    Could you encase the reactor in Mercury and transmute it with ‘wasted neutrons’ into Gold?
    It would be a shiny little biproduct.

    Er… did you mean to put this under another category? This is the aneutronic thread 🙂

    And as the hydrogen-boron fusion reaction is aneutronic (meaning that less than 0.2% of the reaction energy is carried by neutrons) then there just wouldn’t be enough neutrons generated from an FF unit to make much of anything into anything else… and that’s one of its strong points!

    Yes. I should have put it under a different thread.

    Thanks.
