The magnetic-mirror reactor concept has evolved from a simple, spherical-shaped plasma, confined in a magnetic field produced by a baseball or yin-yang coil set, to multiple-cell configurations called tandem mirrors. During its evolution the reactor concept has become more practical in terms of producing a saleable commodity. Specifically, the market for this fusion energy is predicted to be for fissile fuel for fission reactors, high-temperature heat for synthetic fuels to replace petroleum and fossile fuels, and electricity. In fact, considerably more revenues may result from the sale of fissile fuel and somewhat more from high-temperature heat than from electricity.
