China’s ‘artificial sun’ burns at 70 MILLION degrees for 20 minutes in new experiment five times hotter than real sun

From the-sun.com and noted on Benjamin Fulfords post:

CHINA’S “artificial sun” ran for 20 minutes at a whopping 70 million degrees in its latest experiment – five times hotter than the real sun.

Scientists hope the machine will help harness the power of nuclear fusion, which would bring humanity one step closer to creating “unlimited clean energy” by mimicking reactions that naturally occur inside the sun.

Researchers have been busy running tests at the Experiential Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), a nuclear fusion reactor facility, to make its auxiliary heating system more “hot” and “durable”, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The facility is called an “artificial sun” because it mimics the nuclear fusion reaction that powers the real sun – which uses hydrogen and deuterium gases as fuel.

Designed and developed by the Chinese, the EAST has been used since 2006 by scientists from all around the world to conduct fusion-related experiments.

But the project has just hit an important milestone.

Researchers managed to run the “artificial sun” at 70 million degrees for as long as 1,056 seconds, or 17 minutes, 36 seconds, South China Morning Post reports.

The real sun hits temperatures of around 15million degrees at its core.

Gong Xianzu, a researcher at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told Xinhua: “The recent operation lays a solid scientific and experimental foundation towards the running of a fusion reactor.”

Gong was in charge of the latest experiment at EAST, located at the Hefei Institute of Physical Science in the eastern province of Anhui.

More than 10,000 Chinese and foreign scientific researchers have worked together to bring to life the “artificial sun”.

The EAST harnesses extremely high temperatures to boil hydrogen isotopes into a plasma, fusing them together and releasing energy.

China has already spent around £701 million on the project.

The latest experiment, which started in early December, will last until June.

Institute of Plasma Physics director Song Yuntao said: “[The experiment] once again challenged the world record.

“We have comprehensively validated the technology, driving it a major step forward from basic research to engineering applications.”

In May, EAST achieved another milestone, running at a plasma – or hot gas – temperature of 120 million degrees for 101 seconds.

Song Yuntao, deputy director of the Institute of Plasma Physics at the Hefei Institute of Physical Science, said he hopes to generate power by 2040.

He said: “Five years from now, we will start to build our fusion reactor, which will need another 10 years of construction.

“After that is built we will construct the power generator and start generating power by around 2040.”

The two main challenges are keeping the temperature over 100 million degrees and operating at a stable level for a long time, Xinhua report

China’s ‘artificial sun’ that’s SIX TIMES hotter than the real Sun ‘will be ready this year’

Ascension Connection Call Thursday – Climate Change Discussion

Climate Crisis: MSCI Releases ESG Trends to Watch in 2020, With Climate Change Topping The List ...

Ascension Connection Call – Thursday, January 6th, 2021

Open Discussion on Climate Change

Join us at 10am PST/ 12 Central & Canada / 1pm EST   https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/

There are many different narratives out there that explain what is happening with our planet’s climate.  There is no denying that humans have abused Mother Earth for years by burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and agriculture activities.  Can climate change be stopped if we mitigate these behaviors?  Or is “climate change” ultimately a result of the natural cycles in our universe?  Lastly, are we in any danger?  And if so, how can we prepare?

Join us for an open discussion on this topic this Thursday at 10am Pacific, 6pm GMT, 1pm Eastern.  You can show up 15 minutes early so we chat before starting.  To make it easier to determine the time (and date) in your area we’ve provided this time converter link for your convenience.

If you would like to join our lighthearted conversation, please send an email to request the zoom link to Melissa@prepareforchange.net

ZOOM CALL GUIDELINES

To maintain a smooth, distraction-free Zoom call, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the Zoom platform.  If this is your first time on Zoom, don’t worry. We were all new at one time and we can walk you through the basics.

  1. Please mute your mic upon entering the room. This helps eliminate background noise, feedback, or other distortions that can disrupt the flow of communication.  Please keep your mic muted until your turn to speak.  If able, please have your video on.
  1. If you have a concern or find yourself emotionally triggered by something stated, please type a note in the chat box and a volunteer will assist you by opening a breakout room. This creates a safe space for you and a volunteer to have a private place to talk.
  1. Questions/comments pertaining to the topic of discussion should be verbalized and not placed in the chat as it can be quite distracting for the guest speaker and host. When verbalized, everyone benefits! If you would like to contribute to the discussion, please raise your hand or use the raise hand feature within the app. Please be sure to lower it after your question is answered or as soon as you are acknowledged to speak (and unmute your mic).  You can do this by clicking on the “Raise hand” button.  If your hand has been raised and you still have not been acknowledged, please mention this in the chat so a volunteer may assist.
  1. Please limit your comments/shares to about 2 to 3 minutes maximum so everybody has an opportunity to contribute to the discussion. Mute your mic when finished speaking.
  1. Be respectful in your communications and do not interrupt others who have been acknowledged to speak. Use the zoom reaction buttons to raise your hand, react to a comment, to support a speaker, or vote.  Please, do not speak until your name is called AND do not speak over others who have been acknowledged to talk.

  Recording and your Privacy

Prepare for Change strives to protect the privacy and security of all participants in our zoom calls.  Most of our conversations are not recorded.  However, from time to time, we may have a guest speaker or a topic that we wish to record and post on the site for the benefit of all members.  You will be notified in advance of such an event.  If you do not wish to be recorded on a zoom call, simply turn off your video.  You also have the option to change your name as it appears on screen or to use only a first name.
