Since this date was made so much of in 2010, I feel compelled to point out that today is the 51st anniversary of Ted Maiman‘s first working laser. In honor of the date, I’m wearing my “Lasers Rock!” T-shirt from last year’s CLEO concert. After all, think of the billions of rock songs that laser-powered devices have played over the past quarter-century. Lasers really DO rock!
