A new video spreading on social media claims to show China launching an “artificial sun” into the sky. The video comes amid recent reports about the country generating temperatures “five times hotter than the Sun” at its Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) fusion facility. There are several videos published on YouTube, Twitter and other media platforms in recent days to show the launch of this “artificial sun” in the sky. The footage, which is half a minute long, was recorded on a smartphone as a crowd of people observed and filmed this event. Can this be a new way to gain light? Will this harm the atmosphere? There are many questions to be answered about this event but so little information.
