Nuclear Fusion as a Energy Source

16.7 Nuclear Fusion Press Release

Dec. 14, 2015

My scientist Dave Herman and I, have been working for the past 4 years to figure out to use nuclear fusion as a energy source. We came to find that there are multiple ways to produce nuclear reactions, but the two leading methods today are with lasers and with magnets. We tested this information to be true, by setting up a lab where energy could be tested to see how much transferred from both laser and magnets.

How nuclear fusion produces energy vs. nuclear fission

Both fission and fusion are nuclear reactions that produce energy, but the applications are not the same. Fission is the splitting of a heavy, unstable nucleus into two lighter nuclei, and fusion is the process where two light nuclei combine together releasing vast amounts of energy. Fission is used in nuclear power reactors since it can be controlled, while fusion is not utilized to produce power since the reaction is not easily controlled and is expensive to create the needed conditions for a fusion reaction. Research continues into ways to better harness the power of fusion, but research is in experimental stages. While different, the two processes have an important role in the past, present and future of energy creation.

Safety concerns

Nuclear Fusion can cause the possibility of a fuel melt down, release of tritium, and radioactive waste.

Economic Impact

This discovery can bring a big impact causing no energy limitations, no excess greenhouse gases. This discovery also provides a much cheaper source for energy that more people can afford.
