Trick, scientists are hoping to strengthen these magnetic fields. SPARC researchers are trying to create the world's most powerful superconductor magnet that will enable the world's first effective signaling generator to increase its efficiency by increasing its volume and cost.
"Before the development of magnet, we think it's really three years," said Denis Utte, director of the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center in March, "and give you a big step forward to answer the question you can: magnetic plasma Energy? "
Construction of magnets requires a new level of high temperature superconductors and it is a great idea that SPARC is a study. The superconductors are materials that do not electricity without electric resistance, so there is no loss of energy. Catch is that they do so, superconductors should be very cold, maintaining the temperature below the critical barrier.
The SPARC team claims that they have found a way to "high" temperature superconductors in the form of "firms" or "ribbons" that enable the merger, but they should still be incorporated in appropriate size magnets and are not suitable for existing Fusion Machines .

After creating an unprecedented execution magnet, the next step will be to develop and build a long-term SPARC Fusion Reactor aimed at producing more energy than it consumes. MIT and CFS researchers were waiting for SPARC 2025, with a modest output between 50MW and 100MW, which is nearly enough to power a small city.
But SPARC is just experimenting. The idea is that his demonstration will lead Construction of the oil production plant phase pilot factory and in turn, New class commercial merger power plants.
Other experimental reactors of this type have already been developed around the world, but the climate change problems are rapidly approaching, the SPARC crew's work will dramatically accelerate technology integration.
According to MIT's online project page, the SPARC reactor will be successful to demonstrate that timely energy can be developed to create a carbon free power to combat climate change.
The question of billions of dollars is of course. MIT scientists believe that a sustainable aviation pilot plant will be built and used for about 15 years.
