Nuclear Energy

Energy from the inner core or nucleus of the atom, as opposed to energy released in chemical processes, which derives from the electrons surrounding the nuclei. Nuclear fusion is the release of thermonuclear energy by the conversion of hydrogen nuclei to helium nuclei, in a continuing reaction in the sun and other stars. Nuclear fusion is the principle behind thermonuclear weapons. Attempts to harness fusion for commercial power production have so far not succeeded.
