Smart people doing interesting and helpful things.

I wonder if they can direct strikes with smaller versions?

Can they direct strikes and harness the power?

For some reason, I kept reading "spiritual lightning rod "

I think this was a test to see if they could divert it away from the tower, and for how long.

The lightning would always eventually go to the tower.

But the idea is they could set these up in areas where there is no huge tower, but lower stuff they want to divert away from - then the lightning would be most attracted to the laser and would protect the lower stuff


I would think they are considering using it to harness power as well. You could run alot of EV's off a lightning bolt
