Submission + - Congress Wants Broken Laser to Zap North Korea's Broken Missiles (wired.com)

__aaqpaq9254 writes: Noah Schactman has a great piece on the Airborne Laser, the ray gun-equipped 747 that became a symbol of wasteful Pentagon weaponeering. Despite sixteen years and billions of dollars in development, the jet could never reliably blast a missile in trials. Now the House Armed Services Committee’s Strategic Forces wants the Airborne Laser to be used to defend us against the threat of North Korea's failed missiles. Really good read.
