US Army Trying To Harness Weapons Grade Lightning
Rev_13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Zeus may have had it right after all. The god of thunder uses lightning to strike his opponents down and now the United States Army is trying to harness the power of lightning for its own purposes. They are experimenting with laser-induced plasma channel that basically uses a laser as a pathway to shoot bolts of plasma down the stream to the target. The laser-guided lightning weapon could precisely hit targets such as enemy tanks or unexploded roadside bombs, because such targets represent better conductors for electricity than the ground.
We never got tired of the lightning bolts zapping our simulated (targets), said George Fischer, lead scientist on the project at the U.S. Armys Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey. During the duration of the laser pulse, it can be putting out more power than a large city needs, but the pulse only lasts for two-trillionths of a second. I bet it is enough to fry an enemy combatant though.
