"Currently the craft is very small and noisy, but NASA has drawn up plans for a 20m microwave-powered saucer, which could carry up to 12 people to the Moon in just six hours. Power would be harvested by solar panels, housed on a lunar orbiting power station. Microwaves created from the solar energy would be beamed straight to the Lightcraft to power its lunar trip."

The word laser is short for "light amplification by stimulated of radiation." A laser emits a narrow beam of intense, highly coherent light. This technology was developed around 1960. (7)
Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI): Various designs for the controversial anti-missle system were proposed. Plans called for SDI to destroy enemy missles and warheads by using a combination of interceptor missiles, ground-based and space-based lasers, and particle beam weapons. Although stated aims of SDI were to deter Soviet attack and to neutralize any such attack should it occur, some observers saw in SDI a possible response to a perceived threat of invasion by extraterrestrials. (7)
Colonel Philip J. Corso describes weapons incorporating alien technology, including advanced paticle-beam weapons. Among the early weapons systems developed for his purpose were 'Saint' and 'Blue Gemini', which were 'outgrowths of USAF 7795, a code number for he USAF's first satellite programme [which was] designed to locate, track, and destroy enemy surveillance satellites or, more importantly, orbiting UFOs...Both of these weapons, under the cover of other missions, of course, were eventually deployed, and today they form one of the lines of defense in an anti-missle and anti-UFO surveillance system.
