Are we under the Sun? or a Satellite? Or a Mirror? Or a Projection?


The scientists claim they are trying to create a “more dependable” source of energy than the sun.  Seriously. They claim that all these countries, testing, launching and operating all these false Sun’s that are 5 or 10 times hotter than our real sun don’t affect the our earth’s environment and do not contribute to global warming.  They claim that there are no sun simulators in the sky.  LOL.

Scientists LIE!!  Governments LIE!!!  GLOBALISTS LIE!!!   YOU are being lied to.

The truth is that science is working everyday on experiments and developments that put us and our Earth in danger!  Though it makes no sense to our human mind that anyone would want to destroy the EARTH, the truth is these people are not human!!  They are obseessed!!  They are possessed!  They are working with dark forces to STEAL, KILL and DESTROY!

The bible says over and over again, that in the last days the SUN, MOON and STARS will not give their light.  They will be darkened.

The elite who rule the world know that this is coming.  They have been so busy creating the lies and deception.  They want you to believe that life is a simulation.  Don’t believe me… just post this in your search engine:

Nothing is real we live in a simulation



In this next video, of course, we are told that China (and any other country) has never launched a fake sun.  Though we have photos and videos that show otherwise.  We also learn that China is “planning’ to launch artificial meteors, which they had planned to launch in 2020 but supposedly had to postpone.  LOL  No doubt other nations have launched artificial meteors and that is why we have been seeing so many in the last decade.  The video also tells us that China is collaborating with all nations.  Which of course we already know from the evidence seen.  The video assures us that even though China is so advanced, a win for China is a win for all.  MORE NEW WORLD ORDER PROPAGANDA!!  Don’t believe what they tell you, believe what can be plainly seen with our own eyes!!  

ALL GOVERNMENTS are currently working together under the control of the UN who undermined ALL NATIONAL SOVERIGNTY and holds the strings for the NEW WORLD ORDER.   Beware because in the eyes of the UN China is the role model.

By India Today Web Desk: China’s space programme has been growing by leaps and bounds, with 2021 as one of the most successful years for Beijing in the 21st Century. The country has now built an artificial moon facility that will simulate lunar conditions and the environment for scientists to test new tech and future missions.

Being called the “first of its kind in the world”, the facility located in the eastern city of Xuzhou, in Jiangsu province, will make gravity “disappear”. The facility can replicate low gravity environments for as long as one wants, making China less dependent on zero-gravity planes to train astronauts, and environments to test new rovers and technologies.

Li Ruilin, from the China University of Mining and Technology, who is leading the development, told the South China Morning Post, “While low gravity can be achieved in an aircraft or a drop tower, it is momentary. Li said in the simulator that effect can “last as long as you want.”

The mini-moon is about two feet in diameter and the artificial surface has been made with rocks and dust that are as light as those on the moon. It is worth mentioning that gravity on the Moon is not zero, it is one-sixth as powerful as the gravity on Earth due to the magnetic field.

Some experiments such as an impact test need just a few seconds, but others such as creep testing can take several days,” Li added.

The idea to develop the facility has its roots in the Russian-born physicist Andre Geim’s experiments to levitate a frog with a magnet. The physicists later won a Nobel for this groundbreaking experiment. “Magnetic levitation is certainly not the same as antigravity, but there is a variety of situations where mimicking microgravity by magnetic fields could be invaluable to expect the unexpected in space research,” the physicists told SCMP.

With China already clearing the fourth phase of its lunar exploration program that will see the construction of a research station on the Moon and lunar exploration through future Chang’e-6, Chang’e-7 and Chang’e-8 missions, the new facility will play a crucial part.

The Chang’e-7 spacecraft will be launched to the moon’s South Pole, followed by Changé-6, which will return the samples from the surface. Beijing already has plans to land astronauts on the lunar surface by 2030 as it continues the construction of its space station in Low Earth Orbit.

Li further told SCMP that the moon simulator could also be used to test whether new technology such as 3D printing could be used to build structures on the lunar surface. “Some experiments conducted in the simulated environment can also give us some important clues, such as where to look for water trapped under the surface,” he added.

China has already developed an “artificial sun” to replicate the nuclear fusion process that occurs naturally in the sun and stars to provide almost infinite clean energy.

According to the researchers, the inspiration for the chamber came from Andre Geim, a physicist at the University of Manchester in the U.K. who won the satirical Ig Nobel Prize in 2000 for devising an experiment that made a frog float with a magnet.

The levitation trick used by Geim and now in the artificial-moon chamber comes from an effect called diamagnetic levitationAtoms are made up of atomic nuclei and tiny electrons that orbit them in little loops of current; these moving currents, in turn, induce tiny magnetic fields. Usually, the randomly oriented magnetic fields of all the atoms in an object, whether they belong to a drop of water or a frog, cancel out, and no material-wide magnetism manifests.

Apply an external magnetic field to those atoms, however, and everything changes: The electrons will modify their motion, producing their own magnetic field to oppose the applied field. If the external magnet is strong enough, the magnetic force of repulsion between it and the field of the atoms will grow powerful enough to overcome gravity and levitate the object — whether it’s an advanced piece of lunar tech or a confused amphibian — into the air.

The tests completed in the chamber will be used to inform China’s lunar exploration program Chang’e, which takes its name from the Chinese goddess of the moon. This initiative includes Chang’e 4, which landed a rover on the far side of the moon in 2019, and Chang’e 5, which retrieved rock samples from the moon’s surface in 2020. China has also declared that it will establish a lunar research station on the moon’s south pole by 2029.

Social Media Users Baffled After Viral Videos Claim China Launched An Artificial Sun Into The Sky

Featured Image Credit: Twitter

China hit headlines last week after switching on their ‘artificial sun’ for its first test and, spoiler alert, it was very hot. However, considering the fast-pace social media world we live in, the incident got majorly misconstrued across the internet.

A number of images and videos of what looks like a ball of light and gas went viral, with users claiming China had actually launched its recent experiment into the sky. 

One video, which has been retweeted over 20,000 times, pictures a bright light ascending into the air followed by billows of smoke, with a crowd of onlookers on the beach avidly capturing the moment on their phones.


Another viral video, captioned ‘the moment China launched the artificial sun, as night turned into day’, shows a similar ball of light, with its ascension taking place at night.

Twitter users commented on the event, with many frightened by the possibility of a fake sun. 

One said: “If they don’t stop this sh*t before the end of the world.” 

Another replied: “This is legit scary.”

A third joked: “Now why in the hell would y’all want more day time.” 

A fourth pondered: “This looks dangerous on the environment. What if that thing collides with the real sun.” 

Of course, any tech-savvy social media users took the opportunity to mock those who actually believed the fake news.

One sarcastically commented: “Yeah, I’m in China, this is 100% real. It’s winter so the extra sun has been pretty sweet, little dimmer and more yellow than the old one, but I hear they’re working on it.”

Another wrote: “We all have the same internet, just look into it and lets share info.”

China’s actual experiment, which remains firmly on the ground at a nuclear fusion facility in Shanghai, is designed to hopefully one day create ‘unlimited clean energy’.

The machine managed to reach temperatures of up to 70 million degrees Celsius.

To understand just how hot that is, our Sun, the one that Earth rotates around in the solar system, only burns at roughly 15 million degrees C.

That means China’s EAST machine can burn almost five times hotter than the thing that is literally keeping everyone on Earth alive.


The video showed the launch of a rocket at the Wenchang Spacecraft launch site in China.



Video Showing a Rocket Launch Shared as 'Artificial Sun' Made by China

A video showing what seems to be a ball of fire rising from the horizon and moving up towards the sky has been shared by several social media users with a claim that it shows an “artificial sun” developed by China.

However, we found that the video showed the launching of a rocket at the Wenchang Spacecraft launch site in China.

The claims were shared at the back of the news reports talking about a world record set by the experimental advanced superconducting tokamak (EAST) for the longest sustained nuclear fusion at 1,056 seconds. The project, which is often referred to as Chinese “artificial sun”, began in 2006 and its ultimate goal is to “provide a steady stream of energy like the sun”.


JANUARY 2, 2021

The Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (or KSTAR) is a superconducting fusion device, also known as the Korean Artificial Sun. As the name suggests, the device set a world record as it successfully maintained the high temperature plasma for 20 seconds, with a temperature of over 100 million degrees Celsius.

On 24th November 2020, the KSTAR Research Center at the Korea Institute of Fusion Energy (KFE) announced their success. The research was conducted jointly with the Seoul National University (SNU) and Columbia University of the United States.

In 2018, for the first time, the artificial sun reached a temperature of 100 million degrees, but could only retain it for 1.5 seconds. The next year, in 2019, the plasma operation time was 8 seconds. It is an achievement to extend this by more than two times in the 2020 operation.

How the artificial sun works

Efforts were made to recreate the fusion reactions that take place on the sun, on Earth. For this, Hydrogen isotopes must be placed inside a fusion device like KSTAR. This creates a plasma state, in which ions and electrons are separated. Ions must be heated and maintained at high temperatures.

Even though there have been other fusion devices which have briefly managed plasma at a high temperature of 100 million degrees or higher, none of them could hold the temperature for more than 10 seconds.

Artificial sun

In 2020, KSTAR (or the artificial sun) improved the efficiency of the Internal Transport Barrier (ITB) mode. Developed last year, it is one of the next generation plasma operation modes. Thus, the artificial sun was successful in maintaining the plasma state for a long period of time by overcoming the limits of the ultra-high-temperature plasma operation.

Director Si-Woo Yoon of the KSTAR Research Center at the KFE said, The technologies required for long operations of 100 million- plasma are the key to the realization of fusion energy, and the KSTAR’s success in maintaining the high-temperature plasma for 20 seconds will be an important turning point in the race for securing the technologies for the long high-performance plasma operation, a critical component of a commercial nuclear fusion reactor in the future.”

Yong-Su Na, professor at the Department of Nuclear Engineering, SNU, who has been jointly conducting the research on the KSTAR plasma operation, added, “The success of the KSTAR experiment in the long, high-temperature operation by overcoming some drawbacks of the ITB modes brings us a step closer to the development of technologies for the realization of nuclear fusion energy.”

Dr Young-Seok Park of Columbia University who contributed to the creation of the high-temperature plasma said, We are honoured to be involved in such an important achievement made in KSTAR. The 100 million-degree ion temperature achieved by enabling efficient core plasma heating for such a long duration demonstrated the unique capability of the superconducting KSTAR device, and will be acknowledged as a compelling basis for high performance, steady-state fusion plasmas.”

Looking Further

The KSTAR research centre also conducts experiments on a variety of topics. One of them is ITER research, which is designed to solve complicated problems in fusion research.

The KSTAR will share the success of its research of the artificial sun operation and other experiments this year in the IAEA Fusion Energy Conference which will be held in May. The ultimate goal for the artificial sun is to maintain a temperature higher than 100 million degrees for three hundred seconds by 2025.

KFE President Suk Jae Yoo said, I am so glad to announce the new launch of the KFE as an independent research organization of Korea. The KFE will continue its tradition of under-taking challenging researches to achieve the goal of mankind: the realization of nuclear fusion energy.”

How Important is Darkness to Us?

As you may have heard, China announced that their artificial Moon will be launched in 2020. No more night! Yes, they’re abolishing full darkness. It’s a bad idea but not a new one.

The idea is an enormous 80 foot mirror placed into a geosynchronous orbit where it will remain glued to the same spot in the sky. From its altitude of 22,300 miles it will focus sunlight onto the city of Chengdu in southwestern China. That city of 14 million people will then be continually illuminated. No more night.

Russia actually launched such an artificial moon in 1999 to illuminated parts of Siberia, but the satellite failed soon after launch. So this idea is definitely workable, and not even particularly high-tech since the giant mirror needn’t be of telescope quality to do the job.


No More Night

The question is, should we abolish full darkness?

The proposed Chinese space mirror would look like an intensely brilliant dot, about 10,000 times brighter than the planet Venus. It will appear eight times brighter than the full moon, but all that luminosity will not be in a discernible disk like the real Moon, but instead be concentrated in a dimensionless point like a star. The resultant dazzling spot would be uncomfortable to look at directly, and possibly hazardous to the eye.

But it’s true: street lights would no longer be necessary. It would end up being far less expensive then installing  thousands of street lights and supplying the power to operate them.


A Really Bad Idea

Why is this a monumental bad idea? Beyond the aesthetic and astronomical concerns, and the zoological hazards to birds and other nocturnal animals, there are the biological issues.

Humans have evolved to where we need periodic darkness.  (No, humans were created that way)

The natural nightly cessation of brightness creates a vital cycle of melatonin production, and scientists have found that women who work the graveyard shift or those whose bedrooms have even small degrees of incessant nocturnal illumination have increased breast cancer rates. Indeed, a lack of full darkness has been found to be the surest of all breast cancer causes.

So, let’s just make sure that this fake-Moon business never happens here.

Now why is the sky dark at night?


This NASA patent describes an artificial sun since the 1960s, suddenly fueling the belief that the two suns we see in different videos could be much more than fiction.

artificial sun

We have to admit that whenever I found a “two suns” video I usually ignored it because of the high probability that it was a lens flash or another cheap trick. But now, it makes us think Could it be as real as people say it?

Patents from NASA in 1961 and 1966 where a system of artificial lighting would be approved made us reconsider the theory of the “two suns”.
This patent, which certainly has more than five decades, is about creating an artificial sun capable of illuminating most, if not the entire globe, in the same way that our REAL Sun does now.

The concept was considered “a novel lighting system” designed to create “a single virtual source” of light. But why would we need an artificial reflector powered by our own Sun? What applicability does this have?

It would consider that such an innovative invention would be of practical utility for its users or beneficiaries, but this aspect has been skillfully avoided by this NASA patent that only focuses on its functionality. Let’s look at some of these issues addressed in the document:

In a solar simulator system, it is desirable to provide means to vary the intensity of the illumination in a relatively wide range without changes in the spectral distribution of the illumination, so that the simulator can be used to simulate sunlight and moonlight .

In other words, the artificial reflector would have to be adjusted in a way that simulates not only the sunlight, but also the natural light of the earth and the moon.

It has been almost six decades since the patent was created, and it seems that this idea has already become a reality. There is abundant evidence that now shows artificial suns of a non-natural hexagonal shape during sunrise or sunrise.

The real sun is also visible in the background, and generally has much smaller proportions than the artificial one. The whole concept is based on the schemes of this NASA patent: the real sun drives this huge reflector into the sky from behind, allowing sunlight to reflect through it.

We could swear it was a lens flare unless you’ve seen this patent available from NASA. It has a hexagonal shape and larger than normal dimensions.

see – The mysterious UFO Cube (the size of the Earth) captured returning to the Sun

The reason why they are doing these experiments is purely speculative for now, but in addition to the common idea that the government is poisoning us through all layers of the environment, which by the way is a bit confusing because we are all residents of thePlanet and without discrimination exposed to the same environmental threats, some have suggested that the government is transforming the Earth to make way for a new hybrid species.

With the rise of artificial intelligence, neural bands, CRISPR gene editing technology available on a large scale and many dreams of becoming cyborgs, the idea mentioned above is beginning to take shape.

Humans have made possible what was considered impossible decades ago, and while the globalist agenda advances, it seems that they are giving way to a new species of humans, a hybrid species improved with technological improvements and with a mind that no longer belongs to them.

But this is pure speculation, until it becomes real and the masses will no longer have the power to overthrow the evil that has been done. No doubt we can draw many conclusions, but none of them could answer us the true objective of the artificial sun of NASA .. Or yes?


The city of Chengdu in China is aiming to launch an artificial moon, or "illumination satellite," in 2020.

It might sound like a plot cooked up by a cartoon villain, but a city in southwestern China is aiming to launch into space an artificial moon that could replace streetlights by bathing the ground in a “dusk-like glow.”

City officials in Chengdu said they plan to launch the so-called illumination satellite in 2020, the Chinese news site People’s Daily reported. The audacious plan was announced by Wu Chunfeng, chairman of the Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co., a private company, at an Oct. 10 event in Chengdu.

In an interview with China Daily, Wu said the satellite’s mirror-like exterior would reflect sunlight down to Earth, creating a glow about eight times brighter than the moon. The artificial moon, which he said would orbit about 500 kilometers above Earth, could save $174 million in electricity from streetlights.

Not much else is known about the illumination satellite, including its size or cost. It’s also unclear whether introducing another light source in the sky would adversely affect the local population or wildlifeperhaps by disrupting the daily light-dark cycle.

This isn’t the first time the idea of putting new light sources into space has been floated.

In the 1920s, a German physicist named Hermann Oberth proposed the idea of using a space-based mirror to reflect light to Earth. Nothing came of that idea. But seven decades later, on Feb. 4, 1993, Russian cosmonauts released a small experimental mirror from the Mir space station, Bruce Hunt, an associate professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin, told NBC News MACH in an email.

Dubbed Znamya, the mirror briefly reflected a beam of light to Earth that was two to three times as luminous as the moon, The New York Times reported at the time. A few days later, the mirror burned up as it re-entered Earth’s atmosphere.

But despite the long interest in such ideas, Hunt, who specializes in the history of science and technology, is dubious of the Chinese project.

I don’t think space mirrors would be very practical because I doubt they could be reliably steered to light just desired areas, they would contribute a lot of light pollution (astronomers would be very unhappy with them), and even then they would not provide enough light to obviate a demand for ground-level lighting,” Hunt said. “Space mirrors strike me as a solution in search of a problem.”

William Schonberg, a professor of civil engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, said he’s intrigued by the idea — but raised similar concerns.

What happens when the ‘light’ burns out (i.e., the reflector degrades to where it no longer functions)?” Schonberg told MACH in an email. “On the environmental side is the concern about light pollution. Will residents of the illuminated city no longer be able to see the night sky?How much spillage will there be to neighboring cities, and how will that affect their ‘night vision’?”



To be put on an orbit within 500 km from Earth, the illumination intensity is expected to be eight times of the moon light

The artificial or man-made moon is a satellite carrying a huge space mirror, which can reflect the sun light to the Earth.

According to plans, the verification of launch, orbit injection, unfolding, illumination, adjust and control of the man-made moon will be completed by 2020, the daily reported, quoting Wu Chunfeng, head of Tianfu New District System Science Research Institute in Chengdu in China’s southwest Sichuan province.

Three man-made moons will be launched in 2022, it said.

By then, the three huge mirrors will divide the 360-degree orbital plane, realising illuminating an area for 24 hours continuously,” Wu said.

The reflected sun light can cover an area of 3,600 sq km to 6,400 sq km, and the illumination intensity is expected to be eight times of the moon light, he said.

The moon orbits the Earth about 380,000 km from the Earth, while the man-made moon is expected to be put on an orbit within 500 km from the Earth, the state-run China Daily reported.

About concerns that the man-made moonlight will interrupt the normal day-night cycle of animals and plants, Wu said the light intensity and illumination time can be adjusted and the accuracy of illumination can be controlled within scores of meters. When a man-made moon is orbiting, people can only see a bright star in the sky.

Man-made moon is especially useful in civil area.

Using man-made moon to illuminate an area 50 sq km can save 1.2 billion yuan of electric charge,” Wu said. “It can also illuminate blackout areas when natural disasters such as earthquake happen.”

Earlier experiments

The US and Russia have explored man-made moon, hoping it can bring convenience to night-time activities.

In the 1990s, Russia carried out an experiment called Banner, testing the idea of using a mirror to reflect the sun light to Earth. The mirror failed to unfold in space and the experiment was halted.

China, Russia, the US, Japan and the EU are all striving to make technological breakthroughs on space energy application,” Wu said.


World China China Plans to Launch an ‘Artificial Moon’ to Light Up the Night Skies Sorry, the video player failed to load.

The night skies might soon have company: Chinese scientists are planning to launch an artificial moon into orbit by 2020 to illuminate city streets after dark.

Scientists are hoping to hang the man-made moon above the city of Chengdu, the capital of China’s southwestern Sichuan province, according to a report in Chinese state media. The imitation celestial body — essentially an illuminated satellite — will bear a reflective coating to cast sunlight back to Earth, where it will supplement streetlights at night.

Scientists estimated that it could be eight times more luminous than the actual, original moon. It will also orbit much closer to Earth; about 500 km (310 miles) away, compared to the moon’s 380,000 km (236,000 miles).

But the ambitious plan still wouldn’t “light up the entire night sky,” Wu Chunfeng, chief of the Tian Fu New Area Science Society, told China Daily. “Its expected brightness, in the eyes of humans, is around one-fifth of normal streetlights.”

Wu estimated that new moons could save the city of Chengdu around 1.2 billion yuan ($173 million) in electricity costs annually, and could even assist first responders during blackouts and natural disasters. If the project proves successful, it could be joined by three more additions to the night sky in 2022, he said.

But much more testing needs to be done, Wu said, to ensure the plan is viable and will not have a detrimental effect on the natural environment.

We will only conduct our tests in an uninhabited desert, so our light beams will not interfere with any people or Earth-based space observation equipment,” he told the Daily.

China’s space goals are not unprecedented. In the 1990s, Russia experimented with using an orbital mirror to reflect sunlight on some of its sun-deprived northern cities, according to the New York Times. The project was abandoned in 1999 after the mirror failed to unfold and was incinerated in the atmosphere.

In January, American firm Rocket Lab launched an artificial star into space, the Times reported. But scientists criticized the “Humanity Star,” as the reflective mini-satellite was dubbed, for contributing to artificial light pollution and cluttering in Earth’s orbit.


Fake Sun : Solar Sun Simulator finally unmasked Pt 1

uNo One / i 213K views /  Dec 09 2017


Synlight is the largest collection of film projector spotlights ever assembled in one room, and scientists in Germany are turning them all on at once in the pursuit of efficient and renewable energy.

This experiment involving the world’s “largest artificial sun” is taking place in Jülich, a town located 30 kilometers (19 miles) west of Cologne, and it was designed by scientists from the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The device features 149 industrial-grade film projector spotlights, and each one boasts roughly 4,000 times the wattage of the average light bulb.

When this artificial sun is turned on, it generates light that’s 10,000 times as intense as natural sunlight on Earth. Swiveling the lamps and concentrating them on one spot can produce temperatures of around 3,500 degrees Celsius (6,332 degrees Fahrenheit), which is three times as hot as the heat generated by a blast furnace.


Every day, a huge amount of energy hits the Earth in the form of light from our Sun. While we do already have ways to harness the Sun’s energy, such as through solar panels, much of it still remains untapped. Scientists hope their experiments with Synlight will illuminate ways to tap into that wasted energy.

The experiment is not without its risks and costs, however.If you went in the room when it was switched on, you’d burn directly,”  Bernard Hoffschmidt from the DLR told The Guardian. To avoid that, the experiment will take place inside a protective radiation chamber. This artificial sun consumes a vast amount of energy when powered up, as wella four-hour operation eats up as much electricity as a four-person household would use in a year — so it is expensive.

This will all be worthwhile, however, if the Synlight experiment leads to more efficient and cleaner energy for the future. The first goal is to determine the optimal setup needed to use sunlight to power a reaction that produces hydrogen fuel a potential clean fuel source for cars and airplanes. “We’d need billions of tonnes of hydrogen if we wanted to drive [airplanes] and cars on CO2-free fuel,” Hoffschmidt explained. “Climate change is speeding up so we need to speed up innovation.”

In the future, the facility may be used to test the durability of space travel parts when blasted by solar radiation, so not only could Synlight help us deal with our energy crisis here on Earth, it could help us explore worlds far beyond our own, too.


World’s largest artificial Sun rises in Germany

Germany isn’t exactly famous for its sunshine, so to help with the country’s commitment to investigating renewable energy, the German Space Center (DLR) has constructed the world’s largest artificial Sun. Making its public debut today in Jülich, North Rhine-Westphalia, the three-storey “Synlight” electrically-powered sun lamp will be used for various research projects, including developing processes for producing hydrogen fuel using sunlight.

The Sun is one of the greatest potential energy sources available, but developing new technologies to exploit this potential can be hampered because our parent star is a very finicky worker. It refuses to work at night, dislikes cloudy days, doesn’t do as well at higher latitudes, and in some parts of the world it disappears entirely for months at a time.

To provide a more reliable and controllable substitute, scientists and engineers have built their own artificial Sun for laboratory work. Instead of using a giant ball of fusing gas 93 million miles away, DLR has built a huge device that works like a backwards parabolic reflector.

Where a more conventional spot lamp uses a single powerful light source focused by reflecting it off a parabolic mirror, Synlight is a giant parabola made up of 149 7-kW xenon short-arc lamps capable of delivering 11 MW/m2. These can be adjusted to focus on a single spot measuring 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 in) in three different test chambers, two of which are exposed to 220 kW of solar radiant power and the third to 280 kW. At maximum setting, the device can deliver 320 kW, or 10,000 times the normal solar radiation experienced on Earth’s surface, and temperatures of up to 3,000° C (5,400° F).

According to DLR, these extremely high temperatures are necessary to carry out research on processes that use the Sun to produce solar fuels like hydrogen. Though hydrogen is seen by some as the green fuel of the future because it leaves behind only water when it burns, producing it requires large amounts of energy, which usually comes from burning fossil fuels. DLR hopes the Synlight will help researchers to find a more efficient way to split water into hydrogen and oxygen using the Sun. This has already been accomplished in the laboratory, but has yet to be scaled up to industrial levels.

In addition to solar-generated hydrogen, DLR sees Synlight has having other applications, including studies of how materials age under extreme UV rays.

Synlight fills a gap in the qualification of solar thermal components and processes“, says Dr Kai Wieghardt. “The scale of the new artificial Sun is between laboratory systems like DLR’s high-performance lamps in Cologne and the large-scale technical facilities such as the solar tower here in Jülich.”

The artificial Sun cost a total of €3.5 million (US$3.77 million), most of which was provided by the state of North-Rhine Westphalia, with BMWi contributing €1.1 million (US$1.2 million).

This week, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute for Solar Research turned on the Synlight project, an array of 149 huge spotlights. Together, these spotlights converge on a single 20-by-20 centimeter (8×8 inch) spot onto which it projects 10,000 times the amount of solar radiation that would have normally shined on the surface. The researchers call it the largest ‘artificial sun’, though we shouldn’t confuse it with fusion energy projects which would be more deserving of the title.

A huge lightbulb

The setup is comprised of xenon short-arc lamps, which you’d typically find in a modern cinema, arranged in a honeycomb structure in Juelich, just 30 kilometers (19 miles) west of Cologne. When the lights are turned on, an immense amount of power is concentrated on a small surface, just enough to heat it in excess of 3,000 degrees Celsius.

Unlike the sun, however, this project doesn’t create energy. Rather, it eats it with a voracious appetite. Turning on the lights for four hours consumers as much electricity as a four-person household does in a whole year. It might help generate energy, though.

The goal of the project is to better understand solar radiation dynamics to find out how to maximally exploit solar energy. For instance, a setup similar to Synlight only comprised of mirrors could be used to generate renewable liquid hydrogen, a fuel which emits zero emissions when combusted. Right now, 99% of all man-made hydrogen is derived from fossil fuels through an energy and carbon intensive process called methane reforming.

Of course, hydrogen by itself is not without problems. Storing it can be a hassle because it’s the lightest and smallest molecule and just escapes most containers. It’s density is very small which can also be problematic. However, combining it with carbon monoxide results in eco-friendly kerosene for the aviation industry.

Once scientists master hydrogen production with Synlight, they can scale the system tenfold — all powered by the sun, not electricity, this time.

The DLR labs are busy with other interesting projects. One of them involves creating artificial comets made of water, rock dust, and soot, all locked in a vacuum chamber that, of course, contains an artificial sun.



Science: Space Mirror

Father of the science of astronautics, according to its devotees, is Hermann Oberth, 59. While teaching school in Rumania in 1923, Oberth published The Rocket into Interplanetary Space, a book explaining many principles that enthusiastic space men still use in their projects to fly to the moon. Herr Oberth is now a rather seedy father of space flight. Gaunt and brooding, he lives in a dilapidated ancestral castle near Nürnberg.

Once in a great while Herr Oberth gets dressed in his Sunday best and returns to the subject that gave him his years of glory. Last week, speaking at Düsseldorf to the Society for Space Research, he showed that his imagination is still vigorous.

A rewarding project for space men, said Oberth, is to set a gigantic mirror revolving on an orbit thousands of miles from the earth. It should be about 100 miles in diameter.* Made of shiny metal foil reinforced with wire, it would spin slowly around a space residence at its hub. Since nothing in a space orbit has any weight, a slight amount of centrifugal force would keep the mirror expanded.

Such a mirror, said Oberth. would have many useful properties. Floating most of the time outside the earth’s shadow, it would shorten the earth’s night by lighting its dark side. It would bathe cold countries in reflected sunlight, making them productive and habitable. If war should start on the earth below, the “aggressor” (the party not in control of space) could be handily incinerated by making the mirror concave to concentrate its beam.

Other space ideas of Oberth:

¶ A space proving ground where nuclear weapons could be tested without damaging the earth.

¶ Space study rooms for scientists “where everything is quiet, and there is no disturban

An artificial sun? I guess the Chinese don’t give a sh!t about climate change. Who and how would one go about doing impact studies of such a thing? 😲😲😲

Wtf? Why is nobody talking about this? It happened on the 11th & could be seen all the way to the Philippines, which saw 2 suns in the sky. Because the earth is flat, otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to see it. Just saying.Forget mother nature let’s create an artificial sun! A nuclear fusion reactor in china has set a new record for sustained high temperatures after running five times hotter than the sun for more than 17 minutes, according to state media. The experimental advanced superconducting tokamak (east), known as an “artificial sun”, reached temperatures of 70,000,000c during the experiments, the Xinhua news agency reported. The ultimate aim of developing the artificial sun device is to deliver near-limitless clean energy by mimicking the natural reactions occurring within stars which are just lights of plasma. “the recent operation lays a solid scientific and experimental foundation towards the running of a fusion reactor,” said gong xianzu, a researcher at the institute of “plasma” physics, yes they know the sun, moon & stars are all plasma lights, of the Chinese academy of sciences, who led the latest experiment. The east project, which has already cost china more than $1 trillion, will run the experiment until June.

The enormous machine, which looks like an insect’s eye, uses 149 lamps to simulate sunlight, making it a handy tool for testing things like solar panels or generating clean energy. Scientists threw the switch on the world’s largest artificial sun on Thursday, which happened to be the birthday of the fellow who designed it. “I had tears in my eyes today,” says project manager Kai Wieghardt of the German Aerospace Center. “It’s my baby, and it’s really the first time in my life that something I drew in my notebooks has been built in the same manner.”The $3.8 million array stands 50 feet tall and fills a three-story building in Juelich, Germany. Scientists can focus the 350-kilowatt honeycomb of xenon short-arc lamps on an area as small as 61 square inches and create 10,000 times the solar radiation that would otherwise shine on that spot. And the temperature on that spot? Up to 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit.

That kind of power comes in handy when you want to test the effect of solar radiation on things like satellites. But what really excites scientists are the possibilities for using that intense heat to split water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce a clean source of energy. Of course, the scientists monitor their work with cameras, because the intense light and heat would kill a human

God’s people do not have anything to fear.  God is in CONTROL and the time when the Sun and Moon go dark is the time of the ingathering of God’s people and the JUDGEMENT OF THE UNBELIEVERS!!
Mark 13
24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Joel 3
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain:

Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.  The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.
