China’s nuclear reactor is unbelievable

China’s nuclear fusion reactor set a record with sustained high temperatures of 70 million degrees Celsius.
The facility’s plasma was heated at five times the heat of the sun, and the Experimental Advanced Tokamak Reactor (EAST) lasted in this mode, known as the artificial sun, for 1,056 seconds. It is the generation of clean, nearly unlimited energy that mimics the natural reactions that occur inside stars.
It is worth noting that this process does not require fossil fuels and does not leave radioactive waste, and the project cost the Chinese authorities more than 800 billion dollars.
In June 2021, Chinese scientists broke a record in this field, with plasma temperature reaching 120 million degrees Celsius in 101 seconds and 160 million degrees Celsius in 20 seconds.
The “EAST” experiment is part of the International Experimental Thermonuclear Reactor (ITER) project, in which China, India, the European Union, Russia, the United States and other countries are taking part, and is located on French soil
