BBC In Our Time With Melvyn Bragg: Nuclear Fusion

Nuclear fusion is the process that powers stars. In the 1920s physicists predicted that it might be possible to generate huge amounts of energy by fusing atomic nuclei together, a reaction requiring enormous temperatures and pressures. Scientists have achieved fusion in the laboratory and today it is seen as a possible future source of limitless …

Steve Cowley: Inside ITER “Preparing to Burn”

Nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei collide and fuse to form a new type of atomic nucleus. Compared to that of nuclear fission where nuclear nuclei slip in collisions, used in Nuclear powerplats and atom fission bombs. Nuclear fusion is what provides and sustains life on Earth. Since …
