    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Wow 50kW. Amazing, thanks for that.

    Approximate power: 50,000 Spyder lasers :)

    Well just wait till you see the 500 terawatt laser at the National Ignition Facility.
    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.

    That's really about 200 different lasers focused together, right?

    Yes, well 192 to be precise but even then each one of those is pumping out a lot of light.
    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?
