    Which fusion technologies can be most easily weaponized to serve as neutron beam systems? My guess is Focus Fusion with neutronic fusion could be used to disable satellites. Sadly, weapons research is often the way to get government funding, although results may be withheld from public use for years.

    I’ve been so exicited by the prospect of weaponised plasmoids.
    For the last 2 years I’ve chased my dog – Ben – round the house with a tennis racket, pretending its a handheld dense plasma focus weapon. I line up Ben in the cross hair and fire an electron beam at him. The electrons get inside Ben and form plasmoids, which then crush his oxygen, hydrogen, carbon and nitrogen ions and fuse them into heavier elements such as iron. Ben turns into a lump of fused dense metal. Bit like the gun off ‘Another World’ ( ‘Out of This World’ in the US ).

    Mum tells me off, but I tell her that every day Eric and his team are one step closer to making this a reality.
