Lasers in the sky (with asteroids) - Peter Buschkamp

33c3 - Space - 12/29/2016

At 32C3 we shot lasers into space... now it's lasers in space!
We look at space- and airborne laser platforms and what practical uses people have come up with (hint: mostly more or less secret communication and military use). We'll also recap the basic physics and boundaries and check if 'pew pew pew' is really gonna cut it (hint: mostly no). To close, we'll have a look at laser based propulsion for space travel and other speculative applications off the beaten path.
