Nice. Now this is some heavy science shit! I love it, thanx for the Fox science king.

RE: New laser gets closer to using fusion as a viable energy souce.
Thank for this post KC.

This is such a big deal and people don't even realize it.

We have a duty to worry about our future offspring on earth. People don't even realize that this is the future of alternative energy (hopefully).

If you understand simple physics then you understand that fossil fuels will not always be there. It takes millions of years for oil/coal to get where it's at. And we are sucking it out at a matter of centuries.

I hope this is a step to ensure my daughters future and my offspring.

Which reports 1000mW

I don't know how much hundreds of megawatts means other than greater than 200mW

Wish I new what the theoretical output would be.

RE: New laser gets closer to using fusion as a viable energy souce.
Concerning alternative energy sources, what do you think would be the biggest one to watch out for? I've been thinking it's been fusion for a while now.
