This is a really cool videos of a new laser missle defence sytem in action..
Its amazing that this thing can target an 85 centimeter-thick ball bearing, traveling 50 meters per second,
Perhaps the most terrifyingly cool bit of information out of the company's press brief (released in mid-December and largely unreported in American media) is this tidbit: Several experts gathered to witness as "a massive, 15 mm-thick [.6 inches] steel girder was cut through at a distance of 1,000 metres [3,000 feet, about .6 of a mile]."

Well looks like light sabers might become a reality! And the fact that it has the ability to cut through steel pretty easy, this type of technology could have a few different applications in space operations. Pretty cool stuff.. but sadly, it'll be bought out by governments and used for nefarious reasons.
