Death Rays and Energy Weapons

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the penultimate episode of the highly acclaimed documentary series “That’s Impossible” narrated by veteran actor Jonathan Frakes, best known for his portrayal of Commander William T. Riker in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The spotlight of this instalment shines on the actual development of death rays and energy weapons reminiscent of those depicted in science fiction.

Cutting edge breakthroughs are bringing this science fiction technology to the battlefield. We will explore reports of high-powered lasers that can shoot down enemy planes and vaporize armies from space, bombs that release bursts of energy more powerful than nuclear warheads. But could this death-at-the-speed-of- light weapons be defeated by another science fiction technology in the works…. force fields?
