Lasers and railguns bring us closer ot a Star Wars future


You know how we would always bitch about how it’s taking so long for lasers to be deployed on the battlefield?  Turns out we were just being a wee bit impatient, because the US Navy’s developed a Duke Nukem type Railgun and researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California have put together a laser that’s nearly capable of doing enough damage to be useful in battle.

I’m still waiting on them to start working on a light saber though.
