A scientist that worked on both fission and fusion rockets in the 1960s says that particles exit a fusion rocket with 10 million times the energy of particles from a chemical rocket. Two fusion rockets were built and tested in competing projects but never deployed, and with the fusion tocket at that time it was only design work until the project was canceled. And these things are to be used only in space, not for lifting to LEO. Lithium is sometimes used in fusion, but dilithium is supposed to be lithium and tellurium.
