A 'Star Wars' Laser Bullet - This Is What It Really Looks Like

15 hours ago − Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences
Action-packed science-fiction movies often feature colourful laser bolts. But what would a real laser missile look like during flight, if we could only make it out? How would it illuminate its surroundings? The answers lie in a film made at the Laser Centre of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. …
