People's Daily: China to build "artificial sun"

The Poeple’s Daily reports that,

A full superconducting experimental Tokamak fusion device, which aims to generate infinite, clean nuclear-fusion-based energy, will be built in March or April in Hefei, capital city of east China’s Anhui Province.

The device will reportedly be built for USD 37 million — 15 times less than the ITER Tokamak project — although at a smaller scale. The question begs, however, is China developing into a hot spot for cost-effective research and development?
