A look at an ultrafast laser system in action at Washington University in St. Louis' Ultrafast Laser Facility.
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill was in St. Louis Monday as part of her state-wide energy tour.
The Democratic senator participated in a roundtable discussion at Washington University about the nation's energy future. At the table were some of Missouri's energy industry leaders, along with university administrators and researchers.
McCaskill says their feedback reinforced for her the need to keep all energy options on the table.
