The enormous amounts of energy produced by fusion powers our sun and other stars. Fusion is even more appealing than fission as an energy source because no radioactive waste is produced and the only reactant needed is hydrogen. However, fusion reactions only occur at very high temperatures - in excess of $$40,,^\text{o} \text{C}$$.   Nuclear Fission and Fusion. Nuclear fission is the splitting of a heavy nucleus into two lighter ones. Fission was discovered in by the German scientists Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, and Fritz Strassmann, who bombarded a sample of uranium with neutrons in an attempt to . of 90 results for Books: Science & Math: Physics: Nuclear Physics: Fusion & Fission A Short History of Nuclear Folly: Mad Scientists, Dithering Nazis, 4/5.   Fusion occurs when two atoms slam together to form a heavier atom, like when two hydrogen atoms fuse to form one helium atom. This is the same process that powers the sun and creates huge amounts of energy—several times greater than fission.
