The US Government has perfected a SuperLaser capable of focusing a blast equivalent to that of a Hydrogen Bomb on a point roughly the size of a pencil eraser. The system works by combining several smaller beams into a focused point to replicate the effects of a nuclear explosion wihtout breaking the ABM test ban treaty. In other news: the space station we have been building to house the new laser array is encountering production difficulties and has experienced significant delays due to workforce issues, OSHA violations and the troubles with the indiginous tribes on the planet which houses our magnetic field generators. Emperor Palpatine's office reports that efforts have been redoubled ahead of the expected Rebel attack. Ok. That part's a joke. But the Super Laser is real. Honest.
