Ingredients to a Fusion Reaction
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 ap...

A Look at Lightning and How It Discharges Static Electricity
Lightning
Lightning is a discharge of static electricity in the atmosphere, which causes a
bright flash of light. When lighting goes through the air, it heats the air to
degrees hotter than the sun's surface about 50,000 degrees fahrenheit. This
heating causes the air to expand and contract. This causes the sound called
thu...

Theories Explaining the Release of Meltwater That Have Accumulated Beneath Melting Ice Sheets
Since 1983, several investigators have developed a theory of due to the release of meltwater that is believed to have accumulated beneath melting ice sheets. The proposed catastrophic sheet floods, as wide as the drumlin fields, formed the drumlins and related streamlined landforms, such as flutings, over wide areas. So-cal...
