Figure 8?

Quote:
-- Scientists on Thursday carried out China's first successful test of an experimental fusion reactor, powered by the process that fuels the sun, a research institute spokeswoman said.

(This Chinese Tokamac reactor will never work. The Tokamac, Russian for “Torus” or donut, is the wrong shape for sustained fusion. The proper shape can only be an out-of-plane figure 8. The simplest mathematical solution of the MHD equation is a circle, or donut, twisted in half but does not touch at the center. Use a bicycle inner-tube twisted over in half to empirically find the proper shape for a fusion reactor. This is also the ancient shape of the symbol for “infinity.” Did ancient scientists know something that modern scientists don't know?)

[Source: Xinhua: Hefei, Anhui: 09/28/2006]

CHINA ANNOUNCES SUCCESSFUL FUSION TEST. Chinese scientists
announced successful thermonuclear fusion experiment in their
Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) based in
Hefei, the capital city of Anhui province. EAST, made with
special stainless steel, about 12 meters in height, and weighing
400 tons, is an upgrade of China's first-generation Tokamak device.

EAST is based at the Institute of Plasma Physics under the
Chinese Academy of Sciences. During the experiment, reports
indicate, the superheated plasma attained a temperature of about
100 million Celsius. The first tests lasted nearly three minutes,
and generated an electrical current of 200 kiloamps, a scientist
taking part in the experiment told Xinhua. The experiments are continuing, he added.

Li Jiangang, director of the Institute of Plasma Physics,
said the results of the tests met the expectations of the
sicentists and signified a great breeakthrough in the research of
thermonuclear fusion. "That means we lead all our competitors by
at least a decade," said Li. "The breakthporugh will make it
possible for mankind to harness a safe, clean, and endless source of energy."

The data of the EAST test will be submitted to the
International Atomic Energy General Conference in Vienna.

Ooops!!
Report of thermonuclear fusion in China was false

This experiment (and reactor design) in China is identical to the multi-national experimental fusion reactor the USA is involved in. It's hoaxed junk science meant mainly to scam tax dollar funding over to the big corporates. Of course the planned mileage they get out of this scam will include more than our tax dollars...

The shape referenced above (that BroJon.org argues) for a fusion reactor design is the Möbius strip. It's properties include having only one side and having only one edge--hence only one physical boundary, despite being a 3D shape. Though Marshall Smith of BroJon.org is a crackpot "junk science" intel fake... an IQ deficient loser... the Möbius strip is an interesting and useful physical shape mathematically.

I doubt anyone is really trying to solve nuclear fusion; else why the lack of common sense, why the junk science approach and why the identical designs based on already proven false hypothesis. I mean, this is really old, elementary shite they have going on from the physics point of view.

when Xinhua announces a succesful nuclear fusion experiment one can only

expect that this is false, becasue if it were true, would they be announcing it?

Nonetheless, contrary to some familiar myths,
the possibility of generating large amounts of power by fusion reactions
has long since been demonstrated--namely in the explosion
of the first hydrogen bomb, over a half century ago.

The hydrogen bomb, however,
requires a smaller, fission chain-reaction detonator
(in other words, a small atomic bomb)
in order to bring a mixture of hydrogen isotopes
to the necessary high densities and temperatures,
for large quantities of fusion reactions to occur.

The essentially difficulty of tapping fusion as a power source
for civilian purposes, lies in the challenge of generating large
amounts of fusion reactions in an efficient, controlled way,
without using an atomic bomb as a trigger.

Over the last 30 years,
progress in controlled nuclear fusion has been greatly retarded
by lack of political will, orientation toward a merely engineering or "applied science" approach,
rather than going for fundamental discoveries;
restriction of pursuit of experimental hypotheses to a few chosen directions;
the stifling atmosphere of bureaucratically managed "Big Science", etc.

Nevertheless,
the accumulation of hard, "brute force" applied physics
and engineering work,
has brought a first-generation fusion power reactor
into technological reach.

At present,
work is beginning on the construction of a giant fusion test reactor,
the "International Fusion Reactor (ITER)" inCadarache, France.
The core of the ITER reactor is a toroidal chamber,
filled at the start with extremely thin gas,
which an electrical discharge, induced by huge transformer coils
surrounding the chanber, transforms into the initial plasma:
The plasma is subsequently heated by microwaves
and neutral particle beams
to a temperature the equivalent of over 100 million degrees C,
and additional deuterium-tritium fuel mixture is injected.
The reactor employs a combination of currents generated inside the
plasma, and magnetic fields imposed from the outside,
creating a kind of "magnetic bottle"
holding the plasma suspended in the chamber's central region,
and keeping it insulated from the chamber's walls by a high vacuum.
When in operation, this reactor is projected
to be able to generate a gross power output of 500 million watts (MW)
from fusion reactions between nucleii of the
hydrogen isotops deuterium and tritium,
at temperatures in excess
of 100 million degrees centigrade,
during periods of
approximately six and a half minutes at a time.
(The device will be able to run produce a pulse about once every 30 minutes.)
Due to this pulsed mode of operation and the high power consumption
of its magnetic and plasma heating systems,
ITER cannot be regarded as a full prototype of a future fusion power plant;
nevertheless, it is expected to finally establish
the practical feasibility of such a power plant,
while at the same time
bringing a large number of technologies,
required for a future power reactor,
to a relatively high degree of perfection.

[Source: People's Daily: Chengdu: 10/18/06]

FUSION IS AN EFFICIENT WAY FOR PEOPLE TO GENERATE INFINITE
AND CLEAN ENERGY, SAYS CHINESE VICE PREMIER ZANG PEIYAN.
Welcoming the 21st IAEA Fusion Energy Conference at Sichuan
Province's capital, Chengdu, Zang called for expanded interest in
nuclear fusion development, and assured the scientists that China
expects to join the international community in this field. A
total of 830 scientists from China and abroad will attend the
six-day conference that began Oct. 17.

China became the first developing nation to host the IAEA's
fusion conference. India and the United States were competing for
hosting the conference as well. The most likely reason why
Chengdu was chosen as the venue is the recent successes achieved
in the Southwestern Research Institute of Physics, located in
Chengdu, in the areas of controlled fusion and plasma physics research.

Last month, China's other major facility, Experimental
Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), located at the Institute
of Plasma Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in
Heifei, Anhui Province, reported achieving fusion of hydrogen
isotopes reaching a temperature of 50 million degrees Celsius.

CHINA'S FAST NUCLEAR (BREEDER) REACTOR
WILL START DOING TEST RUNS IN 2010.

China made this announcement at the on-going
IAEA International Fusion Energy Conference in Chengdu, Sichuan.

Pan Chuanghong, director of the South Western Institute of Physics of
the China National Nuclear Corp.,
noted that China has been working on nuclear fusion for 40 years.
