If this is probable:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4270297.stm then 'Stars in a Jar' would be the ultimate weapon, clean thorough and totally effective. Lets say the evidence existed from the LAN 'newmexico' database, and this mysteriously vanished along with other relevant papers detailing experimental setup and such. If the process becomes mainstream, and Fusion of this type can be created, the the 'Star' could be made to go Supernova? Unlike the fission 'China-Syndrome' catastrophe, a Star that was created with the sole purpose to invoke a Supernova Explosive devise, could theoretically be used to Terrorise any civilization within at least 4 to 5 lightyears from the Product. Is this feasable? can a 'Star_in_a_jar' be the Ultimate 'blackmail' weapon?
