During nuclear fusion, two or more nuclei are combined to form one or more different atomic nuclei and subatomic particles. The electrostatic repulsion that normally holds two atomic nuclei apart is overcome by quantum tunneling.
My tenth grader asked me to explain this text to him:
Back when I lived in Berlin, there was this one stray dog in my neighborhood. We called him Raptor. Why Raptor, you’re probably wondering. Well, Raptor had the nasty habit of sneaking up on you and taking a running jump on your back just when you were inattentive. Just like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park! My neighbor, Mrs. Weber, once got so scared that she had a panic attack. One day I was attacked at my front door by a hooded man who tried to steal my wallet. Then Raptor came out of nowhere and threw the man to the ground! I was able to break free and called the police. After that, Raptor never had to go hungry again!
