Nuclear Fusion

  1. Energy From Fusion (CBS News)
      Provides a summary of a program to generate energy from fusion. 04-12

  1. How to Make a Star (National Ignition Facility)
      "In this process the capsule and its deuterium-tritium (D-T) fuel will be compressed to a density 100 times that of solid lead, and heated to more than 100 million degrees Celsius hotter than the center of the sun. These conditions are just those required to initiate thermonuclear fusion, the energy source of stars." 05-09

  2. The World's First Controlled Thermonuclear Reaction (National Ignition Facility)
      "The world's largest and highest-energy laser was certified to operate by the U.S. Department of Energy on March 27, 2009. In 2010, NIF will focus the intense energy of 192 giant laser beams on a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel fusing, or igniting, the hydrogen atoms' nuclei in the world's first controlled thermonuclear reaction. This is the same fusion energy process that makes stars shine and provides the life-giving energy of the sun." 05-09
