this is an impresive achivement
fusion of tritium, hydrogen and deuterium atoms to make energy
the biggest lazer array ever cool

The experiments followed closely on the heels of NIF's first integrated ignition experiment on Sept. 29, which demonstrated the integration of the complex systems required for an ignition campaign including a target physics design, the laser, target fabrication, cryogenic fuel layering and target positioning, target diagnostics, control and data systems, and tritium handling and personnel and environmental protection systems. In that shot, one megajoule of ultraviolet laser energy was fired into a cryogenically layered capsule filled with a mixture of tritium, hydrogen and deuterium (THD), tailored to enable the most comprehensive physics results.

a good source for a video explination of how this works and why this may do away with nuclear power

cool science involves really big lazers

Nice find

S and F

Hopefully, any day now, we will have some scientist make a huge mistake, and figure out how Fusion works at room temperature in a sustained manner.

I mean just the number of probabilities says we are do for something good any day now.

well acording to some undisclosed sources
the manufacturing of palladium has been tainted to stop cold fussion efforts
there is now a new process that ensures the contamination is not present
as the pureity of the palladium reaches the required 99.98% puraity
the experiments are getting closer to 120% efficencey

add that to the megs resurch and there are alot of techs that were written about 10 years ago
that is now coming to fruition

we can have clean free energy we just need to undo the bad press
