In a breathtaking experiment to create the artificial sun in China, the results were successful. The artificial sun produced long pulse plasma discharge at a temperature of more than 50 million degrees - the longest discharge at such a high temperature. The researcher at China Academy of Engineering Physics, Xu Jiannan, reported that an artificial sun can provide limitless clean energy through controlled thermonuclear fusion.
The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), an artificial sun experiment developed by Hefei Institute of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Science, realised a ultra-high temperature (UHT) long pulse plasma discharge for 102 seconds as of January.
