Nuclear Fusion


Really Dumb



Nuclear Fusion
Nuclear Fusion is a process that produces energy. It happens when two atoms join together and form a bigger atom. This process gives off a lot of energy. It’s like when two pieces of firewood are put together and burned—the result is more heat and light than just one piece of wood. A fun fact about Nuclear Fusion is that it is the same process that powers the sun and stars. All the heat and light we feel and see from the sun is coming from Nuclear Fusion! Nuclear Fusion is a very powerful and efficient way of producing energy. It produces no pollution and releases no greenhouse gases, so it’s a great way of making energy without hurting the environment. Scientists are even trying to figure out how to use Nuclear Fusion here on Earth to create electricity.
