Military lasers to end wars as we know it | S1:E2

November 03, 2016

In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore the growing field of laser weaponry. As crazy as it sounds, this tech is set to have a massive impact on global peace and geopolitics in general. On one hand, lasers will spur an arms race and yet on another, it will lead to a drastic decline in the civilian casualties of future wars.
