Now, two teams of physicists have for the first time found experimentally the rate at which alpha particles (helium nuclei) fuse with carbon-12 nuclei to produce oxygen-16.
Because of the extreme difficulty of duplicating on Earth the temperatures and pressures at which alpha particles fuse with carbon-12 and for a variety of technical reasons, researchers had to study the reverse reaction -- the decay of oxygen-16 into carbon-12 and an alpha particle - to deduce the appropriate reaction rate.
