NIF Reports Partial Achievement of Nuclear Fusion: The Real Thing Planned For 2013

The National Ignition Facility is a 3-stadiums-wide building, and a part of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, whose main interest is to make nuclear fusion possible. On Sep. 29, the $3.5 billion laser machine inside the NIF has proved the theory was right by firing its 192 laser beams on a tiny frozen hydrogen pellet, producing the fusion of some tritium and deuterium atoms.
