Directed Energy Planetary Defense (or, Vaporizing Asteroids that Threaten the Earth)

Asteroids and comets crossing Earth’s orbit pose a credible risk of impact, with potentially severe disturbances to society. UCSB's Dr. Phil Lubin's group proposes an orbital planetary defense system, DE-STAR, capable of heating the surface of potentially hazardous objects to the vaporization point.
