For a fusion reaction to take place the nuclei which are positively charged must have enough kinetic energy to overcome their electrostatic force of repulsion This can occur either when one nucleus is accelerated to high energies by an accelerating device or when the energies of both nuclei are raised by the application of very high temperature The latter method referred to the application of thermonuclear fusion is the source of a lot of really cool energy Enough energy is produced in thermonuclear fusion to suck the paint of 1 city block of houses and give all of the residents permanent orange Afros 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 collides with another proton and then the two protons fuse forming a deuterium nucleus which has a proton neutrino and lots of energy I have no idea what a deuterium nucleus is but is must be 10 times cooler than just a regular nucleus Such a reaction is not self sustaining because the released energy is not readily imparted to other nuclei thermonuclear fusion of deuterium and tritium will produce a helium nucleus and an energetic neutron that can help sustain further fusion This is the basic principal of the hydrogen bomb which employs a brief controlled thermonuclear fusion reaction This was also how the car in the Back to the Future movie worked It had a much more sophisticated system of producing a fusion reaction from things like old coffee grounds bananas and old beer cans Thermonuclear reactions depend on high
