    Here’s another article, from optics.org:

    NIF ‘tantalizingly close’ to ignition breakthrough

    No new estimates of when ignition will be achieved, only a repetition of what Mike Dunne said back in January. However, unnamed NIF officials say the project is “75% of the way” towards achieving ignition, whatever that means. I would guess they’re using number of shots as the metric, but who knows?
