More on Lasers: "Warfare at the Speed of Light"

You had mentioned a couple posts back that laser missile defense still seemed too difficult to make work, but was still worth a try. I agree, but actually the technology is more promising than you might think. There is a quiet arms race going on right now, trying to develop cheap solid-state lasers (as opposed to big expensive chemical lasers) which are powerful enough to shoot down missiles or be used as weapons.
