Laser Painting Could Lead to 25-Year Prison Term

Newspimp Re:Planes are not travelling at 600 miles an hour (1615 comments)

There have been incidents of people having their eyesight damaged momentarily due to lasing. Crews get briefed on lasing events everytime they're going into the AOR because it's happened to us before.

Oh, I completely understand that the capability for instantaneous blindness does exist, but it simply doesn't with the methods and equipment used.

Industrial lasers, putting out 1kW to Military Laser/ABL/SBL/THEL putting out between 100kW and 10MW could easily blind with a millisecond of exposure. That is if they don't burn right through your eyesockets... :)
