Correct answer would be "it might put weapons in space."

Dr. Teller told Reagan of an idea he had about using x-ray lasers in space to shoot down enemy missiles. Reagan was fascinated with this idea. What Teller did not tell the President was that these x-ray lasers did not even exist in the laboratories and that the present concept for them required exploding an atomic bomb simply to provide the energy for the laser.Needless to say, President Reagan ran with the idea.
