In a massive breakthrough, a man made sun experiment in China has produced long pulse plasma discharge of more than 50 million degrees which is the longest discharge at such a high temperature. Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak, an artificial sun experiment realised a ultra high temperature long pulse plasma discharge for a full 102 seconds. The artificial sun can therefore provide unlimited clean energy through controlled thermonuclear fusion. Light and heat of the sun comes from two hydrogen radioactive isotopes- tritium and deuterium.
