To open new ways for clean energy china tested the artificial Sun successfully. This artificial sun would be 5 times more powerful than the real son. The experiment was done with the help of a fusion reactor. This reactor can run for 20 minutes at a temperature of 70 million degrees Celsius.
China has switched on its artificial sun for a test and hoo boy was it hot. They tested it for 17 minutes as the country moved closer to achieving its ultimate mission.— Pubity Latest (@pubitylatest) January 4, 2022

The hydrogen and deuterium gases are used as fuel in this reactor. This move can bring scientists very close to clean energy.
Chinese scientists are busy since 2006 with this experiment but ultimate success. Many Chinese space specialists dub it a special milestone for clean energy.
A report explains that the “artificial sun” ran at 70 million degrees Celsius for as long as 1,056 seconds which indicates that this sun is 5 times hotter than the real sun.
Song Yuntao the director of the Institute of Plasma Physics said, “we would start to build our fusion reactor. That reactor will need another 10 years of construction and will be able for operation.” Song Yuntao believes that they will be able to construct the power generator and start generating power by 2040.
