I'm no expert, but I have done a bit of research into fusion reactors. My guess is that the small glowing pieces are microscopic flecks of carbon being dislodged from the graphite tiles that are used to protect the wall of the reactor from the intense radiation. This is a high-speed video, so they seem to float without falling because gravity at this rate of playback is near-nonexistent, and there is no atmosphere to slow them either. As they impinge on the tightly confined layers of fast-spinning fusing gas, they are excited to high levels of black-body radiation and ablated quickly, the fusile gas whipping atoms off of their surfaces and in some cases fracturing the particles.

Description of the original video said: "[...]the videos of 1 000-20 000 frames per second revealed formation of the plasma column, its shaping and refilling by the gas puffing, and also a plasma-wall interaction resulting in dust particles propagating across the vacuum vessel of the tokamak."
So I guess it's dust particles burning away in the plasma.

1. They got old and NASA was afraid to lose more crews like Columbia
2. The government doesn't care about science anymore unless it gives them a strategic advantage. They don't want space telescopes, they want spy satellites. They don't want an international space station, they want a fucking Death Star so the rich can go up there with some human DNA to clone slaves for themselves and blow the rest up.

It's literally bouncy accelerated electrons from the ionized plasma escaping the magnetic confinement. It's one of the problems on tokamak reactors. Scientists are attempting to use argon to slow them down, diminishing the damage to the reactor walls.

Men fusion as energy source is still so far away...
Even if we could reach the self catalyst state, stabilize the reaction and make it self sufficient and stable... Even so there would still be a huge gap between that and power generation. Our reactors Currently are "research only". They don't produce electricity, they are aimed at research only.
Even if you manage to bottle up the fusion reaction and then produce unlimited heat... How can that be turned into electricity? Electrical induction is our most efficient way to generate electrical potential, and it basically revolves around spinning a conductor inside a magnetic field. It requires motion, Kinect energy. A spinning wheel. All the technology behind a fission reactor, for example, comes down to this: a spinning turbine. The heat from the fission is transferred to the water, the steam produced generates pressure that impulses the engine of a turbine much like internal combustion engines.
But with fusion reactors... The reaction happens at 100 million degrees, all the challenges revolve around isolating the surrounding area of the reactor from the fusing plasma. How will the heat be transferred, if not irradiated... The obvious solution of a water pipe passing through the middle of the donut, or having the reactor submerged entirely, but either way the heat would have to trespass the walls of the reactor before reaching the water source, how that can be attainable without irredeemably damaging the reactor... The superconductors rings that must be kept at near absolute zero temperature to produce the magnetic field for the confinement...
We might really never reach fusion at all.

quantum entanglement, just entangle some of the particles that are in the plasma with some other particles sitting in a water tank. You don't need to entangle every particle in the plasma, if it's going to be at 100 million degrees, just a very small fraction of them, and that should be enough to pipe out energy past the wall of the reactor.

Also, the original concept was that they were supposed to be reusable space trucks, ferrying astronauts and cargo to space weekly

They were "reusable" only if you ignore the fact that they had to be half disassembled and refurbished after each mission, and the boosters were one use throwaways

As for cargo and astronauts, it's cheaper and safer to send them up in capsules at the top of a rocket, also they increased the size of the thing, meaning it was too heavy for many intended payloads

And weekly? Well at the peak they went up to 9 a year

Depends on the density of the mixture, and by extension the ratio of the two gasses used in the mixture.
You'd otherwise see the exact same effects; a mixture rich in SF6 creates a deep voice and a mixture rich in helium creates a high-pitch voice.

I think it's certainly about density.

Sounds are vibrations, helium is more dense at room temperature because the H2 molecules are more compact within that amount of space. As opposed to oxygen, nitrogen, or carbon dioxide.
