I was thinking it would have to be an incredibly hazardous amount of radioisotope to get a usable amount of energy...but then I suppose the power level would not be controllable through chain-reaction, and you may as well be dealing with fusion at that point.
Thanks for the insight Rich.

My experience with nuclear fusion is minimal though I have done some research on it and I know this idea is technically neutron capture, not fusion buuuuuttt.... I was wondering if neutron absorption of boron would be a feasible way to produce energy. I couldn't find anything relating to this topic,...
