Full title: Scientists building world's most-powerful 'SUPER LASERS' that can RIP holes in space
I would not be posting this but there is a video with Michio Kaku verifying some of the article. His vid is talking about weather modification with these Laser tools...

The Chinese are saying, if all goes according to plan.... which is to produce a 10 petawatt shot..... they will basically make CERN obsolete and be able to rip a hole in the fabric of space.. Humm hope we all don't get sucked into the newly created space hole.. Probably not going to happen as far as the sucking stuff goes ...But interesting if that sucking sound you hear in the future is the planet earth..hahahah


The team has already made history with its earlier invention, the Shanghai Superintense Ultrafast Laser Facility has already set records.

The machine is small enough to fit on a tabletop, and contains a disc, the width of a frisbee, which is made of titanium-topped sapphires.

But this small device, by pushing light through the crystal and refracting it off a series of mirrors and lenses, is able to produce unbelievable amounts of power.

The laser set records in 2016 when it produced a pulse of 5.3 petawatts (million billion watts).

Why can't we leave stuff alone? Why, as Humans, do we always need to "rip holes" in stuff?

Hrm.

What ? That doesnt even make sense....in any aspect of the term.

Sounds like it needs a pyramid for some real power.

More like Element 0

I don't think anyone has used the word 'weaponise' yet

Oops there it is

Certainly sounds like it's capable of ripping a fair hole in non-space (matter) too.

Europe is making a big laser too called the Extreme light infrastructure, they are also planning on tearing a hole in space to see whats on the other side. It comes online in 2019.

It may not be possible to tear a hole in space, but if it is, WCGW. I doubt anyone knows until it happens.

Hey Darwn, watch this...

Wouldn't that create a black hole, or a worm hole or something?

Perhaps it opens the gates to hell and that's what the Hopi Prophecy was talking about

I guess they think the world would be boring if they didn't try it. Sh1t, I'm still worrying about what CERN are up to, now this?

Don't be misled by the huge numbers like 5 petawatts for example, because that power is released in a trillionth of a second amounting to a total energy input (watt.hours) that's really very doable. The trick here is releasing all that stored energy in such an almost unmeasurably short burst.

Says its 'table top' big, I wonder how big the power supply is?

It can't rip holes into the next dimension, thats like saying 2D 'flat landers' can invent a laser to shoot 'up'.

There was the bet before the Trinity shot in New Mexico, too. Edward Teller was giving odds the atmosphere would be 'set on fire'.

This reminds me of something. Could it be the beginning of a weaponized space station?

What do they shoot the lasers at? What stops a laser of that power? Surley they cant just go shooting lasers into space? a reply to: 727Sky

You will thank for this the day we have an asteroid coming straight to us.

This sci-fi-sounding process would involve using the highly concentrated beam of light to tear electrons and antimatter positrons from space, to prove Albert Einstein's famous E=mc2 theory is true.

Li explained what the significance of this is: "It would mean you could generate something from nothing."



The part you didn't quote explains the process slightly better than the sensational 'ripping a hole in space'

Another Source:

 Li and colleagues intend to start building a 100-PW laser known as the Station of Extreme Light (SEL). By 2023, it could be flinging pulses into a chamber 20 meters underground, subjecting targets to extremes of temperature and pressure not normally found on Earth, a boon to astrophysicists and materials scientists alike. The laser could also power demonstrations of a new way to accelerate particles for use in medicine and high-energy physics. But most alluring, Li says, would be showing that light could tear electrons and their antimatter counterparts, positrons, from empty space—a phenomenon known as "breaking the vacuum." It would be a striking illustration that matter and energy are interchangeable, as Albert Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation states. Although nuclear weapons attest to the conversion of matter into immense amounts of heat and light, doing the reverse is not so easy. But Li says the SEL is up to the task. "That would be very exciting," he says. "It would mean you could generate something from nothing."

The hole will probably be minuscule in nature and remain open for a very short time period. So no run away Strangelet scenario or black hole of doom porn type situation is going to befall humanity down to such experimentation.
