Fusor powered toster... I like that
Idea. Is it patented?

With the fusor as neutron source, I like
the idea of bombarding materials to become radio
active (a short halflife, less than 1 year) and
use that as heat source for a regular power
plant. The problem with fission is the
long half life and the materials make great

>Fusion just won't be there when we need it 20 years from now, I predict. Especially if our old tattered, worn out and multi-punched fusion dance cards and moonlit promises by prior fusioneers are any indicator.

The only thing more warn out is EASY space access
from NASA.
