Caption: Nuclear fusion laser research, Russia. This is the Luch module of the ISKRA-6 project, which is using lasers to initiate and study nuclear fusion. The ISKRA-6 project totals 128 lasers. The Luch module was built from 1998 as an extension of the existing ISKRA-5 system. Lasers can be used to create the high temperatures and pressures needed to initiate nuclear fusion. Nuclear fusion would be a much cleaner source of energy than nuclear fission, which creates radioactive by-products. This research is being conducted at the Russian Federal Nuclear Center and the All-Russian Experimental Physics Research Institute. Photographed in 2005, in Sarov, in the Nizhny Novgorod region of Russia.
