NAHA, OKINAWA PREF. – Laser-like rays were beamed at U.S. military aircraft flying near the Futenma base in Okinawa five times since July 2014, an official with the U.S. Marine Corps said. Continue reading
Being that energy or power concerns would be of no concern on the moon thanks to an abundance of Helium-3, this is quite possibly conceivable in theory that the moon could somewhat be ‘weaponized’.
A war not with nuclear-tipped missiles but with destructive laser beams, travelling at the speed of light and reaching their targets 50,000 times faster than today’s missiles
A new cold war seems certain to start within the next few decades, waged not on Earth, but in space.

In 2010 the Chinese military was reported to have started tests on its most ambitious missile project, the DF-21A, an anti-ship ballistic missile.
