Technicians work near the 140-ton aluminium sphere covered with metal plates, measuring 10 metres in diameter and is 10 centimetres thick, at the Megajoule Laser project, currently under construction at the CESTA (Centre d'Etudes Scientifiques et Techniques d'Aquitaine) in Le Barp southwestern France, July 27, 2010. Scientists will be able to simulate nuclear tests using amplified energy from 176 lasers which is directed at a target located inside the sphere, thus reproducing nuclear fusion under temperature conditions some 100 times higher than those found at the centre of the sun.
