As if saying the world trade centers weren't blown up by space lazors (mounted on the ISS of all things) is equivalent to saying that the government
didn't do it. If you want to paint with a broad brush, try this on for size: you believe odd things and contribute to giving the truth movement a bad
name (along with Judy Wood).
Just take a look at the ISS, and read up about space, and about lasers. I'll discount particle beams entirely, because at *plausible power levels*
they don't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting to the ground with enough energy to do damage. Lasers are inefficient- about 15% efficient at
best. All the rest of the power is lost as heat. In space, that's a problem. You can't just add cooling fins to things, you have to radiate all your
heat as IR radiation. It would take a megawatt or twenty to do anything meaningful at ground level from space. That means it takes tens or hundreds of
megawatts worth of power generation, and radiators capable of radiating most of that.
The ISS could not fit either of those, and in the case of radiators, it certainly, *observably and verifiably* doesn't have nearly enough to support
any beam weaponry. QED. It's just an international scientific research station and colossal semi-waste of money.
Higher, more damaging wavelengths don't penetrate atmosphere well. Blue visible light, for instance, is readily scattered by nitrogen, so no much
reaches us directly, and that's why the sky is blue and the sun looks yellow instead of green (as it sort of kind of does in space). Ultraviolet
doesn't reach the ground very much at all; most is absorbed by the atmosphere. Enough gets past to burn people, but it doesn't take much to do that.
X-rays and gamma rays can't currently be made into lasers, because we don't have anything that acts as a good X-ray mirror. IR is probably the only
And that all raises the question of where did they shoot the laser? At the top of the building? At the side? Certainly it wasn't at the side, because
blasting semi-reflective aluminum sheeting and glass with a megawatt or ten of energy is going to create a literally blinding flash that burns out the
recording mechanism of every camera pointed at it within a few miles, and at least temporarily blind everyone in a similar radius. And I don't see
what good shooting the top would do; the top of the building wasn't on fire, for one, and it doesn't really provide good access to load bearing
