OK, by this point, we all know Gravity was beautiful and terrifying and, mercifully, complete fiction. But scary clouds of space debris are real. There’s one floating up there right now — a possible missile explosion — and it’s a debris cloud of mystery.
India and China are the epitome of frenemies. Their relationship isn’t outright antagonistic, as India’s is with neighbouring Pakistan, but has remained prickly since an ongoing border dispute over Tibet that began in the 1960s. Which is why it could be a bit disconcerting that India’s newest missile can reach Beijing — not to mention deep into Europe.
Is this a picture of a soldier shooting lasers against the night sky? How did they make the beams bend? They twist and turn like bolts from a Tesla coil! Sadly, no. It’s just a fantastic picture of a Marine launching a PL-87 Stinger Missile at a flying drone in a training exercise. It’s so gorgeous.
Though we know in theoretical terms that North Korea has missiles that could hit Los Angeles, where else could North Korea’s missiles actually hit? With all the hubbub about North Korea and its redeployment of missiles on North Korea’s eastern coast, the Washington Post created a map showing the range of North Korea’s various missiles.
In a predictably insane yet still unsettling development, North Korea has declared its interest in a “preemptive” nuclear strike against the United States.

Hellfire II missiles are accurate and powerful, but they’re expensive. Hydra 70 rockets are relatively cheap but unguided and far less accurate, which increases the chances of incurring collateral damage. But by combining a Hellfire’s guidance and launcher with a Hydra’s warhead and propellant, Lockheed has created a deadly new hybrid in the Direct Attack Guided Rocket (DAGR).
While Russia’s submarine fleet remains a formidable force in the 21st century, the country still relies on craft built before the Iron Curtain lifted. Today, a lot of the subs are getting long in the tooth. However, the new SSBN Yury Dolgoruky will provide Mother Russia with a fresh set of nuclear fangs.
