Fusion and Fusion propulsion

This was written up nearly a year ago at NextBigFuture.  The link provided doesn't work anymore.  It combines MHD Airbreathing with IEC Fusion (polywell).  Here's a link to the discussion of fusion propulsion.

Well, back one moment to this idea of muon catalyzed fusion. It doesn't appear to be a likely candidate for rocket propulsion though. It seems that you need a mechanism for making the muons and that doesn't seem likely in space.

I had a speculation yesterday about muons being used is Rossi -Focardi experiments. Based upon factors like this, it doesn't appear likely.
