Lasers for Defense! 

More good news. A joint US/Israeli project to develop a ground-based laser anti-missile system has successfully destroyed a long-range rocket in mid air. Nautilus is a joint project between Northrop-Grumman and several Israeli companies, and show a lot of promise as a potential point-defense against missiles, aircraft and artillery. As a button I bought years ago at an SF convention says, ""Speak softly and carry a megawatt laser."
