China's artificial sun breaks temperature record

Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) fusion reactor, known as the “artificial Sun” China broke, at the end of December, its old record, The reactor was 10 times longer than the Sun’s core for more than 17 minutes.

During this period it maintained a plasma temperature of 120 million °C. This information was recently released by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. reactor broke down won the record From just 101 seconds about seven months ago, it has now hit the 1,056-second mark.

To estimate the power of this Chinese artificial Sun, the core of the real Sun reaches a temperature of 15 million degrees Celsius.

The team from the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (AISPP) is behind China’s artificial Sun. “ASIPP has a perfect team. We will face difficulties, no matter how difficult, ASIPP Director-General Professor Yuntao Song said in a statement!

The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak Fusion Reactor has been able to partially replicate the natural nuclear fusion process of stars. The researchers’ idea, with this artificial sun, is to lead to the production of energy Clean and durable.

The key to achieving the objective is the ability of the former reactor to maintain high plasma temperatures. These fusion reactions need to be self-sustaining, with superheated materials being able to be used to create this reaction.
