Default World's most powerful laser to tear apart the vacuum of space

Real or just lies?
World's most powerful laser to tear apart the vacuum of space - Telegraph

(2 sources^)


Quote:
The Ultra-High Field laser will be made up of 10 beams, each twice as powerful as the prototype lasers, allowing it to produce 200 petawatts of power – more than 100,000 times the power of the world's combined electricity production – for less than a trillionth of a second.

At the focal point, the intensity of the light will produce conditions that are so extreme they do not exist even in the centre of our sun.
Now that's a laser I want to play with

Interesting Idea but I fail to see how it can separate ghost particles?

By the way, If the focused point creates conditions that aren't found in our sun, won't that just obliterate anything in it's path?

How can you hope to gather data from a melted computer?

Thats pretty awesome. I would love to see the size of the capacitors on that baby. I bet it would leave a footprint much larger than the LHC though...

I agree with most of what you said, and to be honest the U.K by itself needs a couple of trillion to get it back on its feet.

I was just thinking that can't the LHC etc etc do / be capable of those things already?

In fact many top drug advisors have suggested decriminalizing most drugs apart from heroin and all the really bad ones, then as you said.. quality controlling it, taxing it and making laws for how much you can have on you at a certain time and still call it legal.. age limits etc.. I smoke a bit of weed every now and again and that's all.. but if I was looking for drugs and I had a choice over a dealer or a place to buy them where I knew exactly what was being put into it.. I know what i would choose.

While I don't think drugs like heroin are good to abuse keep in mind that (at least in the US) more people are killed every year by alcohol than ALL OTHER ILLEGAL DRUGS COMBINED. So you kind of need to adjust your opinion of what a "bad drug" is. For example heroin is illegal in the US but fentanyl (a drug that is 50x the strength of heroin) is legal for prescription use. Basically drug laws and what is considered a "bad" drug is pretty much arbitrary. Even when it comes to drugs like heroin what is worse? A person getting street heroin of an unknown purity or quality resulting in possible medical problems and also economically supporting violent drug cartels or on the other hand a person getting heroin from a regulated source where the quality and purity of the heroin is known and the person is monitored.
