The Navy coyly promises to have a “super laser” by 2018

Good news! The Navy has been working on a giant deathray that it can attach to all its ships since the eighties. And they just announced that they’re 18 months ahead of schedule!

Um. The news is really just that scientists at Los Alamos National Lab have created an electron “injector” that can create the power that will be needed to power any future super lasers. Which I guess is cool… on a conceptual level. But whatever, check out this picture of a sub with lasers:
