The graphs below show why achieving 100 Kev using dense plasma focus fusion by Lawrenceville Plasma Physics would be such a huge deal. 100 Kev opens up all of the fusion reactions.
Deuterium – Helium3 used for field reversed configuration propulsion could achieve 1,000,000 ISP. This is an exhaust velocity of 9800 km/second. About 3% of lightspeed.
