The Fusion Lab

Hello, I am Macie from the Fusion Lab and a new discovery of nuclear fusion being used as an energy source has just been made.

What is nuclear fusion?

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

Fission v. Fusion

Fission is the splitting of atoms and fusion is the joining of atoms.

Concerns About Fusion

-Possibility of a fuel melt down

-Radioactive waste may be produced

-Possible release of tritium

Economic Impact

  • No energy limitations, full access without an excess of greenhouse gases
  • Much cheaper
  • This would lead to cheaper cost of energy
  • More people would be able to afford or access the energy
