Death Valley Ain't Got Nothing On Us

Some scientists working with the world's largest X-Ray generator have created the hottest temperatures ever on the planet Earth : 3.6 BILLION (with a B) degrees Farenheit.

What makes this story really interesting:

1. When the machine created the heat, it actually put out more energy than was put in, which could lead to groundbreaking work in energy sources like fusion.

2. The scientists who did it...don't know how they did it.
