So the nucleus of the atoms 1-8 become less dense each time they fuse.
What about that idea ?
Maybe if you had like 1,000 cannons and the cannonballs crash at the center,just think of it eventually you would get fusion with that technique, by blasting each ball into a lever it could pull up on a container to provide pressure.
Only if they were moving much, much faster than typical cannonballs. They would have to have enough energy to completely vaporize into a multi-million degree plasma upon impact.
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.

Substance Autoignition...Hydrogen 536 °C (997 °F)
Why do you think the temperature at which something catches fire in air is remotely relevant?
They could heat the fuel up to a temperture just before it catches fire, this would reduce the amount of fission you would need to use to achieve fusion because their would already be heat enegy and pressure in the fuel instead of chilled like you read about.

Do you see what I'm saying
Why don't you see us saying that it will not work (and, indeed, that it did not work the first time someone shot a cannon at a wall)?Why do you insist on ignoring facts?
It would have to work at some point.
rather then just placing the explosive in the system which would be ineffeicient.
Nobody is saying that you can start a fusion reaction with a conventional explosive. Efficiency isn the problem here.It just isn't hot enough.There isn't enough energy packed into the material.
