    Stupid title. Why didn't they just say fusion experiment?

    But that is a new record.

    Is that degrees F or degrees C? The article didn't say.

    Phys.org gives Celsius( though the Scientitst probably used Kelvin, but what is 273 degree offset in that oder?)

    Kudos for the Korean scientists to manage 20 seconds!

    The next question is: did the plasma quench itself for whatever physics is going on or did they just stop at 20 seconds to limit damage?
