Latest Nuclear fusion Stories
By TOM BEAL Energy expert Nate Lewis says nuclear fusion will solve our energy problems. Fusion occurring on our nearest star, 93 million miles away, produces enough energy in an hour to power our world for a year, says Lewis. We just need to find better ways to cheaply capture it and store it.
Scientists are currently seeking to develop new stronger steel in light of recent findings that show weakness in steel due to its magnetic properties.
FOUR DOLLARS is more than just the current price for a gallon of gas. It's also the cost of getting Americans to pay attention to national energy policy. Unfortunately, $4 a gallon is still not enough to get politicians to shift beyond tired platitudes and political divisions.
Using observations from NASAâ€™s Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE), an international team of astronomers has discovered a timing mechanism that allows them to predict exactly when a superdense star will unleash incredibly powerful explosions.
One of the great ongoing challenges of astrophysics, to find out how stars evolve and die, is to be tackled in an ambitious European research program.
For about six months of the year, bursts of plasma swirl around a donut-shaped tube in a special reactor, helping scientists learn more about a potential future energy source: nuclear fusion.
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran is pressing ahead with research tests on nuclear fusion, a type of atomic reaction which has yet to be developed for commercial power generation, a senior Iranian official said on Monday.
A particle accelerator at Sandia National Laboratories has heated a swarm of charged particles to a record 2 billion degrees Kelvin, a temperature beyond that of a star's interior.
Purdue University is investigating allegations that a scientist thwarted his colleagues' efforts to test his claims of producing nuclear fusion in tabletop experiments, even going so far as to remove high-tech equipment from a shared lab.
By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Purdue University is investigating complaints about a scientist who claimed to have achieved "cold fusion" using sound waves to make bubbles in a test tube, the university said on Wednesday.
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...
