President Ronald Reagan's Star Wars Dream Come True: U.S. Navy's Laser Weapon System Shoots Down Aerial Drones In Test

President Ronald Reagan was mocked in the 1980s for his dream of a "Star Wars" anti-missile defense shield, but he may have the last laugh. reports that the U.S. Navy has successfully used a laser weapon system to shoot down four unmanned aerial vehicles in a recent test.

Raytheon is developing the system for the Navy and perhaps we will soon have an excellent anti-missile defense system to shield us from missiles launched from countries like Iran, North Korea, and other adversaries.

You can read the report and see a video of the laser shoot down via the below link:

President Reagan would be proud.
