New super-control magnets show progress toward nuclear integration

By Johnny Lupsha, current events writer

Nuclear fusion occurs when small atoms merge into larger bodies. For over a century, scientists have struggled to make the earth a clean, safe place. Two powerful new magnets are now approaching nuclear integration.

One of the ways to achieve nuclear integration – which has stimulated the sun for five billion years – is to convert hydrogen into plasma using excessive heat and pressure. Excellent magnets help in this process, and two different groups of scientists at the same time make announcements about major developments in the century-old nuclear crisis.

Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have announced that they have successfully tested the world’s most powerful, high-temperature controlled magnet. Meanwhile, scientists working with the International Thermonuclear Experiment Reactor (ITER project) were so strong that they could partially reach a carrier magnet.

What is nuclear integration and how did we find it? In the video series Chemistry and our universe — how it all works, Dr. Ron B. Davis, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Georgetown University, explains our history with nuclear integration.

Description of nuclear integration

“If heavy metals deplete their energy, small molecules, such as hydrogen and helium, must have a tendency to combine to form larger substances,” says Dr. Davis. “Chemists call this process a nuclear fusion.

“Fusion responses fission responses are dynamic ego. They involve the construction of larger nuclei.

He said that because of the nucleus charges, there is a natural resistance, and the method is causing the atoms to combine. Pushing them together requires energy. The stars are the only places in nature that have enough heat and pressure to produce nuclear fusion. The simplest and most powerful compound is hydrogen atoms to make helium. Dr. Davis says this response has been stimulating the sun for five billion years and possibly giving it another five billion energy.

Seeing in the sun

Understanding nuclear integration has taken more than a century. Even in the 1900’s, scientists debated the present age and the life of the universe, the sun, and the earth itself.

“One of the questions that burned was the age of the sun,” says Dr. Davis. The dating of radiometric rocks has put the solar system about five billion years old, but perhaps ‘How old is our home?’ It may be a more important question. ‘How long will it last?’ ”

In the late 1800’s, English astronomer William Haggins suggested that astronomical phenomena were astronomical, similar to the sun. Those who believed in him had to face the horrible thought that if they died, ours could die too.

“French astronomer Pierre Jansen recently observed a helium line in a solar eclipse in the 1868 solar eclipse, in which our stars’ wonderful heat and light were released primarily by the conversion of hydrogen into helium,” he said. Davis said.

Finally, the English astronomer Arthur Stanley Edington, who lived from 1882 to 1944, decided how much fuel was left in the solar system. He concluded that it would continue to burn for another billion years. But since then, other scientists have shown that when the amount of hydrogen grown in the sun is converted from hydrogen to helium, it must be used for a little over five billion years.

This incredible force and breakthrough have brought our efforts into nuclear integration – now one step closer to fruition.
