Next step to Fusion

Forget the crappy wind and solar energy. Fusion is what will really revolutionize the world. Right now it is still science fiction, but I think one day it will be real. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has created the worlds most powerful Laser. It can heat up hydrogen to the temperature of the sun, enough to allow it to start fusing into helium and releasing huge amounts of energy.
"Very shortly we will engage in what many believe to be this nation's greatest challenge thus far, one that confronts not only the nation but all of mankind -- energy independence," said lab director George Miller.

All I can say is... cool.
