In a first, a man made sun experiment has gone successful in China. The experiment created a pulse plasma discharge which was able to produce a temperature of more than 50 million degrees. This is unprecedented and highest at temperature at this point. The sun which was named as-Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak- was developed by Hefei Institute of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Science.
The artificial sun realised an ultra-high temperature long pulse plasma discharge for 102 seconds as of January.
“An artificial sun can provide limitless clean energy through controlled thermonuclear fusion,” Xu Jiannan, from the China Academy of Engineering Physics was quoted saying in a report.
As a matter of fact, light and heat of the Sun come from two of hydrogen’s radioactove isotopes — deuterium and tritium.
Well, science can make anything possible, can it really create sun !
