Navy tests new electromagnetic rail gun that fires at 7 times the speed of sound
"An electromagnetic rail gun is a gun that uses just electricity -- no gun powder -- and, oh, by the way, can shoot a projectile like this, well over 100 miles at Mach 7," said Rear Adm.

Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder is still pissed I buzzed his tower at Mach 2 in my SR-71 Blackbird. He spilled coffee all over himself.
So he built a gun to shoot at me if I did that again.
I wonder if he knows I'm now flying the X-43A scramjet.
Perhaps I should buzz his tower just shy of Mach 10 to let him know.

Oh great, the Japanese can use this technology on their whaling ships.
Harpoons are so 19th century.
