    Teller's concept was never once tested in practice. Supposedly you can detonate a nuke and in the microseconds before the laser chambers are vapourized you can
    achieve an X-ray laser blast. Smells like BS, because it is BS. Lasers do not pump up instantaneously and the amplification chambers do not have arbitrary energy
    density capacity. The nuke blast X-ray flux will overload any such chamber instantly. In fact, it is this overload that will delete the chamber before it can achieve
    an X-ray population inversion. Nukes are only useful for diffuse blasts with neutrons, X-rays and general EM radiation. They are not laser engines.

    The above is relevant for any discussion of lasers. Having some tubes with the right all material to scatter X-ray photons (good luck!) is not a laser it is a light
    duct.

    The Soyuz-2.1b rocket with military satellites on board launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome

    Moscow. May 17. INTERFAX.RU - The Russian Aerospace Forces launched the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on Friday.

    “On May 17, 2024, the Soyuz 2.1b launch vehicle with spacecraft on board was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome (Arkhangelsk region) in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense,” the message says.

    In April, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Plesetsk cosmodrome. He inspected the progress of construction and modernization of the cosmodrome's infrastructure facilities and said that with "the completion of the modernization of the second launch complex of Soyuz launch vehicles, the cosmodrome's capabilities to support spacecraft launches will double."
