Nuclear FusionFor a fusion reaction to take place the nuclei which are positivelycharged must have enough kinetic energy to overcome their electrostaticforce of repulsion This can occur either when one nucleus isaccelerated to high energies by an accelerating device or when theenergies of both nuclei are raised by the application of very hightemperature The latter method referred to the application ofthermonuclear fusion is the source of a lot of really cool energy Enough energy is produced in thermonuclear fusion to suck the paint of 1city block of houses and give all of the residents permanent orangeAfros The sun is a example of thermonuclear fusion in nature If I was a atom I could only wish to be in a thermonuclear reaction Thermonuclear reactions occur when a proton is accelerated and collideswith another proton and then the two protons fuse forming a deuteriumnucleus which has a proton neutrino and lots of energy I have no ideawhat a deuterium nucleus is but is must be 10 times cooler than just aregular nucleus Such a reaction is not self sustaining because thereleased energy is not readily imparted to other nuclei thermonuclearfusion of deuterium and tritium will produce a helium nucleus and anenergetic neutron that can help sustain further fusion This is thebasic principal of the hydrogen bomb which employs a brief controlledthermonuclear fusion reaction This was also how the car in the Back tothe Future movie worked It had a much more sophisticated system ofproducing a fusion reaction from things like old coffee groundsbananas and old beer cans Thermonuclear reactions depend on highenergies and the possibility of a low-temperature nuclear fusion hasgenerally been discounted Little does the scientific community knowabout my experiments I have produced cold fusion in my basement withthings like stale bread milk peanut butter and flat Pepsi I havebeen able to produce a ten-megaton reaction which as little as asaltine cracker and some grass clippings But enough about mydiscoveries Early in 1989 two electrochemists startled
