✓China successfully powered up its “artificial sun” nuclear fusion reactor for the first time marking a great advance in the country’s nuclear power research capabilities.

✓The HL-2M Tokamak reactor is China’s largest and most advanced nuclear fusion experimental research device.

✓The reactor is often called an “artificial sun” due to the enormous heat and power it produces.

✓It uses a powerful magnetic field to fuse hot plasma and can reach temperatures of over 150 million degrees Celsius which is approximately ten times hotter than the core of the sun.
