Nuclear Fusion Press Release

by: Jordyn Eason & Scientist Zach

Nuclear Fusion

Nuclear Fusion is a nuclear reaction in which atomic nuclei of low atomic number fuse to form a heavier nucleus with the release of energy.

The Couple Science Lab

During our research and hard work we found that Nuclear Fusion creates Fusion Power which is initially a form on energy. In Fusion Power atomic nuclei fuses to form heavier nucleus. When high energy reactions and atomic nucleus combine some of the mass is converted into energy. While doing our experiment we found that the Formula: E=mc^2 was what helped us the most. We discovered this on December 14, 2015.

How it is formed....

Fusion Power occurs when two or more atomic nuclei are close enough in contact for the strong force that is forcing them together to exceed the electrostatic force.

Is it as Safe as we think???

Fusion Power contain deuterium and tritium which are heavy radioactive isotopes of hydrogen.
