Hello everyone, I have a question about nuclear fusion. The simplest form of nuclear fusion is the fusion of 4 hydrogen atoms into 1 helium atom. Jupiter has a mass close to 1.9 * 1027 kg and around 90% of its mass consists out of hydrogen -> 0.9 * 1.9 * 10 27 = 1.71 * 1027 kg. I know that it is practically impossible to achieve, but is it theoratically possible to fuse all that hydrogen into helium in one instant or in a very short time? If it is possible, how much energy would be released during such an event? It would probably be extremely dangerous, but is there a way far more advanced humans could create such an event in the far, far future?
