questiion guys.. why nuclear power uses diff kind of elements such as plutonium? while sun has only two elements two produce energy. i ask that question because i am curious on how energy is created trough atom fusion. while studying the basic principle of chemical reaction of the SUN, the two main elements that created a huge amount of energy is hydrogen and helium. my conclusion is maybe i can create an energy if i do the same as the sun's chemical reaction. do you think this could be possible?
