Here is my best explanation:

'melts away' is the definition.

The definition and answer can be both related to change as well as being verbs in their -s form.

Perhaps there's an association between them I don't understand?

'infusion from nuclear fission' is the subsidiary indication.

'from' is a deletion indicator.

'nuclear'+'fission'='nuclearfission'

'nuclearfission' with 'infusion' taken away is 'clears'.
