Good day, I would love to ask this question. Lets say that I have a energy source capable of delivering 10^30 watts with capacitors to match it and I would like to use this energy as a weapon (sort of like a death star).
Now the question, is it realistic to deliver all this energy through laser as a direct energy deposition (like death star), or is it not realistic and the only way to deliver this energy is through using thet energy to accelerate some object near to c and using it as a kinetic energy weapon? (fast projectile)?
Thank you really very much for your answers,
Have a nice day
