Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research at a scorching 212 million degrees Fahrenheit for just 20 seconds.
Korea has done seemingly not possible by running its artificial sun nuclear fusion reactor, Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research at a scorching 212 million degrees Fahrenheit for just 20 seconds.

That's a similar temperature as the core of the Sun, its hottest part. Possibly 20 seconds doesn’t look like a lot, but for technology, we're simply beginning to get a grip on that, that is huge.

From syfywire: “In its 2020 experiment, the KSTAR improved the performance of the Internal Transport Barrier (ITB) mode, one of the next-generation plasma operation modes developed last year and succeeded in maintaining the plasma state for a long time period, overcoming the present limits of the ultra-high-temperature plasma operation,” said KSTAR authorities in a statement.

Consider a tokamak as a power plant on steroids. As an alternative to utilizing fossil fuels or nuclear fission to generate power, it makes use of nuclear fusion (the smashing together of atomic nuclei) to generate power and energy. Nuclear fusion also occurs in the innards of stars like our Sun.

These big balls of plasma depend on this reaction to fuse hydrogen atoms into helium, releasing energy in gargantuan amounts. Stars that have fused all their hydrogen into helium burn out.

KSTAR is operated by the Korean Institute of Fusion Energy and first succeeded at nuclear fusion previously in 2008. Since then, it has solely been advancing further and further into a sci-fi future.

The millions of elements that make up KSTAR will ultimately be integrated into the international ITER project, which seeks to create the biggest tokamak ever. This reactor will ignite between 2030 and 2035 if the whole lot goes as planned.
