In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore the growing field of laser weaponry. As crazy as it sounds, this tech is set to have a massive impact on global peace and geopolitics. On one hand, lasers will spur an arms race and yet on another, it will lead to a drastic decline in the civilian casualties of future wars.
