Hi.. We use 3 main methods to get the temperature nice and hot! :
1. The plasma can conduct electricity, like a copper wire. When you put an electrical current through a wire, it gets hot. The same is true for a plasma!
2. We can send microwaves into the plasma, a lot like the microwaves in your microwave oven at home!
3. We can fire a high energy beam of particles into the plasma. As these particles collide with the particles inside the reactor, they transfer there energy and heat the plasma particles up.
Hope that answers your question!

What form does energy take when it has been released as heat and then cools down?
Is there anyway to harness either the heat from the earths core, or the heat produced by the decay of radioactive
You say you like heating up to 10 million degrees. 1. Are you talking about heating plasma or something else? and 2.
If you have created any theories, have they been disproved and how?
What is a radio signal? and how do you change them and see how they react to things?
