The world's largest laser canon, which is composed of 192 giant laser beams, and can simulate the energy of the sun's core, is ready for action.
Scientists at the National Ignition Facility in California spent $3.5 billion US in an effort to produce a clean form of energy via the fusion of atoms instead of splitting them.
Plans to aim the laser canon at a tiny hydrogen pellet will be the largest experiment of this magnitude and is scheduled for 2010.
Implications - The world's largest laser will definitely be used for an array experiments, the main purpose has to do with nuclear weapons.
