Raytheon and a U.S. Navy team used a combined-beam fiber laser to shoot down four unmanned aerial vehicles in flight during an over-the-water engagement.

A laser can be used to create a "vent", which could given enough time change the course of an meteor/ asteroid,so they surmise.Destroying one ?probably not as in total destruction,as you would more likely break it up into many many tiny pieces.But that again is only theoretical,so the grain of salt on this is pound sized at the least :P

You could probably vape an asteroid, but if it was large enough to be a problem in the first place my guess is it would take a hell of a lot of energy.
