Something something Chinese nuclear fusion

Something something 50 million degrees for 100 seconds.

Discuss.

Either Germans and Chinese are going to be the first to have unlimited free energy within our lifetimes. Whoever wins we lose.

I'm fine with a fourth reich to be honest.
germans are extremely efficient.

If I have to live in a distopian world, it better be perfectly organized, respect sciences and engineering, and have blondes and beers as values.

I'll be laughing really fucking hard if the Chings get 1:1 before ITER.

I don't know if I should be annoyed because they fell for the tokamak meme or happy because the fusion race is on.
Anyway it's gonna be interesting.

>Other reactors of its design have a hard time maintaining plasma of this temperature for 20 seconds before a reactor meltdown starts to be a concern, much less a minute and 42.

In other words, all they did was ignore safety and kept their hands off the kill switch....

The trick is still sustained temperatures and converting that to energy.... beyond 2050..

Also, can't find the Chinese paper, but I'm pretty sure they didn't break the yield record held by JET, simply because of JET's big fucking size.

I'm keeping an eye on the fusion scene, it has gotten fucking nuts the last 2 years or so,you have some serious players in the ring now, Lockheed Martin have a massive boner for fusion because it's a defense company dream, you can make all your own energy in house and make the regulators love your ass for zero emissions. Also, ships that can harvest their own fuel from sea water and planes that can fly for years at a time.

>fusion on a plane
Will never happen for the same reason why nuclear planes never happened. too heavy and the public doesn't like to see nuclear reactors flying around. This reminds me FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T CALL THIS NUCLEAR POWER. For the sake of publicity scientist should agree to drop the term "nuclear" from nuclear fusion in order to prevent it going the same way that nuclear fission did with the public. It's been done before. Nuclear magnetic resonance imagers dropped the nuclear prefix and are now widely known as "MRI" machines in order to make the public less iffy about going into one.

What are the chances that we'll be seeing working fusion reactors in our life time? Are there any huge insurmountable obstacles I'm not aware of?

>What are the chances that we'll be seeing working fusion reactors in our life time?
High. ITER will reach ignition, there's no doubt about it. It's large enough for that, by a great margin. The technology (plasma-facing materials, etc) is so advanced that it take a shitload of time to develop, but other than that fusion works. After ITER comes DEMO, which will actually put electricity into the grid.
Are there any huge insurmountable obstacles I'm not aware of?
No. To be quite honest, the hardest part will be the the EU doesn't disband because of retarded nationalists.

People see delays in the construction of ITER -and also distrust whatever has "nuclear" in it like the retards they are- and then blame it on the physics of fusion, again like the retards they are, but fusion does work and we're getting pretty good at understanding it.

100% and no.

That's right it's the nationalists fault, not the globalists who have systematically fucked the EU population to the point where I'm surprised it's only Britain wanting to leave. But ignoring that ITER is a project that would survive the break up of the EU, a bit like CERN and the ESA, ultimately all they care about is if you're willing to fund them. If you are then you're welcome aboard. Unless I've missed something and Israel and Norway have become part of the EU.

Ackchually Israel is in Eurovision and the European football championship. Why, I have no idea, perhaps we adopted them because Asia doesn't want them.

>>7852184
>Ackchually Israel is in Eurovision and the European football championship.

And that's my point (although those two European institutions are more tangential. Neither Israel nor Norway are members of the EU, yet they're welcome to participate in both CERN and the ESA solely because they are willing to fund it.
