Last week, I watched the movie Real Genius again. A real 80s movie, with a young Val Kilmer and a lot of fun. According to Mirjam (who knows stuff like this) the science in the movie isn't completely wrong and the power levels named are consistent with the developments in those years. Anyway, reading US to test missile-killing airborne laser in The Register points at 'Real Genius', with phrases like solid state lasers and main chemical laser weapon. I hope that somewhere deep in the (probably top secret) designs for the Airborne Laser (ABL) is a reference to that movie.
