Maybe I'm asking for too much, but how about accepting "fision"? I know I am spelling it incorrectly, but as I knew "fusion" is only spelled with one "s", I never even thought of spelling "fission" with two "S"s. Stupid English language !!

Syllables can be divided into open and closed syllables. Fusion has an open syllable at the start and the vocal, the sound represented by u is thus pronounced long. The i sound at the start of Fission however is pronounced short, so it takes a closed syllable. To close a syllable in writing you need an extra consonant. Not sure it works fully in English, though it works that way in other Germanic languages. So anyway, for once in English the spelling and pronounciation are linked.
