Where have I seen this before?

From Monday's NY Times:  California's new National Ignition Facility where 192 lasers will combine in an attempt to create the core of a tiny star and its thermonuclear energy...

...and the chamber of Cerebro, the mutant detecting technology of the X-Men movies.

The NIF facility cost $3.5 billion.   They probably could have borrowed the set from 20th Century Fox for a lot less.
