Lasers Shooting Stuff
I posted about lasers last week and mentioned in passing that the US military was working on a giant plane-mounted laser to shoot down missiles. As if on cue, this video was released, showing infrared views of that very laser doing that very thing!
And on a related note: good news for mosquito haters out there. The very same technology used to take down missiles is being used on a smaller scale to blow mosquitos out of the sky!
