Poughkeepsie, NY – March 23, 2016 – The following are reports of the recent (Feb. 5, 2016) successful breakthrough in Chinese fusion energy research. Note that the superconducting Tokamak used by the Chinese was invented by Russian scientists (Soviet at the time of invention).

The EAST, after being completed in 2007, has been undergoing trial runs to check its capabilities. The Chinese new generation experimental Tokamak fusion device has successfully implemented the world’s longest (102 seconds) plasma discharge by the electronic temperature of 50 million degrees Celsius in January 2016, according to the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences, a branch of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said on Feb. 4, 2016. 1

Chinese engineers have managed to create hydrogen gas that is three times hotter than the sun. The team was able to maintain 50 million degrees Celsius for 102 seconds – a breakthrough that could someday make fusion power a reality. It follows news that Germany used 2 megawatts of microwave radiation to heat hydrogen gas to 80 million degrees Celsius for a quarter of a second. 2
