The U.S. construction of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is complete and researchers are preparing to start the first experiments aimed at recreating conditions at the heart of our Sun, BBC News reported. Scientists hope the experiments will demonstrate the feasibility of nuclear fusion, a process that could offer abundant clean energy. They will begin by focusing 192 giant laser beams on a tiny pellet of hydrogen fuel, in hopes they can show that more energy can be extracted from the...

New evidence for existence of controversial energy source Researchers are reporting compelling new scientific evidence for the existence of low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), the process once called "cold fusion" that may promise a new source of energy. One group of scientists, for instance, describes what it terms the first clear visual evidence that LENR devices can produce neutrons, subatomic particles that scientists view as tell-tale signs that nuclear reactions are occurring....
