Lawrence Livermore National Labs NIF by CBS Sunday Morning

This is an excellent piece describing inertial laser fusion and NIF. However, NIF is under scrutiny in the scientific community in terms of its ability to achieve ignition timely given its sparse budget for civilian power development. NIF is primarily a NNSA project meant for weapons stock pile stewardship experimentation. More public visibility needs to be directed on fusion and more funding needs to be made available for civilian fusion power development science research and ultimate development. Dr. Ed Moses of the National Ignition Facility Laser Inertial Fusion Project at Lawrence Livermore National Labs is interviewed by CBS Sunday Morning as part of the CBS Sunday Morning NIF tour.
