Airborne Laser from Boeing Company
It's the largest laser beam in the world and it's being built in the Bay Area.
The National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will

goal? To recreate fusion -- which powers the sun and some nuclear bombs -- perhaps
harnessing a new source of clean energy for the 21st century.
