    starts, fusion sets its eyes on energy domination in the twenty-first century. Unfortunately, fusion research is severely underfunded and is met by criticism from many, arguing that it is unviable or even impossible and that the payoff isn’t worth the initial cost. Although they may argue this they ignore the fact that fusion is extremely efficient, could solve environmental woes, and that fusion produces massive amounts of energy from readily available fuel sources. First I deem it important to immediately shoot down some of the criticism that people have of fusion. The argument that it is impossible has already been debunked, as a few test reactions have been produced, with the most successful…

    Guardian). Fusion energy will be a future energy source, with the ITER machine under construction based on the ‘Tokamak’ concept of magnetic confinement. ITER is predicted to start operating in 2019, with electricity generation to follow thirty-forty years later (ITER). In a fusion reaction, energy is released when two light atomic nuclei are fused together to form one heavier atom. This process powers the Sun and stars with the formation of hydrogen to form helium.…

    of chemistry, nuclear chemistry, deals with radioactivity and nuclear processes. The most notable of these processes is transmutation. Transmutation refers to the action that changes an atom of a specific element to a different element, either naturally or artificially. Natural transmutations are the radioactive decay of a large, unstable isotope into a more stable, less massive sample. These types of changes to the nucleus occur naturally as the particle tries to restore its stability. In…

    can be expensive and time-consuming. Moreover, chemical weapons are cost effective, they can be attained at relatively low costs when compared to conventional weapons and limited amounts can trigger immense effects (Croddy 8). Besides uses in battle, the terrorist group, Aum Shinrikyo, demonstrated that severe effects, i.e. death, injury, and terror, can be evoked by public releases by evidence of their Sarin attack on the Tokyo subway. However, chemical weapons are “mentally linked to the most…
