Transcript of Fusion Funballs

What Is Fusion Energy? Fusion energy (if properly harnessed) would benefit not only Seward Alaska, but most places on the face of the earth! It is the power that is generated by nuclear fusion reactions.
A well-known example of a fusion reaction would be two atoms of hydrogen fusing together to create a helium atom.
Fusion would be considered nuclear energy. How Does Fusion Work? Fusion only happens when the hydrogen atoms are heated at over 100 million degrees, so they can fuse and stick together long enough for fusion to occur.
When the nuclei collide, they produce heat, and scientists are trying to use this heat to produce electricity
If nuclear fusion were successful, it would produce a clean, safe and abundant energy supply for the world. Advantages What Are Challenges, Hazards, & Drawbacks? There could be accidental release of the elements that are to be combined within the reactors.
Nuclear fusion needs a precisely-controlled temperature, pressure and magnetic field to occur.
The likelihood of accidental releases cannot be fully estimated yet. FUSION IS...? SO WHAT CAN
IN THE NEAR FUTURE? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gRnezJNFro&edufilter=xddldvXcvYZfpzuo9QnDBw Check out Michio Kaku as he explains fusion energy benefits for us in the near future. http://fusioned.gat.com/what_is_fusion.html
