Webster's New World defines fusion as "melting together." Therefore, nuclear fusion is the process by which more than one nuclei join together to form a heavier nucleus. Nuclear fusion is the process that powers our sun and the stars. Nuclear fission is the exact opposite process, in which the nucleus...

Webster's New World defines fusion as "melting together." Therefore, nuclear fusion is the process by which more than one nuclei join together to form a heavier nucleus. Nuclear fusion is the process that powers our sun and the stars. Nuclear fission is the exact opposite process, in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller nuclei. As of today, fission is what produces the energy in nuclear power. Unlike fossil fuel energy sources like coal and gasoline, which produce tremendous air pollution that evidence suggests is depleting the earth's ozone layer, nuclear energy produces no air pollution. But the waste products of nuclear fission are highly radioactive and remain so for hundreds of years. At this time, a world-wide research program is underway to harness fusion energy to produce electricity, which would also create radioactive waste material but it would decay much more rapidly. The only by-product of nuclear fusion power would be Helium, a harmless gas. read less

Don't want to over express myself, just join and feel the experience.

In fission atom splits into many particles and in fusion many particles unite to form large one.

When a He atom splits to give two H atoms is FISSION whereas when two H atoms combine or fuses to give a single He atom is called FUSION .

Nuclear fusion is the process by which more than one nuclei join together to form a heavier nucleus. Nuclear fusion is the process that powers our sun and the stars. Nuclear fission is the exact opposite process, in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller nuclei.

In nuclear FUSION more than one nuclei of same atom or different atoms combine together to form a heavier nuclei or heavier density (molecule/atom) where as in fission nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller nuclei
