We should get rid of nuclear weapons, and replace them with Tungsten rods. (Heavy telephone pole-sized metal rods that uses kinetic energy rather than nuclear energy).
Imagine the damage a 1.5 foot wide, 30 foot long rod of dense, heavy metal can do when hitting the ground from space at Mach 10 (7,000 mph). Theres no radiation, no fallout, just atomizing of targets.
Too bad you have to get them really high off the ground.
And that there is better uses for W than making big sticks to throw at people
We have nuclear weapons for one reason, destruction. They do more damage than W rods.

Nope. I watched a documentary about them. It makes so much sense to use them rather than nukes.
Interesting, I am familiar with the scifi weapons application can you direct to a source that indicates they are a realistic alternative energy source?
Same with nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons are much worse than tungsten rods.
Exactly, no more weapons of mass destruction.
Only if that was possible.
Another way we can kill each other? Wow, this is great news (sarcasm).
It's terrifying, nobody should be allowed to make those.
