Switch to Fusion Power!
Still using an old antimatter drive?
Dangerous and Expensive
That antimatter thermal rocket engine is old technology! It's inconvenient,
dangerous, and expensive to run. We all know antimatter fuel is one of the
largest operating costs of a spaceship. But it's also hard to find on some
worlds, sometimes in short supply, or even impossible to get. Worst of all,
an antimatter explosion on board a ship invariably destroys the whole ship.
Remember the Shenandoah and the Akron tragedies?
With the latest increases in nuclear fusion efficiency and advanced
manufacturing techniques, you can upgrade your aging antimatter engine to
a brand new nuclear fusion power plant and rocket motor, for a fraction of
the cost of a new ship.
Safe and Cheap
The latest nuclear fusion power plants from Harungard
Industries are among the most efficient commercially available
anywhere, and our prices are more than competitive. Nuclear fusion is
safe - on the rare chance that anything goes
wrong, the plant simply shuts down. No explosions, no radiation. A
containment breach stops the fusion process almost instantaneously.
Nuclear fusion is cheap - our plants literally run on
water. An in-built electrolysis cell extracts hydrogen fuel from
ordinary water, producing useful, clean, pure oxygen as a by-product!
Considering the cost of antimatter fuel, a Harungard
Industries Nuclear Fusion Power Plant pays for itself many
times over in the first year of operation. Not to mention the safety
and convenience factors! You can't afford not to uprade your ship's
engines right away.
