NASA Found Another Way Into Nuclear Fusion

Posted by in categories: nuclear energy, particle physics, space


NASA has unlocked nuclear fusion on a tiny scale, with a phenomenon called lattice confinement fusion that takes place in the narrow channels between atoms. In the reaction, the common nuclear fuel deuterium gets trapped in the “empty” atomic space in a solid metal. What results is a Goldilocks effect that’s neither supercooled nor superheated, but where atoms reach fusion-level energy.

☢️ You like nuclear. So do we. Let’s nerd out over it together.
