Nuclear fusion is the ultimate power source, as it takes hydrogen (the most abundant element in the universe) and produces power and helium (a gas we are running short of). Rocky Giarratano, I don’t think the top headline is indicative of what the article is about? Never underestimate a woman who understands football and loves Ohio State Buckeyes shirt. There is no big atom (uranium) that gets broken up (creating unstable/radioactive particles). So that’s not an issue. Further, there’s no meltdown possibility- when the fusion reactor stops (or malfunctions), that’s it. Much safer. Jake Rock I think many people fail to understand that under the proper procedure, regulation, and infrastructure and not cutting corners. that nuclear power is actually quite safe. When handled professionally and adeptly the atom provides massive energy with relatively low emission.

Christopher Marc Andrew, I understand radioactive waste would not be a concern or equivalent of solar panels being hot to touch. No barrels buried in old mines. Andrew Robinson Nah. Never underestimate a woman who understands football and loves Ohio State Buckeyes shirt. Kyle Krebs If a fusion reactor breaks down, the worst-case scenario is that it stops working. If a fission reactor (what we currently use) stops working, you have a very big problem. The amount of radioactive waste emitted by a fusion reactor would be much, much less than a typical fission reactor produces now, and the radioactive waste is not high yield and long-lasting. A fusion reactor produces no carbon emissions. To even produce carbon, you would need a MASSIVE reactor, capable of producing at least 8 times more energy than our Sun produces in its lifetime.
