Hottest Temperature on Earth: 3.6 Billion Degrees in Lab!


Recommended Posts

Scientists have produced superheated gas exceeding temperatures of 2 billion degrees Kelvin, or 3.6 billion degrees Fahrenheit.

This is hotter than the interior of our Sun, which is about 15 million degrees Kelvin, and also hotter than any previous temperature ever achieved on Earth, they say.

They don't know how they did it.

When i hear storys like this it makes me wonder how the hell they contain such tempertures :shock: i know they have good tools for the job but i do get concerned by it... Maybe iam just being daft but it seems if we go too far we will end up createing something we shouldnt.

Interest though, good find Steve.

James :sunny: :laugh:

They contain them fairly easily because they only last a fraction of a second. Same kind of thing as the particle accellerators. The energies released are very very short lived.

Thats true Astroman but something could go pop in a par sec! :laugh:
