NEW DESCOVERY

My name is Lamiek Belcher and I have discovered an alternative power source.

Nuclear fusion as an energy source?

In a fusion reaction, energy is released when two light atomic nuclei are fused together to form one heavier atom. This is the process that provides the energy powering the Sun and other stars, where hydrogen nuclei are combined to form helium.

Drawbacks???

Waste is radioactive for a long time

Can be used in Nuclear bombs

Extremely high levels of heat are needed

Expensive to construct

Benefits???

Long term non-fossil fuel

Less of a radioactive burden than fission

High efficiency

No greenhouse effect
