International Thermo nuclear Reactor (Iter)

The French President Emmanuel Macron and government leaders from China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, US and 35 other countries started framework in assembling the components of what claims to be the ‘world’s largest nuclear fusion project’.

Fusion is a nuclear reaction which powers the Sun and forms a potential source of non-carbon energy.

Launched in 2006 and located in Southern France, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) planned to trial its first superheated plasma by 2020 and achieve full fusion by 2023.

The Sun’s atmosphere is hotter than its surface

The visible surface of the Sun (the photosphere) is around 6,000°C. But a few thousand kilometers above it – a small distance when we consider the size of the Sun – the solar atmosphere (the corona) is hundreds of times hotter, reaching a million degrees Celsius or higher.

The reason why has been puzzling scientists for decades, having finally been confirmed experimentally for the first time: Alfvén waves, first proposed in 1942, for which the Swedish scientist Hannes Alfvén won the Noble prize in 1970.
