The U.S. military has been talking about developing laser weapons for decades. And after $40 million and years of hard work– alongside technological advances– the Armed Forces have finally done it.

The warship USS Ponce, which is currently deployed in the Persian Gulf, successfully tested the Laser Weapon System (LaWS) in November.

Consisting of six commercial welding lasers lashed togther and aimed at the same point, the laser is effective at ranges up to a mile.

What is so astonishing about new technology is that it only costs 59¢ a shot, compared to roughly $1 million per missile.
