Euroallied superlaser tear the fabric of spaceThe European Union has agreed to provide $ 900 million to build world's most powerful laser, which can break the very fabric of space.

New project called Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) involves placing three powerful lasers in Romania, the Czech Republic and Hungary. The decision to place a fourth laser will be made until next year, but with a high probability of honor to take on its territory valuable scientific tool will get the UK. Completion of construction and initial laser is scheduled for 2017.

The project will be an important step towards creating a more powerful laser — Ultra-High Field laser. It will be based on 10 lasers, twice more powerful than lasers ELI. Laser beams are combined into a single point, as supergun Death Star in "Star Wars."

At the point where the rays come together Ultra-High Field laser, scientists can create conditions that are not even in the center of the Sun. Superlaser for one trillion seconds will give petawatt power of 200 — 100 thousand times more than at the moment is in the world.

With the new laser, scientists hope to finally learn why the universe contains more matter than we can see, that is to find dark matter. Extremely powerful laser beam has to "kick" from the vacuum of space, virtual particles that appear in our universe for very short periods of time. Ultra-High Field laser will be able to literally "boil" the space of virtual particles and delay long enough. The laser beam is split the virtual particles and will not allow them to quickly annihilate, so scientists can study the properties of the vacuum.

The success of a new research project can be incredible. Superlaser can revolutionize a variety of fields, from medical imaging, cancer treatment, methods of acceleration of radioactive decay, to new energy technologies and space travel.
