South Korea’s Artificial Sun is Operated at 100 Million Degrees Celsius for 48 Seconds

The artificial sun created by Korean scientists, called KSTAR, is named so because it attempts to replicate the nuclear fusion process that occurs in the real sun to produce energy. Recently, KSTAR scientists have been able to maintain a type of extremely hot “fire”, called plasma, at the astonishing temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius […]

20 Reflectors Proposed by Researchers to Be Installed in Orbit 1,000 Kilometers From Earth

Engineers at the University of Glasgow have unveiled a new concept that could dramatically increase solar power production and accelerate the world’s transition to renewable energy. Their study shows that placing large reflectors in Earth orbit could bounce additional sunlight onto solar farms even after sunset, boosting daily energy yields. Using sophisticated computer simulations, the […]

Scientists reveal origin of ‘Ghosts’, a type of transient luminous events occurring in the Atmosphere

In the mesosphere, a region of the Atmosphere once thought to lack electrical activity, gigantic and brief flashes of light occur. The discovery of these phenomena, just three decades ago, surprised the scientific community. Given their elusive nature, they were given names inspired by Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, such as sprites or elves. Related […]
