Default Re: That's Impossible: Death Rays and Energy Weapons: Part 1

I just tried it, it came right up for me. Might want to try again, or you may have to pick the playlist then start on part 1

Hope that helps, it is a very good show, they show a laser test where they shot a missile out of the sky, the system looked much smaller than I would have thought.

the first one they show they say is the most powerful laser in the world, I don't understand what they are doing exactly. they say it is 182 or 192 lasers fired at the same time, each about as powerful as what is in your cd burner. so even if each was 500mW and there were 200 of them it would only be 100 watts. I don't understand why they call it the most powerful one in the world???

They do show an animation of the beam path, I assume they must be doing something to the beam to make it more powerful but I cant imagine what?

If anyone knows what they are doing, or what I am misunderstanding. Please explain it here. Thanks.

I don't know, I am using firefox, I have Media player classic installed but I dont think it is being used.

Maybe try goping to the history channel site then click your way to the video, see if that works. Or search for the name of the video "Death Rays and Energy Weapons" in Google video and see if any of the other links work.

hope that helps

I downloaded it using torrents, wasnt all that quick as there were not many seeds, but i got it in the end...

Would there be any reason why the vid would work in the US and Caneda but not in Europe? just from looking at the posts it seems that is the case...

I think the super high power rating has to do with the fact that it's a pulsed UV (frequency tripled YAG I believe; don't quote me on that!) - a pulsed laser with a mediocre average power can have a ridiculously high peak power. 500mw could become a few KW if it's a pulsed laser, depending on the pulse rate and pulse length. You may want to read up on Nd:YAG lasers at Sam's laser faq - there are of course other types of pulsed laser as well, and the way the power rating (peak vs average) breaks down is pretty much the same.

BTW I did see that show a while back and recorded it. The laser that is seen shooting down a missile is an older system; I don't even think they are using that anymore. They are still developing missile-killing lasers but not that particular laser, the THEL laser - Tactical High Energy Laser. That and some of the other stuff seemed a little dated to me.
