Nuclear Fusion For Energy!!

Information and our discovery
Elizabeth Oldham -- I am lead director of the lab called SS count down, our lab here in Vermont, USA has a very well designed team, we all work well together and this is one of the smallest labs with the least employs in the United states. We have been studying nuclear fusion for many years, every since the lab opened in 1999. We have now finally discovered a way to use this nuclear fusion as an energy source. The discovery happened two days ago when we were messing with the lab analysis, then we figured it out. Fusion reactions are high energy reactions that have two lighter atomic nuclei and then you fuse to form a heavier nucleus.
What is Nuclear Fusion? And how is it different from Nuclear Fission?
"The fusion reaction that is easiest to accomplish is the reaction between two hydrogen isotopes: deuterium, extracted from water and tritium, produced during the fusion reaction through contact with lithium." Like stating earlier how we created the fusion, you take two little nuclei to make a big nucleus. Well with fission one large atom is split into two smaller ones. Fusion also deals wit stars such as the sun, while fission does not usually occur in nature.
Fusion has very low fuel inventory in the reactor during operation and to the rapid cooling that extinguishes the fusion reactions should a malfunction occur. Also fusion has very good inherent safety qualities, among which absence of 'chain reaction' and no production of long-lived, highly radio toxic products. A safety caution and procedure would be the worst possible accident which would not be able to breach the confinement barriers. Even when a hypothesis is done that confinement barriers be breached, any accidental radioactive release from a fusion power station in this case cannot reach the level that would require the evacuation of the local community.
Money and debt being a big thing for science and the tax dollars and people wanting to know where their money is going is a need to know. Well The world energy market is approximately $6.5-13 trillion a year. The total world spend on energy research is about 0.5% of this is strikingly low. Fusion research including ITER construction is less than $2 billion a year that's not even 0.05% of the market.
