China’s Artificial Sun to be Completed this Year – Hotter 6 Times than the Real Sun

China’s Artificial Sun to be Completed this Year – Hotter 6 Times than the Real Sun. China’s artificial sun will be ready this year. This artificial sun is six times hotter than the real sun, which could generate unlimited energy to the world.

According to media reports, this artificial sun will reach one hundred million degrees Celsius which is six times hotter than the real sun.

According to Scientists, this will help harness the power and energy of nuclear fusion. Which would revolutionize the world energy Eco. China’s artificial sun was announced last November but rapid progress has been done.

According to media reports, in early trials scientists have achieved high temperatures.  Scientists are using a device called a tokamak. Tokamak has a powerful magnetic field to trap hot plasma. It is around fifteen million degrees Celsius at our sun’s core but the plasma from China’s artificial sun has reached an electron temperature of one hundred million degrees Celsius and an ion temperature of fifty million degrees Celsius.

Energy is generated by ions. Ion temperature will be raised up to one hundred million degrees. Ion temperature is usually lower than electron temperature, so this may be difficult.

High-pressure nuclear fusion requires extremely high temperatures which the artificial sun could provide. If this project of china’s artificial sun is successful, it will do great help to ITER – International.

Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. Scientists from thirty-five different countries are working on this mega project, to generate new energy sources using nuclear fusion. If nuclear fusion can be harnessed using the low energy method. It could allow for the creation of unlimited clean energy.

In November Chinese researchers announced that the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) Reactor – an artificial sun designed to mimic the nuclear fusion process the real sun uses to generate energy, had reached an electron temperature of one hundred million degrees Celsius.

If China is successful in finishing HL-2M reactors this year, the international community will take years to apply the lessons learned from China’s artificial sun to the ITER reactor before it fires up its first Plasma, which is currently scheduled for 2025.
