I would have paid a lot more attention in school if they taught quantum theory like this.

This planet, GJ 504b, is about the size of Jupiter, but has several times its mass. It's actually so far the smallest planet that's ever been directly imaged with a telescope, rather than being observed by eclipsing its parent star.

Researchers at a laboratory in California say they've had a breakthrough in producing fusion power with a giant laser. The success comes after years of struggling to get the laser to work and is another step in the decades-long quest for fusion energy.

Omar Hurricane, a researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, says that for the first time, they've produced significant amounts of fusion by zapping a target with their laser. "We've gotten more energy out of the fusion fuel than we put into the fusion fuel," he says.

The reason this is so cool and important is what this implies. That there is probably another extremely large object orbiting our sun so far away we can't see it. All we can see is the effect it has on Sedna, as it's immense mass causes a gravitational pull strong enough to pull Sedna's orbit into this weird shape.
