Fusion vs. Fission

Fusion and Fission – what is the difference and why do we prefer Fusion?

There are a lot of questions regarding nuclear energy and we wanted to share some information regarding the basics of Fusion vs fission energy.

Our objective is safe clean energy and the below information is a broad overview of the two different processes and why they are different.

Both fusion and fission are nuclear processes by which atoms are altered to create energy, but what is the difference between the two? Simply put, fusion is the combination of two lighter atoms into a larger one, and fission is the division of one atom into two. They are opposing processes, and therefore very different.
