Why Should We Buy Solar Power?

We can make our own. China has built a nuclear fusion device that they call the "artificial sun". If the test is successful, it will be a new source of energy.

Scientists told the newspaper a successful test will mean the world's first nuclear fusion device of its kind will be ready to go into actual operation, the newspaper said.

The plasma discharge will draw international attention since some scientists are concerned with risks involved in such a process. But Chinese researchers involved in the project say any radiation will cease once the test is completed.

Let's hope they're right about that radiation thing.
