Hydrogens Unite

12 hydrogen fusion

Hydrogen fusion releases a tremendous amount of energy. However, for hydrogen nuclei to come close together, they must first overcome the very strong electrical repulsive forces between the positively charged nuclei. This is why fusion can only occur at high temperature.

This comic depicts a rally for protons to overcome their “differences”, so as to fuse together and shine as a new star is born. Haha.
