"The yield was significantly greater than the 
energy deposited in the hot spot by the implosion."

I am cautiously delighted. For the importance of 
this milestone. For how long it's been coming.

And because it's in the family. This was achieved at LLNL.

• Where the competing approach, magnetic fusion, 
had been pioneered by my mother's boyfriend when 
I was a kid. Which I was part of for five years 
at the National Magnetic Fusion Energy Computer Center.

• In a project led by our former pediatrician's husband.

Hot damn. So to speak.
