Greg Balestrero, CEO PMI Institute (2002-2011) and Sustainability advisor speaks with Dr. Edward Moses of the National Ignition Facility in this keynote for International Project Management Day 2013. The National Ignition Facility is a laser-based research initiative to focus the intense energy of 192 giant laser beams on a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel to incite nuclear fusion ignition which would help make significant contributions to national and global security and could lead to practical fusion energy. Combining these two thought leaders from the perspective of sustainability and the science of nuclear fusion will make for a dynamic insight into the future possibilities of energy.
