Photos of NIF by Jake Stangel

Jake Stangel - NIF

Here are a NIF-ty* bunch of photos by Jake Stangel of the National Ignition Facility and the people who work there. The facility is an experiment built to explore the science behind inertial confinement fusion, one of the two pathways towards the development of net-gain fusion energy (the other approach being magnetic confinement fusion). It’s a beautiful set of photographs that shows some of the workings behind-the-scenes of an experiment that big.
