Alex Jones, who on his program often expresses his interest in science fiction and, in particular, Star Wars, discusses laser weaponry in the video above, which also features a real life Star Wars laser battle, on a miniature scale.
“When A New Hope was released in 1977, it blew audiences away worldwide,” Jones says in the video. “Who could imagine humans piloting spacecraft in laser battles? Little did they know NASA was already deploying unmanned drones in space, and testing laser weapons systems, now partially declassified.”
The video resolves in a time-lapsed laser “battle” in which Star Wars lego figurines are blasted and melted in a small-scale mock battle.
