After successful recommissioning in autumn 2022, the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator fusion device at Germany's Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) has achieved some significant breakthroughs. In 2023, an energy turnover of 1 gigajoule was targeted, but researchers have now achieved 1.3 gigajoules. Moreover, a new record for discharge time was achieved, with the hot plasma maintained for eight minutes.
