LONDON, July 10 — The U.S. Army will soon conduct trials of a “Star Wars”-style cannon that will clear surface-laid mines by zapping them with a high-powered laser, New Scientist magazine said Wednesday. Dubbed Zeus, the laser cannon is mounted on the top of a Humvee all-terrain military vehicle and operated from the cab. http://msnbc.com/news/778602.asp?0dm=C1BNT
