The power of lasers
The U.S. Navy has created a giant laser capable of destroying air crafts and drones. It is powerful enough to create extreme heat powerful enough to blow up a hollow block of steel from the build up of heat.
The market of lasers has increased as lasers grow more and more popular.Now a days there are hobbyist dedicated to having a great collection of lasers. Some people spend thousands of dollars a year on high end lasers that can produce 5 WATS of power.
The common max powered laser you can get of the market is around 5 WATS that is enough to burn through rubber. The power scale lasers use is measured in mW which one thousand of those equals one WHAT.
