Blasting asteroids with Laser away from Earth

Watch how scientists could blast asteroids away from Earth using laser weapon.   Take a look at the experiment in the video…

UCSB’s Experimental Cosmology Group graphically demonstrates its DE-STAR system.

DE-STAR (Directed Energy System for Targeting of Asteroids and exploRation) uses an array of laser beams to intercept and deflect asteroids. It could also be used as a photon drive for insterstellar travel.
Lab experiment shows theory of laser arrays is correct.
