Assembly of the ITER fusion reactor began this week in southern France, the largest scientific project in human history. It is hoped that the reactor will be able to generate clean energy using the same methods used to power the sun.
ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international project that hopes to generate clean energy through hydrogen fusion. The process and
fusion will be heated by a mixture of two hydrogen isotopes to a temperature of about 150 million degrees. achieve.
"In this space, we will have a machine in the heart. Simply put, one of the little suns will burn. The little sun will produce energy. ITER spokesperson Robert Arnoux told the French Xinshe.
The long-sought-after alternative to fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas, hydrogen fusion will not produce long-term waste, ITER said, and these fuels
ITER should start producing energy at the end of 2025 or early 2026 , But only on the basis of experiments. It will take many years to be able to provide usable power.
"My vision, I think the most realistic vision is that we must wait until around 2060 to connect the first ITER master Officer Bernard Bigot said.
The ITER project started in 2006. The treaty will treat 35 countries (including the European Union, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Russia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the United States).
Some environmental groups criticized the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor project, Call it "money pit" and "rage building of science sea city".
The project has been five years behind schedule, three times the plan. The initial budget cost nearly 20 billion euros.
