The Chinese were able to "warm up" the fusion reactor to 160 million degrees Celsius


The advanced Chinese experimental tokamak EAST has set another record. In recent tests, plasma, heated to 120 million degrees Celsius, was held inside the "artificial sun" for 101 seconds. This was reported by the Chinese state agency Xinhua.


Recall that in 2020, the plasma inside EAST reached a temperature of 100 million degrees. However, it was then possible to keep her in this state for only 20 seconds. Consequently, the new record surpassed the previous one by five times. At the same time, according to the information published by the agency, during the current experiment, the plasma temperature inside the tokamak reached 160 million degrees and was kept at this mark for 20 seconds.

It should be noted that the aforementioned achievement plays a huge role for world science. Indeed, with each such record, mankind is approaching the creation of a full-fledged thermonuclear reactor - an almost endless source of energy, which in terms of radiation is much safer than traditional nuclear reactors used at nuclear power plants.

To date, several countries are simultaneously developing their own developments in this area, including Russia, which recently launched its T-15MD tokamak. In addition, there is an international project ITER, in which 35 states participate.

    Well, where are these Bendera people? They squealed recently, spattered with saliva. That they went deaf right away and forgot how to read? I say: "The rotten gut is immediately visible."
    The Chinese do not care, they will not do anything without Russia. "Not a horse feed." If Putin doesn't pinch the money, we will be the first to launch a thermonuclear reactor. Like the first nuclear power plant !!

      Dear Steelmaker! Bendery people live in Bendery. (The city is like that) ...

        Don't give a damn. Who needs the meaning of what has been said understands, and who does not need to pay attention to mistakes.

      Young man! You can immediately see the skill. Our tokomak is the most tomato one!

    As I understand it, the efficiency of this "reactor" is still less than 100% - what is called "but things are still there ..." ....
    It seems that the Chinese are very successful in copying from others not only the correct technologies, but also obvious mistakes. These are truly diligent students!
    But the Chinese leadership does not understand and does not forgive mistakes ... let's wait and see how it ends with them.
    But our "scientists" are definitely not in danger - long live democracy!

      Ygm, I heard that in Japan, during the period of its technological development, the following case took place:

      The Japanese ordered a ship from a European shipyard. While the ship was being designed, customers began to demand changes in the design, and then, under various pretexts, they refused the order. And after that, at the Japanese shipyard, the exact same ship that was originally designed by the Europeans came off the slipway. In the end, another ship, built by the Japanese, capsized immediately after leaving the slipway. The Europeans deliberately slipped "wrong drawings" to the Japanese.

      You don't need to calm yourself down. You are not in a dream. What they did on the orders of the whole world is custom-made, but what they did for themselves, they did it conscientiously. Many things have been stolen from the Chinese since ancient times, from the use of clay to the manufacture of silk. From launching rockets to using gunpowder. At the time of a thousand years before the new era, China already had multi-decked ships in the rivers and they used not rowers but the force of the wind. They did not sail in the seas, but were used for transportation. All the technique that the Mongols used to conquer the planet was invented and made in China. The entire Far East is an invention of the Chinese.

    so a thermonuclear reaction was supposed to start ...? : - /

      The fact is that the joke is that there is no reaction and never was!
      All scientists know about this, but they are silent!
      Ask any of them and you will put him in an awkward position.

      The conclusion suggests itself - a banal "conspiracy to cut budget funds."
      And only you know who can get money out of the budget ...

      But in China they shoot for this ... - they destroy this "leaven" in the bud, that is, they change people at the genetic level ...
      It's just that the Chinese have not yet understood the whole essence of this scheme ... but I think they will figure it out over time.
      It is more difficult for them to understand the deception - most of the thieves' genes are already missing. Well, we naturally "know much better" ... sadly.

    So that electromagnets are so ... super-duper?)
