US National Ignition Facility edges closer to fusion with new record

Scientists at the energy centre managed to fire 2.15 megajoules of energy into a target chamber

Laser beams fusion power one step closer

A team of researchers at a US lab are one step closer to making nuclear fusion a viable source of power, after getting a surplus of energy from a fusion reaction. The team at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) in California (pictured) used 192 beams from one of the world’s most powerful lasers to heat […]
