Introduction

Hello, my name is Noah Lyons and I have been working on a lab about Nuclear Fusion. Nuclear Fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei come very close and then collide at a high speed and join to form a new nucleus.

Safety Concerns

Here are a couple of concerns with using Nuclear Fusion:

1. There could be more radioactivity produced then some scientists say.

2. Nuclear Fusion produces neutrons, this leads to neutronic radiation.

Economic Standpoint

1. Cost is not that big of a deal

2. Outlook is better long term than short

3. Would challenge other forms of generators
