Can world's largest laser zap Earth's energy woes? (1137457) writes | more than 4 years ago

1 (1137457) writes "Scientists at a government lab here are trying to use the world's largest laser — it's the size of three football fields — to set off a nuclear reaction so intense that it will make a star bloom on the surface of the Earth.

If they're successful, the scientists hope to solve the global energy crisis by harnessing the energy generated by the mini-star."
