The sun derives its energy from plasma, which scientists say is the forth state of matter, one removed from steam. The researchers have created pure plasma and confined it within a magnetic foeld. By compressing the field they can raise the temperature to fifty thousand degrees. In bigger experimenta fifty million degrees has been reached, five times as hot as the sun.
The goal of the research is to create an almost limitless source of cheap, clean energy for earth. But for this to succeed, the scientists must find a way of controlling the wild bursts of energy that cause hurrica???es and firestorms on the sun and appear as sunspots.
