old news but yea it's about time we have 21st century weapon! I think this weapon will be short-lived though because I think we will move onto satellite-based missiles.

A satellite containing several kinetic missiles.

Just like the rail gun. Powered by magnets. I cannot wait for people to complain of some kind of health issues from this over time.

It is much safer than powder charges in guns or high-pressure steam pipes and cables moving at high speeds for cat launches.
