Laser Fusion Experiment Delivers An Energetic Burst of Optimism

Scientists have come encouragingly close to reproducing the power of the sun – albeit with just a speck of hydrogen for just a fraction of a second. Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory reported Tuesday that they were able to ignite bursts of fusion power of more than 10 quadrillion watts by using 192 gigantic …
