No. In a fusion reaction, a heavier element is made of a lighter pair by "gluing" them together in a fusion reaction. When we split an atom, that's called atom splitting, or sometimes fission, not fusion. They are opposites. Stars give off light, but the primary fuel in their fusion engines is hydrogen, which they convert into helium. As the hydrogen burns out, the star begins making helium into carbon.

How is hydrogen changed into helium in nuclear fission?

Hydrogen is not changed into helium in nuclear fission. In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a reaction in which two or more lighter atomic nuclei are forced together and are fused into a heavier nucleus. In the case of the formation of hydrogen into helium, our sun does that in what is called the proton-proton reaction.


What 2 elements are produce due nuclear fusion?

The most likely nuclear fusion reaction to be successful in power production is between deuterium and tritium, which are both isotopes of hydrogen. The element formed in this fusion reaction is helium. So the only two elements involved are hydrogen and helium.
