Nuclear Fusion

by: Rachel Miller

We are live in Raleigh, North Carolina to look at how Nuclear Fusion is now a way to create energy. I am Rachel Miller and good morning, it is a very lovely Tuesday morning, it is December 15, 2015. Recently, it has been discovered that Nuclear Fusion is well on its way to be a top energy source. Nuclear Fusion also creates heat which can be converted into thermal energy.

Nuclear fusion is much more safe than fission because fusion does not release harmful radiation into the air. Fission waste is radioactive for 80 million years while fusion is only for 50-100 years. Steam turbines is a heat engine that produces 80% of the world's electricity. Nuclear is a very possible way to get energy through heat for a long time but eventually it will not be an option.
