First Experiment of China’s and the US’s Nuclear Fusion Reactor Succeeds

Chinese and American scientists have successfully conducted their first joint test of two fusion reactors.

The experiment on the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), a fusion energy reactor built by Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the DIII-D, a tokamak machine developed by General Atomics in the USA, found that it’s feasible for a tokamak fully relying on bootstrap current and non-induced current to run in a high-performance and steady way, Anhui Daily reported, citing the Hefei-based institute.

That experiment is part of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project, which is intended to make the long-awaited transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power plants.
