    There are two ways of fusion that we have already done uncontrolled and controlled
    Uncontrolled shall not be in the discussion as that is army stuff
    My idea is somewhat like (spraying a pressure washer but instead of water it is gasoline)
    You control the fire/reaction through the fuel input rate... Kinda like a rocket........
    oooooh idea... more on that in a later post
    My idea is to spray just enough hydrogen into the reaction like you would fuel into a rocket engine... The idea is practically a rocket engine...
    Starting it up however is another problem that needs to be solved
    We could use lasers , magnets or other things
    I however want to try small super hyper Sonic projectiles
    Why... just look at meteorites... When they enter the atmosphere they COMPRESS AND HEAT
    the gas in front. If they go fast enough they could even cause fusion.
    I already know how to get the projectiles to speed
    I just need to build a very very long linear particle accelerator
    and have the pellet impact the heated hydrogen gas in the rocket engine
    To get power out of the contraption I was thinking to put a reverse radiator in the exaust
    And use the coolant to boil water to drive a turbine
    Any ideas to increase the safety of this contraption are appreciated

    Citation needed.

    Doubtful.

    When I learn how to make a cad model I can explain my idea better
    and why I think it might work
    If it doesn't ignite I can try other means of ignition like lasers
    I am open to ideas if you have any

    CAD won't validate your claim nor povide the requested citation.

    You would have to get your "projectiles" to 1% to 10% of the speed of light (about 3x10^6 m/s) to have a hope of seeing fusion. A "hypersonic" projectile is about three orders of magnitude too slow.

    Some idiot even imagined he could cause a black hole like that
