Well, this isn't some guys home project. The worlds most powerful laser is ready to start a reaction the same as in a stars core.
"By the end of this year, the National Ignition Facility will try to focus nearly 2 million joules of ultraviolet laser energy at a tiny target at
the tip of this pencil"
The most exciting part is the scientist believe he will get more power out then he put in.
Can anyone say free energy?
"NIF's ultimate goal is to reach fusion's "ignition threshold", where fusion reactions generate more energy than the laser pulse contains. This
will require delivering lots of energy in a very short time to heat and squeeze a tiny hydrogen target into such a hot, dense mass that the nuclei
fuse, releasing energy."
