About This Simulation

Discover the future of energy by activating a fusion reactor. In this simulation you will learn about nuclear fusion. How come it is so difficult to reproduce on Earth? What elements can I create? Where does all the energy come from? With your team's nuclear scientist missing, it's up to you to answer all of these questions. 

Bringing the future home!

Your mission is to bring home important knowledge about nuclear fusion from another planet. To understand fusion you will be going through a set of interactive learning activities with animated graphs, simple infographics, and visualizations. Applying this knowledge will help you progress around the lab. You may be stuck lightyears away from Earth!

Fusion in your hands.

Fusion is all about visualizing atoms combining together and how this releases energy. With this simulation, you'll interact with 3D atoms and combine them with your hands. You will even demonstrate Einstein's E=mc2 with a set of nano-sensitive weighing scales!

Restart the reactor. Ahead of you is the reactor, locked behind 3 security questions. As this is a fusion reactor, the questions are all on the topic of nuclear fusion. These questions ensure that if you harness the secrets of renewable energy, you have got to understand it! Think you're up for the challenge?
