Giant Laser heats up

I’m always a little unsure when scientists start messing around with this kind of power but a team in the USA have finished creating a huge physics experiment aimed at recreating conditions at the heart of the sun. The idea behind this is to demonstrate the feasibility of nuclear fusion, a process that could provide us with an abundant clean energy supply. For it to work it must show that more power can be extracted from the process than it takes to run the 192 laser beams that will be focusing on a tiny pellet of hydrogen fuel.

The experiment will begin in June 2009 but the first significant results are not expected to be seen until 2010-2012. Lets hope it’s successful and we can all say goodbye to high fuel prices at the pumps!
