One of the instruments used to measure fusion is the “bubble detector” – the more bubbles, the more neutrons (when you’re running DT gas) – proof of fusion.
The ideal product tie-in for this is champagne or any number of other bubbly beverages. Slap a fusion-conscious label on a bottle, with a blurb about fusion, neutron detectors, bubbles – and celebrate fusion every time you drink! Celebrate the quest (before fusion). Celebrate the achievement (milestones along the way – and the ultimate achievement.)
Action Steps / further rationalization:
a) explain the bubble detector more clearly, and for a lay audience;
b) find makers of bubbly beverages, whether that be champagne, sparkling juice, beer or soda;
c) get these beverage manufacturers to create a special label for their beverage “Fusion Fizz”, “Fusion Champagne” to tie in with bubble detection. The label would have a short blurb about the ongoing quest for fusion, and neutron bubble detection.
d) If it’s champagne or other sparkling wines, people can get into the habit of toasting “to the day that net energy from fusion is achieved”
e) and when that day comes – we can toast to its achievement : )
f) Manufacturers can also dedicate a part of their profits to fusion research.
g) different brands can back different fusion projects and say a bit about those projects, raising awareness of the diversity of approaches.
Oh, so many ways to tie fusion in to life. Let the celebration begin!
I, for one, would always buy fusion champagne on special occasions – keep that promise on the horizon.
Action Steps: (Per Jerry Gross)
But because I love to have fun, and certainly do not object to drinking bubbly, I really like your idea to partner with a Champagne producer. I’d put this “invitation” on your web site, and urge your fans to recruit a sparkling wine producer to be part of this promotion.
