Nuclear fusion occurs on the sun.


On sun, two atoms of hydrogen fuse to give a helium atom and a neutron.Here, the mass of the products is little less than that of the reactants.Thus a lot of energy is evolved.

This same process is related to the functioning of hydrogen bomb.

Note that nuclear fusion requires a very high temperature and pressure.
