Mr. Fusion

No. Not this.

A fusion bottle is the heart of a fusion reactor, a magnetic “bottle” in which hot, dense hydrogen plasma is squeezed by magnetic and/or gravitational fields until the nuclei begin to fuse, releasing tremendous amounts of energy in the form of heat and radiation. If a bottle ever fails, the hot plasma expands explosively. Although the release of pressure stops the fusion reaction within milliseconds, the plasma is still hot and dense enough that it will expand with the force of a small nuclear bomb.
