Ok, somehow we went from hypothetical orbital industry to hypothetical future warfare strategies in one smooth motion... I enjoy it, but a bit more back to topic would be nice. Main takeaway: If lasers as effective weapons enter the picture, the shape of the orbital infrastructure will probably be the thing least affected by it...
Well, what future warfare looks like determines if wars between the big powers are possible, and that bears on whether laser sats make sense.
