Bendy laser beams fired through the air

The Norse thunder god Thor deflected lightning with his hammer. Physicists could soon replicate this feat using curved laser beams.

Bending lightning around tall buildings and away from airports, power plants and other facilities is just one application for curved laser beams, says Jerome Moloney at the University of Arizona, Tuscon.

That would be a sight to see. Thomas Edison harnessed the power of lightning, and soon we will be able to bend it. Crazy!

So John Titor was right lol

would this have weapon possibilities?

Like being able to use lighting and divert it to strike at enemy targets and installations? (although there would have to be storm over said enemy lol)

That thought occurred to me also.

I have a feeling that our future will be full of those things which existed in myths and tales! And the word magic will be replaced by the word Science.

That's easy, we'd just seed the clouds :D

I assume that's smell like "secret weapon" if someday it happen I'd like to be the first human to invent that CRAZY SON OF A GUN super weapon so in the end the world is no longer suffer from war until only few country left standing to declare a new world with no boundary hicks....is there a place to store my madness arround here :unsure2: because if the world at peace as it is today 2009 it will be no hope for the brilliant thinker to do some new outstanding invention, new brilliant technology so who the hell is the maniac to start a big war first? before we are being invade by another world or creature and earth can do nothing to even strike back

Is there any way to harness some of the energy of a lightning bolt? Perhaps by charging a huge bank of supercapacitors and then feeding that juice into the grid more slowly?

If so, it might be possible to channel some of the energy for human use. Not only would we be reducing the threat of lightning harming us, we could get significant energy out of it.

If you had supercapacitors that could handle the voltage of a lightning bolt, yes. That would work quite nicely.
