Our friend Robert Shults has a new book:

Austin based photographer Robert Shults grew up with a passion for sci-fi movies and outer space exploration, and was drawn to physics as photographers and physicists share in common the same basic tools — light, space and optics. In 2009, Shults was introduced to the Texas Petawatt Laser facility, an unparalleled research laboratory in Austin, Texas that at the time produced the most powerful laser pulse in the world. When he witnessed the laser in action he knew it had to be the subject of his next photography project.

The Superlative Light (Daylight Books) presents a layman photographer’s awestruck tour of this hallowed facility located in the bowels of the University of Texas where an elite group of scientists conduct experiments that are impossible to imagine — daily releases of a force that constitutes the brightest light known to exist in the entire universe. The Petawatt laser can produce, for a fraction of a second, more power than the entire U.S. electrical grid.
