I don't think any mirror in the world could reflect a laser that powerful if only because it would lose its reflective properties the moment is stars to burn. some science dude explained it in detail one time I think.

We all know the true purpose of this weapon is to shine on enemy targets and then to attract every cat in a 10-mile radius to claw them to death.

Time for science up in this **** . No mirror reflects back 100% of the light hitting it.

First off, different materials reflect different wavelengths of light. A traditional mirror reflects visible light, but might not reflect infrared light. The mirror would have to be a reflector at the laser's wavelength.

Second, there is no such thing as a perfect reflector. A mirror can reflect the green light of your shirt, but a small amount of that green light is still absorbed. Even a small amount of absorption could lead to massive heat from a laser like that.

You wanna beat the laser? Attack while it's raining. Use massive steam generators on small PT boats ahead of you. Large pockets of water vapor, followed by open air, followed by more steam, etc. Every time the laser has to go through a different medium, it's going to get more messed up. Then just hope they can't take out your PT boats before you can get in range.

Mirrors? You mean those silly glass things that melt?

A reflective coating will add maybe a few microseconds of time before **** blows up.

That mirror would have to be flawless on a scale only telescopes enjoy.

Actually, a sufficiently high powered mirror would be able to melt a hole through most mirror surfaces due to teh fact that no perfect mirror exists. also, if theyre covered in mirrors, that makes you a pretty damn bright target refelcting a lot of excess heat, making you vulnerable to EVERY OTHER WEAPON AVAILABLE.



despite all that^^ this picture made me lol hard. thumb for you good sir!!

The word laser is actually an acronym for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation", much like Scuba is an acronym for "self-contained underwater breathing apperatus."

Its a laser that can destroy missiles, and you think a mirror will stop it?
#15 - paradoxpoetic (04/11/2013) [+] (3 replies)
Because Mirrors reflect heat too?
Lasers don't just shine a light on something 'til it gets bored and goes away. It superheats it. Mirror all you want, it will just melt.

mirrors reflect infrared radiation which transmits heat. so, in a sense, mirrors can reflect heat. a mirror could reflect this laser probably for a short period of time before melting, i don't know how long for. BUT it is possible to have a mirror that is so reflective it absorbs less than .0001% of electromagnetic radiation, in THIS case the mirror would not melt for a very long time unless less than .0001% of the laser's potential energy was enough to melt a mirror in a short amount of time.    
   
but i'm sure the engineers designing this laser thought of everything so i wouldn't be worried about it.   
   
also to perfectly reflect the laser back at it's source you'd need a retroreflector which is a very specific and precise mirror (pic related)

Why OP? Why would you torture my eyes with that embossment?!

A laser that powerful would break almost any mirror within a couple of seconds. You'd be better off throwing a dense cloud of smoke around you to weaken the laser, so it doesn't hit u hard enough to burn you. Also existing technology...

Even if you could develop a mirror strong enough to reflect the lasers, good luck trying to made them light and cheap enough to cover an entire plane
