Rail Gun Porn

While we’re talking about futuristic weapons, how about some rail gun porn? Hat tip to powerlabs.org.

This is a 15 Kilojoule shot at target. You can see the plasma arc coming out of the gun. On their site, they say a lot of the energy got wasted because of the metal vaporization. Sad.http://youtube.com/watch?v=tV7aB8_0R74
8.3KJ shot with aluminium/teflon projectile. Apparently sending the projectile supersonic.
Take a trip over to powerlabs to get the details. You could build one of these yourself if you wanted to.

    Looking at the second video, I’m really skeptical of the supersonic claim. A reasonably weighted slug should have enough energy to shatter that target. I’m pretty sure that even my Glock 19 would cause more damage to that target, and that’s firing a projectile that’s just barely supersonic, and probably a bit lighter than what this fires.
