London – Scientists at a British lab have made significant progress in generating electricity through nuclear fusion. He says progress has put him on track, he says, to use an unlimited source of clean energy – not without it.– In the case of decades.
Nuclear fusion is the opposite of nuclear fusion, the technology used today in nuclear power plants around the world. Fashion separates particles to produce energy. Fusion forces particles to collect, and can be done, scientists say, in a much safer way, with less radioactive material and a lower risk of accidents.
Scientists have not yet been able to create a fusion in such a way as to generate enough electricity to provide clean electricity. They believe that this could eventually be the case, but they say that this There will be injustice with the planet not to be pressured for it.
Dr. Ambrogo Fassoli, a professor of physics and chair of the International Research Consortium, said: “Progress,” he told CBS News. “It would be utterly immoral in human history not to try to take advantage of it.”
What was the progress?
Progress by Fasoli’s team based in the UK JET Laboratory He was seen making a small star and, using magnetic fields, he managed to set a record for five seconds. The star generated only enough electricity to boil 60 teapots filled with water, and more electricity was needed to produce it.
But Fasoli said those 60 energy tea pots were remarkable, as the experiment confirmed the design choices made for one of the largest reactors currently being built in France. ITER.
ITER is a multi-decade international project run by 35 countries, including the United States, China, Russia, and the European Union. Upon completion, scientists believe it will provide a blueprint for sustainable, global commercialization of fusion power.
“The challenge for the planets is to attack them from a planetary point of view,” Fassoli said. “This scientific, remarkable achievement reflects the fact that, even when you have political difficulties, there is no barrier between science and, in a sense, technology. We all work together. We are the political set. Find ways to cooperate regardless of you; after all, the goal is actually a goal for the good of all mankind. “
Fasoli said he expects the ITER project to be completed by 2050, and will enable scientists to design a demo commercial fusion reactor, in conjunction with private industry.
It may seem far-fetched, but using the power of the stars on Earth has never been easier.
