Recreating conditions inside stars with compact lasers

Extreme conditions inside stars can only be recreated in the laboratory through fusion experiments with the world’s largest lasers, which are the size of stadiums. Now, scientists have conducted an experiment that offers a new path to creating such extreme conditions, with much smaller, compact lasers that use ultra-short laser pulses irradiating arrays of aligned nanowires.
