Will Space Battles Be Fought with Laser Weapons?

Evidently not by America if Obama has his way

I would assume that in space firing projectile weapons would pose significant navigational challenges. Recoil and all that.

Captain! They are firing...lasers at us?

How quaint, number one.

Like all wars, they will be fought with weapons not today developed or understood. It might be lasers. It might be something that harkens back to the day when lasers were thought to be cutting edge technology.

If man ever takes up residence in space, the question is not what weapons he will use but can man find a way to live in space without fighting a war there. History does not speak well to that possibility.

Just by moving something in the way of a fast moving spacecraft or satellite and causing it to fragment into thousands of pieces of debris will be the next generation of space weapons to be used.

Hardly. With the decimation of the military, de-stocking the nuclear deterrent, funding mudslim-bruderhood, more likely future wars will feature Spit-Balls.
