welcome to explain in the future calm

this time I'm going to talk about mining

the moon for helium-3 as a fuel for

clean nuclear power almost inevitably

this topic is a complex one and requires

some understanding of the involved you

can have physics

future space exploration and the global

politics of securing future energy

supplies starting with the physics

current nuclear power stations based on

a process called nuclear fission this

released his energy by splitting a

uranium nucleus into fragments thereby

also producing radioactivity and nuclear

waste however the potential exists to

replace nuclear fission reactors with

those based on the nuclear fusion

process that fuels the Sun this could

involve fusing together the nuclei of
