struggling to generate more than a couple of pulses per day.
- But it is still an interesting research tool.
