    That is awesome. That, and the concept of peer-reviewed student journals. :O

    One issue here being that most sci-fi shows don't use lasers, they use other forms of energy, most of which travel slower not just than light, but than rounds from high-end firearms (certainly the bolts in Star Wars are travelling well below the speed afforded my a modern assault rifle).
