Chinese physicists have achieved another record for confining plasma in the field of thermonuclear fusion.
Scientific achievement brings humanity ever closer to an infinite source of energy. The Chinese press called the successful experiment with the EAST superconducting tokamak an “artificial sun”
Previously, the experiments were seconds, and therefore were called “shots”. Now, however, it was possible to keep the hot plasma inside the magnetic field longer. For example, at the end of 2021, a plasma with a temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius was held for more than 17 minutes.
Already in April of this year, the record was broken, a high degree of isolation was achieved. According to scientists, the experiment is extremely important, because the international toroidal experimental reactor being created will operate in the “H-mode”.
This means that humanity will reach an almost infinite source of energy, writes the publication. Military review.
