[quote:Anonymous Coward 685116:MV84MTIyNDFfMTI1NDE1MzlfOUU3NTYzMzQ=] Four hydrogen atoms, each composed of one proton, fuse. This produces a helium nucleus with two protons and two neutrons. What happened to the electric charge of the two protons that became neutrons? It's lost as pure energy in the form of light (well, electromagnetic radiation), and also a free-roving particle called a neutrino. Even in the center of the sun this requires a slightly improbable series of events which keeps the "burn" rate under control. So remember to wear your sunscreen next time you're out. You're standing under a giant unshielded fusion reactor! [/quote]
