Latest Nuclear fusion Stories
For some stellar objects, the final phase before or instead of collapsing into a black hole may be what a group of physicists is calling an electroweak star.
A new class of supernova was discovered by scientists at Berkeley and may be the first example of a new type of exploding star.
Experiments in RFP fusion device show higher currents lead to self-organized helical plasma.
Progress in advanced operational scenarios for tokamak fusion devices provides hope for steady-state fusion power plants.
In recent years several Large-Scale Scientific Facilities (LSSF) for nuclear, hadronic, and particle physics have been upgraded and constructed in China.
Experiment to shed light on high-energy plasmaâ€™s role in astrophysics, energy production and X-rays.
On Friday, a US weapons lab unveiled a super laser with the power to burn as hot as a star.
U.S. physicists say they've determined the crusts of neutron stars are 10 billion times stronger than steel or any other metal alloy found on Earth. The scientists said a neutron star is a star that collapsed when its core ceased nuclear fusion.
Research by a theoretical physicist at Indiana University shows that the crusts of neutron stars are 10 billion times stronger than steel or any other of the earth's strongest metal alloys.
The US construction of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is complete and researchers are preparing to start the first experiments aimed at recreating conditions at the heart of our Sun.
Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
