China Develops Artificial Sun

It would seem as if China’s preparations for the Solar Minima, which is set to usher in a mini ice age lasting 350 – 400 years, have already been underway for quite some time.

The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak generated six times the heat of the sun without any long-term emissions.

China has simultaneously shattered a nuclear fusion record and reported the progress of an ambitious ‘second sun’ project with a recent announcement, which comes less than two years after its projected target.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Plasma has been working to create a limitless clean-energy source using magnetic nuclear fusion since 1998. Those efforts began making major strides in 2012, but now those researches have created an 11-meter tall, 8-meter wide doughnut-shaped magnetic fusion chamber called the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak.

Described as an “artificial sun,” this fourth-generation clean energy source was recently tested and reached 100 million degrees Celsius—about six times the energy of the sun—to produce 10 megawatts of power with zero greenhouse gas emissions and no long-life radioactive waste. The researchers working on the EAST project have already shared their data with the multinational International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, which promises to be an even larger magnetic nuclear fusion device.
