Army shoots lightning down laser beams.
In what sounds like a bizarre episode of Strawberry Shortcake meets The Avengers, I read of the Army’s efforts to create just such a weapon.
It could be used against (surprise) people and vehicles, but it could also be used to destroy unexploded ordinance. That could be a life and limb saver in war zones, something there is no shortage of.
Like most things, the weapon carries in itself it’s own greatest threat: it could destroy itself. But they’re working on that.
Here’s a link to the story at Gizmag.
