Finally, I can sleep at night,
, knowing that there is a big laser out there that could completely erase me from existence.

500-trillion-watt laser, wow! That would be great for blasting Roids.


Asteroids of course.

You never know man. If it can happen in movies it must be real!

But really, there has to be some sort of use other than the fact we "can" make em that big.

never mind its blasting capability, just think how much information that thing could transport.
possibly every bit of info we have on earth as of today in all fields of industry.
amazing. (and i thought my giant magnifying glass was cool)



note: this mag glass melts alkali dust into glass beads in seconds! gets to about 2500F.

What is the power of that thing in ANTS PER SECOND?

I never even thought about that.


So... since I'm dumb... anyone know how much energy that actually is? Such as, in relation to a city per hour... or how much energy a dam produces. Basically, how much does it take to run it over a period of extended time?

There are several examples of Petawatt lasers in existence.

Best Term Ever

But seriously how are they gonna get all this power to zap things with? And how much will this thing cost to run even if for one "shot" of the laser. I would also like to hear about the range this thing has.

Try every ant on the planet in .5 of a second obliterated from the face of existence.

you know that some rogue dictator is going to get their hands on this, and they're going to carve their name and likeness on the moon...

though it would be incredibly stylish

This laser isn't for shooting down anything, or blowing up anything.


This is for energy research into Fusion, a possible future energy source.
