The NIF Project--under construction in Livermore California is the largest laser in the world. The facility is the size of a sports stadium. The laser is very powerful, equal to 1 thousand times the electric generating power of the US. Each pulse is very short- a few billionths of a second. This will be used for energy research, fusion science, astrophysics.
