“Our goal is to achieve sustainable fusion,” Zhang told The Morning Post. “the cones can be mass-produced and loaded as bullets in a machine that will rotate and fire like a Gatling gun.”

Researchers 70% of the Way towards Fusion Ignition

Scientists think the laser briefly ignited a chain reaction they call plasma burning, FutureTimeLine claims. In plasma burning, the fusion reactions get hot enough to trigger more fusion reactions. The hope is to use the laser to trigger a self-sustaining fusion reaction that can generate power.
