U.S. Navy + Sci-Fi = Laser Weapons

Sometime in 2014, the U.S. Navy has plans to install  the LaWS (Navy Laser Weapon System) on combat ships.  The laser is capable of obliterating small boats and drones, firing warning shots, and blinding spy cameras destroying  their sensors.  Though LaWS hits its targets at the speed of light, the laser will not be as useful for faster moving targets such as incoming missiles and jet fighters, .

Christmas Eve, December 24 1914, an eerie quiet stole over the dangerous front line.  The commonplace sound of hissing, cracking and pops from machine gun fire and artillary, was replaced by German voices drifting over the frozen battlefield, "Stille Nacht. Heilige Nacht. Alles Schlaft, einsam wacht."  The tune was hauntingly unmistakeable to the British troops entrenched close by the enemy line.  "Silent night,  holy night.  All ... Read more
