Laser weapon on a US military aircraft

Lockheed Martin has already delivered the completed AHEL laser to the Air Force, which will be tested with the AC-130J Ghostrider. The United States Air Force has long been working to make laser weapons a standard part of aircraft weaponry, and Lockheed Martin has been awarded a five-year contract in July to further develop, test and demonstrate the AHEL (airborne high energy laser) system to help achieve this.

Maybe you can build a warp drive

Travelling faster than the speed of light without using negative energy may be feasible within the framework of Einstein’s laws of physics. The warp drive, which brings a spacecraft travelling through space to its destination by warping the fabric of space-time much faster than conventional methods, first appeared in the Star Trek series and was used to power Federation fleet vehicles, among other things.
