Item description for Nuclear Fusion and Waste (Engineering) (Engineering) (Engineering) (Engineering) by John R. Vacca...

Fusion energy, the awesome power behind the sun and stars, has long been the "holy grail" of nuclear researchers worldwide. Its proponents argue the vast potential for cheap, clean energy from hydrogen isotopes extracted from sea water without the long term radioactive waste associated with nuclear fission. While great strides have been made over the past few decades, the high cost of research and expensive hardware limits most of the progress. Over 2,000 companies are currently active in the nuclear fusion energy field, including some of the world's largest corporations such as Boeing. Governments and corporations worldwide have ploughed over $60 billion into the nuclear fusion and radioactive waste problem in 2006 alone. In the last 15 years over a dozen Nobel Prizes have been awarded in the nuclear fusion field. Nuclear Fusion and Waste will describe the key concepts and principles, then analyze the opinions of the international scientific community and commercial industry on the subject of nuclear fusion and radioactive waste. Contributions, interviews, and comments from leading scientists and Nobel Laureates will provide a forum of information and opinions on the benefits and pitfalls of nuclear fusion, including the actual potential for viable energy solutions. FEATURES *Includes nuclear fusion safety maintenance hands-on projects and experiments at the end of each chapter *Contributions from internationally-acclaimed scientists *Includes various nuclear fusion fuel production and waste case projects at the end of each chapter.
