China will complete the construction of the

In the Chinese city of Hefei in 2006 the development of the "artificial sun" to simulate the process of nuclear fusion, which now generates energy. To get alternative and unlimited source of energy, scientists heated plasma to record temperatures inside a special chamber, called a tokamak. In November, the researchers were able to heat plasma to a temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius, and now it became known that the Chinese "Sun" is going to be finished in 2019.

A tokamak is called EAST and is a modified version of the experimental device, HT-7, was tested in 1994. According to the official China national nuclear Corporation Duan Sure, very soon the device will be able to reach milestones in the ion temperature and its construction can be considered complete. After that, mankind will make one of the biggest steps toward an unlimited source of clean energy.

The Plasma "artificial sun" will be 7 times hotter than this stars. If this goal is really achieved, a new device will be a reliable template for creating fusion reactors that will provide the entire planet with alternative energy. China is ready on much for the sake of achieving this goal, and therefore turns a blind eye to the fact that the support of the tokamak, costing $ 15,000 a day.

Work to create unlimited, or at least cheap source of energy is constant. At the beginning of the 2019 Nobel laureate Arthur Ashkin told about his secret source of cheap electricity. Read about a scientist and his secret project .
