There’s an article floating around the web this week about how China intends to build the world’s first "artificial sun"
"The project, dubbed EAST (experimental advanced superconducting
Tokamak), is being undertaken by the Hefei-based Institute of Plasma
Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It will require a total
investment of nearly 300 million yuan (37 million U.S. dollars), only
one fifteenth to one twentieth the cost of similar devices being
developed in the other parts of the world."
Somebody want to tell them we’ve been doing that for years here at fusor.net?
