SUN temps produced on Earth in China?

Can this is even be true? It seems doubtful without the RS knowledge..

I had no idea they were even working on any such project... hmmm, what else are they working on

Temperature as such is not that new. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z_Pulsed_Power_Facility
Over 10 years back they supposedly reached over 3 billion Kelvin.

I think the instruments that give you temperature that is physical without melting/vaporizing are most reliable ones than these arbitrary numbers created by researchers. Even plasma is said to reach merely 2000-10 000+ degrees celsius.

I wouldn't be so sure they can sustain that kind of plasma "indefinitely" (if the definition of that word is "For a long time, no end defined", then yes) as they mention they want to achieve, you would always need some energy to keep it going on, it might take anti-matter from the cosmic side and that would make it long lasting, but I think it is in the wrong place here on Earth to work like that. It probably would need to be outer space to really work properly and out of the Moon's orbit.

The error here is that the sun is NOT HOT. It works like an LED, not a nuclear furnace. This was discussed on RS2 at one time.

I suspect China may do a "Rodney" and blow up half the solar system before long.
