Hi I am scientist Krystyna! Recently in my lab I have discovered a very interesting thing. Nuclear Fusion! Nuclear fusion is the process where two light nuclei combine together releasing vast amounts of energy. When these nuclei collide they provide me with energy! Nuclear fusion and fission both deal with using nuclei. But..Nuclear Fission is the process of taking them apart, which is the opposite of nuclear fusion. Now let me list some safety concerns and precautions for using the method nuclear fusion. Their is a possibility of a fuel melt down, radioactive waste and possible release of tritium. The economic impact would be that it is a lot cheaper, this would lead to cheaper cost of energy, more people would be able to afford the energy and no energy limitations.
