Nuclear Fusion vs. Nuclear Fission
Fission is the splitting of a atom.
Fusion is the fusion of two or more atoms together.
Fusion happens in the stars for example the sun.
Fission produces a lot of radioactive particles.
Fusion produces little radioactive particles.
Nuclear fission takes little energy to split two atoms.
Fusion takes a lot of energy to bring two protons together.
It also creates a waste product that we do not dispose of properly.
It is also very hard to maintain and keep under control.
