In 2015, Lockheed Martin took the wraps off a 30-kW mobile laser weapon that was powerful enough to take out a truck. Now the company will deliver a new 60-kW weapon to the US Army that earlier this month set a new record by generating a single 58-kW beam. With all phases from demonstration to development completed, Lockheed will ship the combined fiber laser to the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command in Huntsville, Alabama.

PARIS (AP) — Blood tests determined Sunday that a suspected Islamic extremist consumed drugs and alcohol before a frenzied spree of violence that ended when he took a soldier hostage at Paris' Orly Airport and was shot dead by her fellow patrolmen.
According to the box office numbers coming in now on Sunday afternoon, Beauty and the Beast opened to an incredible $170 million in North America, taken in from 4,210 theaters across the box office!
Add in another $180 million abroad, and that total — an incredible global sum of $350 million — is HUGE!!!
But how huge?!
Well, how about biggest start ever for a PG title in both North America and abroad huge!!!!
That’s right — last year’s Finding Dory was massive domestically ($135 million) as the previous champ, and yet Beauty and the Beast blew it out of the water.
And last year’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was massive, too, at $166 million, but Beauty and the Beast ran right past it this year to bring home the March box office opening weekend record, too!
As of right now, the family-friendly movie is the seventh-biggest domestic opening for any film ever, although some studios are even putting their total domestic numbers as high as $174 million — which could up it in the list.
Internationally, Beauty and the Beast was number one pretty much everywhere, including taking in $22.8 million in the U.K. alone, and another $44.8 million in China!
Dave Hollis, the Disneydistribution chief, relayed his thoughts on what made this flick SO spectacular on this weekend:
“There were a combination of factors that made this a recipes for success. There was a nostalgia for the original and the Disney brand. And Emma Watson was perfectly cast as Belle. The visual effects were also their own character. And I love our date. We have five weeks of rolling spring break ahead of us.”
No kidding to ALL of the above — and a very shrewd look at that last part. We’ll see for how many weeks it can maintain a top spot!!
