This one isn't "non-fission" by the strictest meaning. But it does only require, e.g., 0.7 g of Pu to get you a 12 t
yield, if you have enough other stuff (e.g., antiprotons) to produce a flood of neutrons. The antiprotons used in this
case are a distinct category from the more general "antimatter" case.
