Ignition Red Team Review: The NNSA charged a Red Team review to "Determine the efficacy of NIF for ignition and credible physics-scaling to multi-megajoule yields for all methods of ignition." Several years of work and review will culminate in a written report detailing supporting evidence, technology assessment, and uncertainty quantification. 

Academic Community Forum: NNSA invites interested academic partners to a panel discussion addressing the Ignition 2020 findings to date, the outstanding fundamental science questions of ignition, and the role of contribution by the academic scientific community in future directions.
