New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

Several potential issues concerning laser-beam propagation thorough the LIFE target chambers are addressed. It is found that the absorption due to inverse Bremsstrahlung limits the gas density to approximately 2 [micro]g/cc of xenon gas. This value is within the gas density estimated to be required to keep the first wall heating to an acceptable level.
