Sci-Fi weapons soon a reality?
To me one of the things that makes Sci-Fi shows so interesting is the feeling of being able to sneak-peak into a future where much more advanced technology is available to us. In Stargate SG-1 the story begins with when the team is confronted with a seemingly unbeatable enemy – the Gou’old. Later in the show they meet the even more powerful Asgaards appears which possess really advanced space ships and weapons. One of these impressive weapons from the Asgaards is the Rail Gun that one of the ships from Stargate Command gets outfitted with. So, I was really amazed when I read this article about, yes that is right, a rail gun being delivered to the US Navy. Now I am just waiting for space ships that are bigger than aircraft carriers that can travel many times that speed of light 🙂
