On June 15, 2021 the American scientific magazine New Scientist made a very interesting news item, which many overlooked and became the center of attention thanks to the efforts of blogger Joseph P Farrell. The message is as follows:
The most powerful magnet in the world is being shipped to France to be installed in the core of the ITER experimental fusion reactor. It is hoped that ITER will prove that it is possible to create fusion energy on an industrial scale by replicating the process observed in the center of our Sun.
The magnet, known as the central solenoid, comes in parts and will be 18 meters high, 4.2 meters wide and weigh about 1,000 tons when fully assembled. With a magnetic field strength of 13 tesla, it will be about 280,000 times stronger than the Earth’s own magnetic field. Because of this, the structure, which houses the central solenoid, will have to withstand forces twice as strong as the thrust of the space shuttle’s takeoff.
The magnet will consist of six modules, each containing 43 kilometers of spiraling niobium-tin alloy superconductors. Once these coils are installed, they will be primed with 3,800 liters of epoxy resin and shipped to the ITER construction site in France from General Atomics’ plant in California. The first module goes out this month, and the next will follow in August.
ITER will be the largest fusion reactor when it is completed, with the current ultimate goal being 2025. Engineers working on the project aim to make it the first reactor that will produce more energy from fuel than is needed to sustain a fusion reaction — the plan is to create 500 megawatts of usable energy with 50 megawatts of input power.
Officially, ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international experimental fusion reactor project that began construction in 2007 at the Cadarache nuclear center in the south of France.
The creation of a thermonuclear reactor is, of course, a very good thing, and such a device can solve all the energy and environmental problems of mankind, producing energy literally from nothing. However, a magnet, which is 280 000 times stronger than the Earth’s own magnetic field – it’s already on the production of electricity is not very similar, and conspiracy theorists have a lot of bad suspicions, the first of which – some kind of geoengineering, intentional or accidental attempt to somehow change the magnetic field of the planet. To what it can lead – it is frightening to even imagine.
The second direction of conspiracy theorists’ gloomy thoughts is the V’s series, which began to gift mankind first with miracle vaccines, then with a reactor of some “blue energy”. And what a coincidence that some futurological reactor in France is being erected against the background of vaccinations and a world pandemic.
However, what scares the conspiracy community the most is that the magnet strength of the ITER will be much greater than the combined magnet strength of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and all other “colliders”. Although ITER stands for some kind of international reactor, the Latin word iter means road, path. But if glorious physicists are building a path in Cadarache, then who or what will come to our world along this path? Will it happen in 2025, when ITER is completed, or will it come somewhat earlier?
Unfortunately, we don’t know the answer to these questions yet, but we are following the developments.
