Application of radiative fluid dynamics scaled from the laboratory to astrophysics
Since its inception, the laser has found numerous applications beyond anything that could have been foreseen at its creation. With scientific and technological advancements, lasers are now capable of delivering a large amount of energy in very short timescales: giving us the ability to form interesting states of matter such as plasmas. As it became possible to create such material on earth, it made sense to consider applications this could be used for.
