Bringing Star Power to Earth: Is Fusion Energy in Our Future?

October 6, 2010

Jeff Wisoff is deputy director of the National Ignition Facility and Photon Science directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Prior to joining LLNL, Dr. Wisoff was a NASA astronaut and a veteran of four Space Shuttle missions.

At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, researchers are developing a fusion-based system known as Laser Inertial Fusion Energy, or LIFE, to address this challenge. LIFE builds upon technology advances achieved in the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at LLNL, which is now operational and rapidly progressing toward the demonstration of fusion ignition.
