Chu and Terminator wrestle with nuclear fusion

Tom Trevor sent me this amusing article in FoxNews:

Giant laser reactor unveiled in California.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Steven Chu had to show up when a new "The National Ignition Facility" (NIF) - attempting to maintain thermonuclear fusion by 192 giant lasers in a sphere of radius of 5 meters - was officially launched in Livermore (near San Francisco).

Well, politicians simply like to look important. At any rate, I wish them (to the experts in the exciting project, not to the Big Cheeses) a lot of good luck - they may need it. ;-)
