Future Weapons of War in the Works

I have been reading Popular Science for 40 years as it is one of my favorite periodicals. This is a fascinating description of some of the amazing technologies that will be used in the future. Who needs explosive missiles when you can just launch a three-foot long chunk of metal at near Mach 7 speeds and get the same result? Popular Science looks at weapons the military is developing for future wars including:

  • electromagnetic railguns
  • space darts
  • superfast torpedos
  • laser cannons
  • a gun that fires a million rounds per minute
