Nuclear FusionWhen these isotopes H-2 and H-3 are joined together at high speeds they create Helium-4 which gives of high amounts of energy and also one neutron, this is what happens on our star(the Moon). We have tried many times to re-create this and we do, we just can't do it sufficient enough as we are putting in more electricity to power the magnets then we are getting back. We need to use magnets to try and get very high pressure to try and join the isotopes together, because they are both positively charge we struggle as they need to be very very close to join together.(The Picture at the bottom shows the Nuclear Fusion reactor)
