Here lies the critical path!

Assuming we want to use the p-11B reaction, boys and girls, someone needs to be working on a way to adapt this to a BFR, right now, not tomorrow or the next day.

Golly gee! This is a big son-of-a-gun! Oh, and on the ribbons, don't talk to me about anything other than stainless steel or woven graphite. Also, think MINERAL OIL, not water for a coolant. Also think, "Small is beautiful. Small is beautiful. Small is beautiful. Small is beautiful."

Holy Brobdingnag, Laputa!

REMEMBER, its a mezely 12% difference in MAGRID size between a 90% efficient direct conversion and a 45% thermal. Lets make it work FIRST, then argue generation.

Consider the headlines you would like to see from the first prototype:

Fusion a success!

vs:


Fusion a success! Direct conversion fails.

There is also the question of keeping the initial prototypes as simple as possible.
