Will Directed Energy Weapons be the Future?
What is faster than the fastest hypersonic missile?, well a beam of light, microwaves or subatomic particles but they are impossibly small and have almost no mass compared to a projectile. However, if you have enough energy you can make a weapon that works at the speed of light and in theory can shoot down anything projectile weapon we have now.
So why don't we have phasers like in Star Trek?, in this video we look at Directed Energy Weapons and what they can do now and in the future.
