How do you split an atom?

Answer

One way to split an atom is by stripping the atom's electrons with light pulses. Then it's sent to circulate in a magnetic field. When the atom is charged and going really fast, it can be thrown against a target, causing it to split. You can find more information here: http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasci/chem99/chem99427.htm
