China’s ‘Artificial Sun’ Nuclear Fusion Reactor Sets a New World Record After Running at 216MILLION°F For 100 Seconds – As the Nation Inches Closer to Its Goal of ‘Limitless Clean Power’

China‘s ‘artificial sun’ nuclear fusion reactor has set a new world record after running at 216million degrees Fahrenheit (120million°C) for 100 seconds, according to state media. It also achieved a peak temperature of 288million°F (160million°C) – more than ten times hotter than the sun. Chinese scientists hope the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) will unlock a powerful green energy source in Beijing’s quest for ‘limitless clean power’. The cutting-edge device, which was first fired up last December, broke its previous record of maintaining a plasma temperature of 180million°F (100million°C) for 100 seconds. Its next goal could be to run at a consistent … Continue reading →
