Brune, Alum Co-Author Paper on Probing Star-Like Conditions at National Ignition Facility

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.

“Stars are giant thermonuclear plasma furnaces that slowly fuse the lighter elements in the universe into heavier elements, releasing energy, and generating the pressure required to prevent collapse. To understand stars, we must rely on nuclear reaction rate data obtained, up to now, under conditions very different from those of […]
