В Германии зажгли искусственное Солнце (11 фото) German researchers from the Center for Aviation and Cosmonautics (DLR) in the city of Jülich launched an experimental light installation – “artificial sun”, whose power in terms of magnitude of the concentrated light flux exceeds all available light installations in the world. The applied value of such a project lies in the creation of technology for using concentrated light flux for the safe production of hydrogen.

The power of the generated luminous flux is 10 thousand times the intensity of the stream of sunlight falling on the Earth, while the temperature on the plate reaches 3,500 ° C. The head of the DLR laboratory, Bernard Hoffschmidt, warns that when it enters a concentrated light stream, a person burns out instantly.

The installation itself, which cost the laboratory $ 3.8 million, is too costly both in monetary terms and in energy consumption (4 hours of operation of the unit spent an amount of electric energy comparable in magnitude with the consumption of electricity by a family of 4 people over of the year). 8caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f68caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f68caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f68caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f68caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f68caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f6
