Wow 50kW. Amazing, thanks for that.
Approximate power: 50,000 Spyder lasers :)
I actually got to work with the guys making the hohlraum at General Atomics for this project.
It was pretty cool we where working with tolerances that are just outstanding. Heck we drilled a whole in the middle of a piece of hair using are C.N.C. machine yep a real drill not laser or edm. That was a crazy little mill and lathe they have there.
It is an incredible project with insane amounts of precision involved.
It will be very interesting to see what happens once they get ignition.
Clean high power output but will the technology be too costly?
