What are the uses of nuclear fusion

The energy comes from a critical nuclear reactor in which neutrons split fissile isotopes, such as 92-U-235 (Uranium) or 94-Pu-239 (Plutonium), and release energetic fission products, gamma rays, and enough extra neutrons to keep the reactor operating.

Nuclear fusion produce a lot of energy, that is a lot of heat

Of course, there is a problem in that some radioactive fission products will end up in the exhaust, but other concepts such as the nuclear light bulb (NLB)4 can contain the uranium plasma within a fused silica vessel that easily transfers heat toa surrounding blanket of propellant.

A slow reactor, also known as a , slows down the neutrons producedin the uranium fission to a thermal speed (the same speed as the unused fuel).

For example, 1 gram of fissile uranium has enough energy to provide approximately one megawatt (MW) of thermal power for a day.3The heat energy released from the reactor can then be used to heat up a low-molecular weight propellant (such as hydrogen) and then accelerate it through a thermodynamic nozzle in same way that chemical rockets do.
