Scientists in Germany have been working on a project for the last year, which would replicate the brightness and intensity of light from the sun, without actually needing the sun. The world’s largest artificial sun has been constructed in Germany and could be used to create useful hydrogen in the future.
German Scientists Create an Artificial Sun
The German Aerospace Center has sponsored and funded the project, making it a success up to this point. The artificial sun has been tested, and its effects are amazing to everyone, including the engineers on the research team which created it. With one hundred forty-nine xenon lamps, the immensely bright artificial sun can vaporize water in only a few seconds.
Calling the project “sunlight, ” the lamps recreate the intensity of light that we get from our natural sun. All light, to do this, must be bright enough and reflected onto one singular spot. All water that evaporates turns into hydrogen and oxygen, making it possible for the gasses to become useful fuels.
A test of the lamps took nearly 20 minutes and displayed the true strength and power of the light. The 45 by 52-foot mechanism spans the entire room in which it is held. Temperatures can reach a peak of 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a little bit more than half as hot as the sun. All the light is focused on a small 20 by 20-centimeter area. Only a small amount of hydrogen can be made from the lamp, so it is doubtful that the lamp will be able to serve any practical fuel uses shortly.
Solar radiation is extremely dangerous if the engineers get caught up in the brights, it could be much worse than deer in headlights. Needing 350 kilowatts of energy per hour to run, the most expensive electrical appliance on the European continent, it generates more of an electrical bill, as opposed to useful hydrogen. But, researchers till hope that there is a way for the lamps to serve as a renewable energy source in the future.
