Nuclear Fusion Space Propulsion

Nuclear fusion space propulsion presentation from 2005

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.

Here is a 6 page overview of the Star Thrust Experiment

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.
