Americans can sleep slightly safer tonight thanks to the successful testing of the Airborne Laser Testbed. The laser successfully shot down a ballistic missile off the coast of California a few days back. We’re saved!
Don’t believe me? Check out the pictures up top. They show the missile being hit and then breaking up, thanks to the Airborne Laser Testbed. Hopefully this kind of tech gets the funding it deserves. America spends a lot of money on useless war tech, but this idea sounds like a keeper. America, f*ck yeah.
