China successfully tested ‘Artificial Sun’: 5 times hotter than the real sun

With the recent shortage of Fossils and Coal throughout the world, every nation was looking into the ways of unlocking the alternate to reduce the reliance on the abundance of natural resources and in that series of events, China has achieved a miraculous experimental success which could lead to further speculation of creating another energy source which is limitless in nature and can serve as the stepping stone in the resource field.

An advanced research team of scientists in China have successfully tested a nuclear fusion device that could produce limitless clean energy by producing more heat than our giant star Sun.

Read: Why is China’s Artificial sun considered as the alternate source of Clean energy?

The Reactor basically operates at a piping hot temperature of 70 million degree celsius which is somewhat seven times as hot as the Sun’s 15 million degree celsius that is currently considered as the almighty source of energy and life on Earth.

it’s quite unrealistic when we put it into perspective, which is that this chinese device is about 350,000 hotter than an air fryer working on its full potential.

It is right now based in Shanghai and termed as The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak( East) fully functioned for about 17 minutes and 35 seconds in its latest experimental observation which ultimately beats up its previous record of 120 million degree celsius which was set by it last year.

The EAST generator is also called an ‘Artificial Sun’ because it uses a similar technique of producing heat as accustomed to our own Giant star Sun, which is a ball of huge gas and plasma in space.

This technique which is known as Nuclear fusion is quite difficult for mankind to produce artificially. And to successfully deliver a nuclear fusion is somewhat a dream and goal of many physicists and engineers for a long time therefore this reactor will give them a direction and a vision to cater upon. 

The East project of China has a tremendous cost of around £701 million and currently constitutes a working crew of more than 10,000 scientists taking care of all the obstacles that comes under the surveillance.

EAST is expected to cost China more than $1 trillion by the time the experiment finishes running in June, and it is being used to test out technologies for an even bigger fusion project — the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) — that’s currently being built in Marseille, France
