CHINA PLANS TO DESTROY SPACE JUNK WITH GIANT LASERS

reddit:中国计划用巨型激光清理太空垃圾

Chinese scientists have an audacious proposal to clean up Earth’s cluttered orbit using giant lasers to obliterate old satellites and other space junk.

中国科学家提出了一个大胆的建议:用巨型激光清理地球轨道上的太空垃圾。

A paper, titled Impacts of orbital elements of space-based laser station on small scale space debris removal, by researchers at the Air Force Engineering University in China describes how space debris could be zapped into smaller, less-harmful pieces using space-based lasers.

中国空军工程大学的研究人员在一篇题为《空间激光站对小规模空间碎片清理的影响》的论文中描述了太空碎片如何被太空激光切割成危害更小的碎片。

The Chinese scientists conducted a simulation of the laser station, concluding that it would be an effective method for clearing up Earth’s orbit.

中国科学家们对激光站进行了模拟,认为这将是清理地球轨道上太空垃圾的有效办法。

I feel like a giant laser could zap legitimate satellites if its operators wanted to

感觉巨型激光也能摧毁在运行的卫星,如果想的话。

Definitely, any laser big enough to destroy space junk could also be used to destroy satellites or spacecraft. Its clearly a dual purpose technology.

那是肯定的,巨型激光既然能清理太空垃圾,当然也能摧毁卫星或太空飞船。这明显是一个双重用途的技术。

It’s pointless technology though. If any major power “kills” another’s satellite the next stage is fueling the ICBMs. If they kill a second it’s world war 3.

这个技术派不上用场的,如果哪个大国能摧毁其他国家的卫星,下一个阶段就是为洲际弹道导弹加注燃料。接着就是第三次世界大战了。

It's clearly not pointless.. It can be used to clean space junk!

显然有用啊,可以用来清理太空垃圾!

Or airplanes, bombers, missiles, etc.. It becomes an air defense cannon.

可以用来击落飞机、轰炸机、导弹等等。当做防空武器。

How about they use freaking laser beams and clean the freaking oceans

他们会用激光束清洁海洋吗?

Classic case of people trying to do legitimately good things but we shouldn't let them because "OOH it could be dangerous if they are stupid enough"

人们这样做本意是好的,就是不想让他们做,担心他们把这个技术用搞破坏
