Sky News: Scientists Recreate the Nuclear Fusion Reactions Found Inside Stars

Despite staggering differences in mass and scale -- the sun (left) is approximately 10^38 times more massive and 10^13 times larger -- NIF implosions (right) are being used to recreate the conditions found in the deep interiors of stars so that they may be better understood.

“Scientists recreate the nuclear fusion reactions found inside stars: Powerful lasers are used to create the high temperatures and pressures found inside stars 40 times more massive than the Sun,” reports Sky News about research co-authored by Dr. Carl Brune, Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Ohio University. Scientists have, […]
