German Fusion Reactor could get twice as hot as the Sun

 
Scientists are planning an upgrade to the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator that could allow it to generate temperatures of 30 million degrees centigrade (54 million degrees Fahrenheit). Analysis of the earlier experiments shows they can adjust the Stellarator’s magnetic field cage to prevent a variety of heat loss known as neoclassical transport. Physicists think such adjustments can prevent enough heat loss to double the Wendelstein 7-X ‘s heat output.

Researchers 70% of the Way towards Fusion Ignition

Scientists think the laser briefly ignited a chain reaction they call plasma burning, FutureTimeLine claims. In plasma burning, the fusion reactions get hot enough to trigger more fusion reactions. The hope is to use the laser to trigger a self-sustaining fusion reaction that can generate power.

Can Hyperloop fight Global Warming?

Hyperloop could limit Climate Change and Global Warming because airlines pump staggering amounts of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). For example, the Center for Biological Diversity estimates airplanes could generate 43 gigatonnes (43 billion tons) of greenhouse gases by 2050.
