This piece of writing is bang on target ! The team at the National Ignition Facility in Lawrence Livermore are now approaching delivery of "Scientific Proof of Principle" for driving a fusion burn with lasers and achieving a net energy gain. This huge step, which will be done with a "single-shot" approach, will open the way to the next stage, in which a test-bed laser fusion reactor can be built which will give us all the knowledge we need to build the first industrial scale prototype laser fusion energy plant. The team who will build that test bed are now nearly ready, and aiming to hit that point just as NIF achieves its objective. Then they will be ready to pick up the baton and go forward. The project which will do this is a European-based international collaboration called HiPER Laser. Look at www.hiper.org and see their movie, which really tells the story properly ! This has to be humanity's energy source for the long term !
