In this lesson, students consider nuclear fusion and its potential to meet human energy needs in the future, as well as the substantial technology and engineering challenges associated with creating fusion reactions. They compare and contrast the processes of fission and fusion and the associated benefits and concerns about using these two processes as energy sources. A materials list, standards, safety notes, teacher background information, assessment, Internet resources, and references are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, About the Editors and Authors, Acknowledgments, Appendix, and Index.
