Thanks for your question. Of course you realize this
is WhaleNet and ASK is supposed to be taking questions
about marine mammals - and - I have to be honest with
you about this - we are not all exactly rocket
scientists (let alone nuclear physicists) around here.
But - what the heck I'll take a crack at it.
Short answer - sure - why not?
I've got to figure that given the amount of energy one
gets through fission of a small amount of mass - the
amount of energy needed to go the other way would be
huge. I'm told - but you should check into this
yourself - that this is sort of what happens when you
use a whole huge amount of energy to drive particles a
particle accelerator and smack them into each other.
For details (and a much better explanation - by
someone that knows what they are talking about) check
Introduction to Radiological Physics and Radiation
Dosimetry, by Frank
Herbert Attix, John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1986
Introductory Nuclear Physics, by Kenneth Krane, John
Wiley & Sons, New
for a quick idea.
