This short technical paper presents the basic technical description of an Infrared Laser that was used on the World Trade Center on 9-11-2001. Readers advised to visit drjudywood.com. The Laser sits in geosyncronous orbit at 22,000 miles altitude. It is a large satellite and is likely still in orbit. In direct mode, the laser probably operates at 256*1.039 THz = 265.984 THz.
