I was watching a Discovery Channel show that I downloaded today called “Ultimate 10 Military Machines” and it featured this crazy plane called the Airborne Laser (ABL) for short (see right).
It flies around above the clouds in friendly skies looking for enemy missles. It then locks onto them with a bunch of low power lasers and then uses a bigass chemical powered laser that’s 1000 times as powerful as the sun to basically burn a hole in the missle.
How futuristic and crazy is that?!
You can find out more about it at Boeing’s website.
