Planes With Frickin’ Laser Beams

From cNet:

By the end of this year, the Air Force plans to conduct a first, fully loaded test flight of its Airborne Laser, a jumbo jet packed with gear designed to shoot down enemy missiles half a world away, at the speed of light. The ABL also packs a megawatt-class punch–it’s not exactly your garden-variety laser pointer.
