[Big Snip]

Don't know if this is relevant but there has just been a patent
issued for a 'Phaser' a'la Star Trek.[See Last weeks New
Scientist] The Device is a UV laser. The Laser produces an
ionisation trail to the intended target. Down which electricity
is then discharged. The present prototype is limited by the size
of the laser to the size of a small tabletop. The priciple is
sound however. Charges can be used to inflict pain, stun or kill.
The Research was an attempt to produce taser like weapons that
had more than single shot capabilities and were non-projectile.
The Weapon would be effective through clothing/body armour.

If a UFO were to produce such UV ionisation, burns could be
accounted for by electrical discharge or if stong enough the UV
itself. This may either be an unfortunate side effect, or

As another aside. Earthlights could have similar properties.
