jack's nuclear fusion energy source
May 3, 2016 Jackson's lab made nuclear fusion energy source
How does it work?
the reaction between two hydrogen isotopes: deuterium, extracted from water and tritium, produced during the fusion reaction through contact with lithium. When deuterium and tritium nuclei fuse, they form a helium nucleus, a neutron and a lot of energy. like Nuclear fission they both are an energy source, but Fission at nuclear power plants, the heat to make the steam is created when uranium atoms split
But is nuclear fusion safe?
YES! it is safe, sustainable, and low carbon!
what's it like in the economy?
Nuclear fusion mimics the reactions that occur in the sun to create safe, clean nuclear energy. Sound like hot air? Not according to a leading US venture capitalist who believe it will become economically viable within several years.
