CEA/Cesta or simply Cesta (French: Centre d'études scientifiques et techniques d'Aquitaine; English: Center for scientific and technical study of Aquitaine) is a French research facility (CEA, Direction of Military Applications) dedicated to the design of nuclear weapons.
The center will host in the future the Megajoule laser (LMJ), which will enable French nuclear scientists to validate models of nuclear explosion without having to conduct nuclear testing. The LMJ is the French equivalent of the National Ignition Facility.
