China maintains 'artificial sun' at 120 million Celsius for over 100 seconds, setting new world record:

China broke the record by keeping the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) by achieving plasma temperature at 120 million Celsius for 101 seconds and 160 million Celsius for 20 seconds, a major step toward the test run of the fusion reactor.

The Tokamak devise[sic] is located at the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is designed to replicate the nuclear fusion process that occurs naturally in the sun and stars to provide almost infinite clean energy through controlled nuclear fusion, which is often dubbed the "artificial sun."

The achievement broke a previous record of maintaining the plasma temperature at 100 million C for 100 seconds. According to Li Miao, director of the physics department of the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, it is a milestone in reaching the goal of keeping the temperature at a stable level for a long time.

"The breakthrough is significant progress, and the ultimate goal should be keeping the temperature at a stable level for a long time," Li told the Global Times, adding that the next milestone might be to maintain the stability for a week or more.

    Jews entrenched in important positions (in this case, academia and industry) are selling America up the river for China despite the collaboration being unpopular and harmful to national security. See the pic in this [] article and you'll get the gist of it. An internet search regarding academia and the CCP will yield lots of examples, and the domestic co-conspirators in each case always have Jewish surnames and spade-schnozzes.

    The far east are learning wisely, themselves sharing a common goal with their hook-nosed inbred co-conspirators -- to destabilize America -- and so the CCP pay Jews the money, then the Jews hand them the IP.

    Well, I for one welcome our circumcised overlords!
