Z Machine Sets Unexpected Earth Temperature Record - The Z Machine, running at Sandia National Laboratories, created a plasma that reached a temperature in excess of two billion Kelvin, making it the hottest thing ever in the history of the Earth and, for a brief time, hotter than the interiors of stars. The Z Machine experiment purposely creates high temperatures by focusing 20 million amps of electricity into a small region further confined by a magnetic field. Vertical wires give the Z Machine its name. During the unexpected powerful contained explosion, the Z machine released about 80 times the world's entire electrical power usage for a brief fraction of a second.
