The device will be used in unlocking "limiteless clean power," an official said.
China has officially switched its ‘artificial sun’ on for the first time ever. The HL-2M Tokamak reactor is the biggest and most technologically advanced nuclear fusion reactor in the country and they’re claiming it is actually ten times hotter than the sun itself.
Experts are hoping that the device can be useful in unlocking “limitless clean power,” an official said, as it taps green energy.
In a report, we learn that the device “uses a powerful magnetic field to fuse hot plasma and can reach temperatures of over 150million degrees Celsius (302million degrees Fahrenheit).”
State-sponsored People’s Daily shared:
“The development of nuclear fusion energy is not only a way to solve China’s strategic energy needs, but also has great significance for the future sustainable development of China’s energy and national economy.”
China is planning to use the device with the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), France’s very own nuclear fusion research which will be completed in the year 2025.
China is “one of the six countries participating in the project,” wrote the Independent.
Meanwhile, China National Nuclear Corporation chairman Yu Jianfeng explained that the success of the project could lead to greater scientific knowledge about fusion power.
“If we [are able to] use fusion power, then human beings would have limitless clean power,” he said.
