On April 12, the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) project in China, also referred to as the “artificial sun,” created and maintained extremely hot plasma for seven minutes, breaking the previous record. Unlike nuclear power plants that rely on nuclear fission, this project, which is based on nuclear fusion, offers China an unlimited energy source without producing any leftover waste.

Atomic nuclei are pressed together during nuclear fusion, which produces energy. With a plasma maintenance time of 101 seconds, EAST previously held the record.

A new record was set by China’s nuclear fusion-based “artificial sun” project, which generated extremely hot plasma for seven minutes as opposed to the previous record of 101 seconds set in 2017. The discovery, which came about after more than 120,000 runs, is a significant step toward creating thermonuclear fusion reactors that are both highly efficient and reasonably priced.

The project’s objective is to create a nuclear fusion that is similar to that of the sun, providing an endless supply of clean energy using resources that are abundant in the ocean.

The most recent accomplishment is anticipated to act as an experimental base for both China’s independent fusion reactor development and operation as well as the operation of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor.

According to ASIPP director Song Yuntao, the high confinement mode, which significantly increased particle temperature and density, is where the breakthrough lies. It will pave the way for future fusion power plants to produce more electricity more effectively and affordably.
