NIF researchers have been focusing on characterizing the x-ray drive created in test targets. Recent tests at the NIF have shown that the NIF laser beams can be effectively delivered and are capable of heating the targets to the radiation temperatures needed to drive fuel capsules to ignition conditions.

The Mythbusters must be closet car fans, because the hour-long show on the Discovery Channel seems to be producing more and more experiments involving automobiles than ever before. Their latest again involves fuel efficiency, this time testing if a dirty car is more fuel efficient than a clean one because of the golf ball-like dimpling effect.

Like Mark Twain said of his misapplied obituary, the report of the death of the hydrogen fuel cell is an exaggeration. And no wonder: Take the universe's most abundant element, hydrogen, pass it and air through an on-board fuel cell, and produce electricity to power our cars.
