Scholar's Advanced Technological System Chapter 1569 | morning-star-ll
It was not just the guests sitting in the Heart of Asia.
At the same time, people in the entire Northern Hemisphere also saw the bright light hanging in the night sky.
On the outskirts of the Yangtze River Delta City Group, Lili was standing on the balcony with her hands on the windowsill, looking at the sky eagerly.
Last night, the guy named Academician Lu sent her a message saying that if she could stand on the windowsill at seven oclock tonight, she would see some tremendously beautiful fireworks.
Although it was almost seven oclock, there was still no movement in the sky. However, Lili still believed that Lu Zhou would not lie to her.
The time was getting closer. She raised her small hand and rubbed her sore eyes. She felt a little sleepy when suddenly a bright curtain of light appeared in the air.
Looking at the light show, the little girl was stunned for a moment. She then jumped up excitedly; the sleepiness in her heart was instantly wiped out.
"Tail, Tail, come out and see!"
Hearing the sound from the balcony, Tail, who was wearing an apron, came out of the room. She said softly to Lili, "Whats wrong, Lili?"
"There, there." She blinked with her big innocent eyes as her small hand that was like a white lotus pointed at the sky. The little girls face was filled with joy and excitement as she said, "Look, look, its an aurora!"
Looking up at the colorful light curtain in the sky, Tail was slightly stunned. A smile gradually appeared on her face.
"Its so beautiful"
She couldnt perfectly understand what beauty was, yet deep in her heart, she still couldnt help but wish for this moment to last forever
A small restaurant on the outskirts of Jinling.
Like most dormant people, Director Li didnt care about this weird festival of fusion ignition day. Usually, at this time, he always gathered his dormant homies and found a place to drink and talk trash together.
He planned to call Lu Zhou and Wang Peng this time, but unfortunately, Lu Zhou went to the Heart of Asia as a special guest, and Wang Peng could not come because of work. In the end, the table only had two lonely old people.
After two glasses of wine, Director Li started talking about the grand occasion of controllable fusion. The fellow who was drinking with him suddenly narrowed his eyes and raised his head, looking at the light in the sky.
Lifting his head leisurely, Director Li glanced in that direction and replied straightforwardly, "I dont know"
The fellow sitting across the table laughed and teased, "Damn, you were the leader of the research and development department a hundred years ago, yet you dont know anything now."
"Go ask Lu Zhou." Director Li raised his head and glanced up at the sky. Smacking his lips, he suddenly said, "Speaking of which, today is fusion ignition day."
"Yes, whats the matter?"
"Its probably something made by Academician Lu again." Director Li smiled and said in a natural tone, "Aurora appearing in a temperate zone. Unless this is a once-in-a-lifetime miracle, this is probably not a natural phenomenon."
While the entire Pan-Asian Cooperation was in a jubilant festive atmosphere, the second-generation controlled fusion experimental reactor base, which was far on the moon, was busy and nervous.
The ignition had been successful!
A huge amount of energy was projected onto Earths atmosphere through a high-powered laser array. The gas molecules ionized by the laser formed a bright aurora on the edge of the atmosphere. This was the gift of East Asia Energy to the people of the world.
However, although they had completed the historic ignition, no one dared to stop their work at hand and pause to celebrate.
After all, for a mature experimental reactor, ignition was only a threshold.
They had to maintain the stable operation of the reactor.
Standing in front of the console, Xie Tian stared at the data on the holographic screen. He stood motionless, looking like a sculpture. Even though the parameters of the reactor were maintained within a stable range, he did not dare to relax.
After all, the plasma running in the reactor had a temperature of tens of billions. Even if they were to go outside the solar system for another ten or twenty light-years, they might not be able to find a flame with such a terrifying temperature.
If it werent for the restraint of the magnetic field, compressing the terrifying energy into a baseball-sized range, half the moon would be swallowed by the energy.
Let alone Guanghan City, which was right next door.
"It seems that the reactors situation is pretty good." Walking to Xie Tians side, Jia Siyuan glanced at the changing parameters on the holographic panel and said, "You go and rest for a while, Ill take over."
Xie Tian shook his head, not daring to leave the holographic panel for a moment.
"The experiment will be over for a while. Its not time for me to rest."
It took East Asia Energy a whole year to represent the compatriots on Earth and win the trust of the citizens of Guanghan City. If he failed this piece of trust, not only would his conscience be upset, but the sense of responsibility in his heart would torment him.
Jia Siyuan knew what his old friend was thinking, so he stopped persuading him and just stood with him.
The staff sitting in front of the console not far away suddenly spoke.
"The proportion of fuel in the reaction chamber has dropped to 13.7%. Do you want to open the gate and continue to introduce fuel?"
The moment he heard these words, the tight expression on Xie Tians face suddenly relaxed. His heart relaxed as well.
So far, the first round of the ignition experiment was half completed.
When the fuel in the reaction chamber dropped to 10%, the temperature of the reactor core would gradually drop to a safe value, and the fusion reaction would naturally stop.
The next task was to shut down the reactor.
This was not a challenge. Xie Tian stared at the parameters on the holographic panel and decisively ordered.
"Connect the heat sink to the core heat conduction port! Turn on the core trap and switch to the preparation mode! Weaken the confinement magnetic field in batches!"
The staff sitting in front of the console methodically operated the instrument, shut down the reactor, and conducted the remaining heat to the ground through the heat transfer rods.
Looking at the temperature indicator that had returned to a safe value, Jia Siyuan, who was standing next to him, had a happy smile on his face.
"Its finally done."
"Yeah." Xie Tian also smiled as he said in a relaxed tone, "After we report the good news to Academician Lu, we can have a proper celebration!"
After all, this was an epoch-making moment.
From this moment onwards, human civilization would have truly controlled the power of fusion and collected the richest treasure in the Earth-Moon system.
Everyone standing here had made history.
Even though not everyones name would be remembered by history, this did not prevent them from being proud of their achievements.
Not to mention, today was an extraordinary day
