I don't see fusion as working well with the hard science "Domed Mars" setting I want. (Fusion is too Ultra-Tech for my tastes here.) And I'm sure you meant "planet" or "celestial body" as a heat sink because ships still need radiators in a hard science setting. BTW what would the IR Sig of an underground fission reactor be?
