Chinese scientists have successfully contained super-hot plasma for a record length of time puma suede creeper black gold , which brings the humankind one step closer to clean and virtually unlimited energy offered by nuclear fusion, media reported.

The "artificial sun," officially known as the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), is an experimental thermonuclear fusion reactor that replicates the energy-generating process of the sun.

On Monday, the Chinese Academy of Sciences team working on the project announced that EAST became the first tokamak to successfully sustain H-mode plasma for 101.2 seconds at 50 million Kelvins (49.999 million C), China Central Television said.

China is a member country of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project puma creeper oatmeal suede for sale , which aims to produce 500 megawatts of fusion power with only 50 megawatts of input power in an experimental tokamak in southern France.

Scientists say this major breakthrough will be of great value to the human quest for clean energy via nuclear fusion.

Yang Hongwei, director of the energy efficiency center at the National Development and Reform Commission, told the Global Times that "artificial sun" represents the direction of clean energy development.

"This breakthrough is an important step amid the transition from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy," said Yang.

From a long-term perspective, development of energy technologies will provide the ultimate solution to the problems of pollution and greenhouse gas emissions arising from the use of traditional energy, he elaborated.

However puma suede creepers womens sale , Lin Boqiang, dean of the China Institute for Studies in Energy Policy at Xiamen University, struck a note of caution when talking about the commercialization and application of this technology in daily life, saying that the potential cost must be taken into account for wider application in households. He believes that there's still a long way to go before achieving this goal.


KHARTOUM, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Wooden boats in Sudan are still favored today as a means to cross the Nile River, particularly during seasonal flooding of the Nile rihanna creepers velvet burgundy , when levels of the river rise as a natural cycle since ancient times.

The wooden boats are flexible with the ability to withstand the wind and fluctuation of the weather, pointing out that the price of a wooden boat is less than 2,000 Sudanese pounds (around 100 U.S. dollars).

The wooden boats are built of al-Sunnut, or acacia wood, which is brought from areas of the White Nile in South Sudan, Al-Haj Mohamed said balenciaga speed trainer red , adding that the building of a boat could take a month.

""It is not an easy task, where we begin with preparing the wood into forms of plates, then we make the general structure of the boat which is composed of the floor, the front, locally known as al-Muqadima, and the rear womens balenciaga speed trainer olive , locally known as al-Daraga (the shield) and finally the wooden plates are plastered to complete the body of the boat,"" he said.

He explained that boats are built as required in terms of length, width, height, size and purpose, noting that the builder must have an accumulative experience to complete the work with accuracy.

""Fishing boats are usually five to six meters in length balenciaga speed trainer olive , passenger boats 10 to 12 meters and commodity boats 15 to 20 meters,"" he said.

""We build wooden boats for all areas of Sudan. We have boats that sail to the far north of Sudan and the White Nile areas in central Sudan. We even have boats that are now present in South Sudan,"" he said.
