    Wenn das so Extrem gefährlich ist, was würde passieren, wenn ein Fusionsreaktor ( ein Fusionsreaktor, der größer ist, als die bisherigen, also effektiv strom erzeugt) dessen Plasma 10 mal heißer ist als das innere der Sonne, explodieren würde?? Wäre dann ein Fusionsreaktor nicht noch gefährlicher als ein kernspaltungs-Reaktor? Oder wäre das ungefährlich wegen dem kleineren druck?
    Es wäre Super lieb, wenn ihr mal ein Video darüber machen könntet

  • Serafin Heier
    Serafin Heier 13 days ago

    But if this is that extremely dangerous, what would happen, if a fusion reactor (a bigger than the today’s, a fusion reactor, wich could effective produce energy for a big part of a country) would blow up??
    Could you make a video about this :* would be nice :D

    But presumably all this depends on sample size. If you take one atom then that’s not gonna do much, if you take the whole sun the outcome will beslightly different. What is the sample size you’re using in the video to get these statistics?
