Can man create a sun?

Tune into the latest GPS special, ‘Moonshots,’ on CNN this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.

The sun is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit and4.6 billion years old. So what if we could somehow bring this blazing ball of energy down to Earth to power our world?

Fareed hears from Ned Sauthoff, who is leading the U.S. contribution to the 35-nation ITER project that is hoping to pull off one of the most audacious feats of physics ever witnessed: creating a star.

Watch the video for more.

    Google and Microsoft have joined a growing chorus of businesses that oppose Marriott's attempt to block guests' Wi-Fi hotspots in their hotel rooms.

    I'm so glad Mitt Romney didn't win , we would be paying for the air we breath .

      Whoa. I bet that upset a lot of homeless people this holiday season.

        After being downtown searching for homeless people and only finding a few (usually there are many), I have decided to congratulate the Homeland Security Department doing a fine job rounding-up men who could work but choose the lazy homeless lifestyle instead and throwing them all in forced labor camps built since 9/11. Obviously they weren't built for terrorists as Bush and Congress said.

      Rupert seems to be using Rx prescription drugs that interfere with sleep and so cause addicts to dream during the daytime.

    It's no big deal. We are 12.5 million light years away from earth. That distance for you E arthLiens is equivalent to the distance from Cincinnati, Ohio to Toledo, Ohio.

        Why didn't you recommend she abort? "Interferes with lifestyle" is one of the top reasons females give for wanting an abortion. Right up there with "Interferes with education".
