LAURA KNIGHT-JADCZYK AND JOE QUINN
Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
How Powerful is it?The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) Beamlines project is an EU-funded lab being developed with experts from around the world, including Lawrence Livermore lab in the US, and being built in the Czech Republic.
HAPLS is designed to ultimately generate a peak power greater than 1 petawatt (1015 or 1 quadrillion watts).
Each pulse will deliver 30 joules of energy in less than 30 femtoseconds (trillionths of a second or 0.00000000000003 seconds) - the time it takes light to travel a fraction of the width of a human hair.
The laser system will deliver these pulses of light at 10 hertz (10 repetitions per second).
