NIF is the most energetic laser in the world, allowing access to high energy densities ranging from Mbars in solid state to Gbars in implosions.  This enables the study of relevant physics spanning planetary cores, inertial confinement fusion, and supernovae. A summary of experiments and future capabilities will be presented.
