B2's secret weapon:

The TWT discussion that I had was not related to anything on the B2 - don't want any over-zealous FBI angent knocking on my door and arresting me for violation of Title 18... ;-P

>Certain nuclear isotopes are metastable and can undergo stimulated emission, called the Mossbauer effect. Normaly cryogenic cooling is required. But what if the isotope is trapped in a plasma-ion lattice and laser, magneticaly or otherwise electrodynamicaly cooled?
>Metastable nuclear isotopes don't have fission-class energy yields, but are still 10-100 times more powerfull than chemicals.
