"A ship-based laser tested by the U.S. Navy's research arm could put the heat on Somali pirates. The Navy for the first time last week successfully tested a solid-state high-energy laser from a ship. The beam, which was aimed at a boat moving through turbulent Pacific Ocean waters, set the target's engine on fire." (04/13/11)
