Re: What-If 0119: "Laser Umbrella"

I believe this is actually way easier because some of the problems cancel each other out! The Laser will more likely scatter the rain than outright vaporize it, I agree with that, But: THIS IS A GOOD THING! Let's target an imaginary 1m² plain 10m above us, assign 1.000.000 points on that plain and s...
