I hate to burst your bubble, but it probably won't work. 1 milliwatt times 1000 is just 1000 light pens shining. The combined sources of laser light will not be enough. 1 milliwatt is times 1000 isn't no where enough to "punch" through the "bended" spectrum of our atmosphere. In other words, the light will be scattered and "bent". Now a laser of 1000 watts times 1000...that's another matter.
