According to the media, more energy has been generated than consumed in an American laboratory for the first time. Details should be known on Tuesday.
It seems that scientists in an American laboratory have made important progress in nuclear fusion research. The US Department of Energy and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California announced Sunday that US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm will announce an “important scientific breakthrough.” According to the media, for the first time an experimental fusion reactor produces more energy than is consumed during operation.
A net energy gain of 120 per cent has been achieved, Britons reported.financial timesOn Sunday, citing three people who participated in the research. also “Washington PostHe reported the alleged hack, quoting one fusion scientist as saying, “For most of us, it was just a matter of time.”
Details on Tuesday
The US Department of Energy and the laboratory initially did not want to confirm the reports because “the analysis is still ongoing.” But they announced a statement from the minister on Tuesday.
In nuclear fusion, atomic nuclei are fused together at extreme temperatures. Huge amounts of energy are released in the process. Conventional nuclear power plants generate energy from the fission of atomic nuclei.
In order to bring about nuclear fusion, a large amount of energy is required. According to its proponents, nuclear fusion could eventually become an alternative to burning fossil fuels and the controversial nuclear fission. Although dozens of experimental reactors have been built since the 1950s, none have succeeded in generating more power than is required for the process.
