Artificial Sun of South Korea Creates World Record

The Sun is the closest star in our solar system, and many scientists believe that the gases that are burning on the Sun will soon run out. The inevitable death of the only star in the solar system pushes mankind to pursue studies and experiments in order for the human race to survive and thrive soon as the only source of heat in the solar system dies out.

Scientists believe that when the Sun burns out, the solar system and planets around it will be cloaked in darkness and covered in shrill cold temperature making it impossible for life to thrive on Earth. The whole world will be dark, and vegetation will not survive as it needs the light of the sun to live. This would ultimately result to an apocalypse and an inevitable extinction of all things living. The solar system will be a grave of massive celestial bodies.

That’s why many experts, astronomers, scientists, and inventors all over the world are funded to make studies and research as to how mankind can prepare in this kind of scenario. Experts in Korea developed a unique scientific engineering which constructed an artificial sun on Earth.

This superconducting fusion device was developed in South Korea. They called their device KSTAR, which stands for “Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research”. The artificial sun, KSTAR, was able to set a new world record where it was able to maintain a high-temperature plasma for 20 seconds with an ion temperature of 100 million degrees.

The project was a spearhead and a brainchild of the Korea Institute of Fusion Energy which is housed in Seoul National University and Columbia University in the United States.

It has exceeded last year’s record with a total of 8 seconds of operation during last year’s KSTAR Plasma Campaign.

For the first time in history in 2018, the KSTAR was able to sustain an ion temperature of 100 million degrees.

Researchers decided to recreate the fusion reactions on the moon with hydrogen isotopes placed inside the KSTAR which help create a plasma state where ions and electrons are separated heating the ions in vast and extreme temperatures and being able to maintain its state as well.
