# How can two nuclei fuse together?

Yes

Theoretically, it is possible, but it would require enormous amounts of energy; in fact, the possibility can be disregarded in any lab procedure.

Two nuclei can fuse together through a process called nuclear fusion, which occurs under high temperatures and pressure. This process is primarily observed in stars and involves overcoming the electrostatic repulsion between positively charged nuclei to bring them close enough for the strong nuclear force to bind them together.
