I want to know how it is that Nuclear Fusion systems can't sustain
fusion longer than the stated operation time given by research laboratories. My thought is that fusion can be achieved simply by constricting the plasma further with stronger magnetic fields. If that's true then why aren't experimenters doing this.
Are there things that the authorities involved aren't telling us? Do fusion accelerators damage space-time?

What do you think? Oh, yeah by the way I know how to build a spacecraft capable of near light speed, cloaking, shielding and object repulsion. This system requires fusion accelerators though.

Because unless you have tremendous pressures (like those found at the cores of stars) the fusion reaction blows the plasma fuel apart, stopping the reaction from continuing. Fusion and fission explosive devices also do the same, but enough of the fissile material gets reacted quickly enough that it produces acceptable energy release.

So the trick that has yet to be found is how to get a fusion reactor to produce enough energy before it blows itself out, that it both does not blow itself UP and has enough energy to restart the reactions again, making it at least self-sustaining.

Great answer James

We need a better understanding of the sub atomic world and how to manipulate it rather than a continuation of that same old practice.
