Why Galaxies Stop Forming Stars?

Why Galaxies Stop Forming Stars?

The Quenching process of galaxies may vary from one to another. A Galaxy Cluster, or cluster of galaxies, is a structure that consists of anywhere from hundreds to thousands of galaxies that are bound together by gravity with typical masses ranging from 1014 to 1015 solar masses. Keeping the definition in mind, Galaxy clusters are…

Microwaves for Steady-state Fusion Reactor

Microwaves for Steady-state Fusion Reactor

Scientists make some outstanding progress through a latest Lower Hybrid Current Drive experiment. In a breakthrough at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC), researchers demonstrated how to overcome barriers to steady-state tokamak operation using microwaves. Seung Gyou Baek led a team of researchers which experimented with a Lower Hybrid Current Drive (LHCD) on MIT’s Alcator…

Scientists have Developed Optical Magnetic Fields for Reducing Instabilities in Fusion Plasmas

Scientists have Developed Optical Magnetic Fields for Reducing Instabilities in Fusion Plasmas

Scientists want to create a “star in a jar” by discovering an efficient way of eliminating instabilities in fusion plasma. Replication of the physical process, fusion, that occurs naturally in stars has been investigated on Earth for decades. Scientists created Tokamak in an attempt to replicate the conditions found inside the Sun, on Earth. Confined…

Tokamak Energy wants to introduce Nuclear Fusion Power by 2030

Tokamak Energy wants to introduce Nuclear Fusion Power by 2030

We might get electricity from Nuclear Fusion much earlier than we anticipated. Nuclear Fusion refers to a reaction where two or more nuclei fuse into each other to produce one or more atomic nuclei and subatomic particles like protons. Massive amounts of energy are released during this process and this accounts for the difference in…

Unlimited Energy Is One Step Away From Reality? Plasma Allows Nuclear Fusion To Happen

Unlimited Energy Is One Step Away From Reality? Plasma Allows Nuclear Fusion To Happen

Mankind is one step ahead in achieving the nuclear fusion. Considering this a source of the future, nuclear fusion can provide an unlimited amount of energy without pollution, through a process similar to that taking place inside the Sun. Magnetic field, intense pressure and heat is needed for the cores of the lighter chemical elements…
