Nuclear Fusion questions
 
Why isn't it breaking even? Is it just too much energy is needed to cause it? Or it needs to be a continuous reaction? Why can't we just heat up multiple hydrogen atoms enough to cause multiple fusion reactions?
And is it possible to use a molecule, say carbon dioxide, and induce fusion?
And hi to everyone XD
