World's most powerfull laser fired 7 petawatts!
Romania’s laser reached world’s top nominal power: 7 petawatts!

"Last year, researchers reached the intermediate power that was actually in line with the 3 petawatts plan, and now it enters the final tests for a nominal power of 10 petawatts. Today it has been confirmed that world's highest power of 7 petawatts has been reached", Professor Zamfir said.

Re: World's most powerfull laser fired 7 petawatts!
At 10 petawatts the laser can rip apart the space!
China is also running to get 10 petawatts the laser

Physicists are planning to build lasers so powerful they could rip apart empty space

The researchers are now upgrading their laser and hope to beat their own record by the end of this year with a 10-PW shot, which would pack more than 1000 times the power of all the world's electrical grids combined.

Re: World's most powerfull laser fired 7 petawatts!

 Quoting: US Brig


aimed at people, tanks, jets, ships from orbit powered by mini nuclear reactors in combination with ultra-capacitors mounted on satellites, with a single such satellite capable of vaporizing more than 10 targets within a fraction of a second.

Roughly a million targets per day.


A thousand such satellites could wipe out/vaporize the whole population within 7 days without any pollution to the environment.


Pulsed beams traveling at the speed of light, shooting down any kind of ICBMs or hypersonic rockets, as long as there is sufficient advanced radar coverage to detect them would be almost trivial.

If this was going to be pointed up at the sky we would be winding up declaring war on another alien species in our own star system the the end of the month most likely. Even at a fraction of a second that much laser power would most likely outright destroy literally anything it touches for at least a light year away. Humanity is so dang destructive and hateful towards our own planet. Why...? There are no scientific benefits to be had here...

I don't think any aliens would fear humans. It would seem that literally every alien species that have been visiting the Earth even to this very day are vastly superior to humans in every way possible.

The facility where the lasers is hosted is a marvel of engineering: It is radioprotected, it has full temperature and humidity control, more than 10.000 geothermal vents suply thermal power and the 2.000 square meters platform where the lasers are being held is stablized to a micron (a sheet of paper has a width of 10 microns...) The whole 100.000 tons platform is held stable with springs and shocks, completely decoupled from the main buildings.

But that is an advantage, not a disadvantage. The shorter the period the higher the energy per volume you can achieve. With high enough energy densities, the targets you hit might start transmuting into other materials, fusing together which produces energy just like it is the case for our sun.

That might not be a great way to produce energy, given the efficiency of the lasers as in how much energy you have to put into the pulse vs how much you get out but it certainly helps with amplifying the pulse's energy and completely vaporizing your target.
