I have been alternating between Polywell and BFR. Bussard Fusion Reactor. I did a post on it a while back. (maybe a year ago).

I call our goal pBj. Protons - Boron - Joules.

To error is human... and I'm very human.

I detest the ambiguity of "Nuclear Reactor" because it does not distinguish between say, an RBMK and a BFR: they are both "Nuclear Reactors."

Unfortunately "Bussard Reactor" and "BFR" both have the same problem. They both have the word "Reactor" in them; and I suspect that "Reactor" would not do well on a marketing survey word association test. (Can you say the "N" word?)

Polywell is not the best word either - from a PR standpoint (agreed that it does not roll off the tongue), but it DOES provoke a question, "What the heck is a polywell?" And that is MUCH better than having people associate it immediately with the old Neutron Fission Reactors. Calling it a Polywell gives us Polywell evangelists an opportunity to explain how it works, but using the "reactor" word (or worse) gives other people the opportunity to take the attitude, "It's nuclear, it's evil, and that's all I want to know."
