We do, or rather USA does. Oddly enough Swedish television aired a
program last night which is one of a series. In it they showed the
next generation cruise missile and their laser weapon which was
referred to as the death ray.
It can be used from a plane to knock down enemy missiles immediately
after launch so that they fall on the enemy's territory. It can also
be used to surgically attack specific targets.
They reckon that it will be in general use in three years. They also
intend to have a demonstration within the year (I think) which will
demonstrate conceptually the possibility of lasers being used in outer
The laser weapon
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
