Hypersonic Weapons Could Change The Face Of Warfare

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 13 minutes ago
*The Drive*: *Here's How Hypersonic Weapons Could Completely Change the Face of Warfare* Missiles and aircraft zipping around at Mach five and above could dramatically change how military forces attack and defend. Imagine an enemy deciding to attack from 1,000 miles away. Now, imagine you have less than 15 minutes to react and may not even see their missile coming in the first place. This is the potential threat posed by so-called “hypersonic weapons,” which can fly as fast as a mile a second and low enough to evade many existing defenses. Though there is much attention given to ... more »

Okay, let's just do a science fiction news roundup! The rebooted Omni-Online has featured Ten science fiction books that "changed the genre forever." While flattered to be included on this list - I'm not sure I deserve to be. Ray Kurzweil’s “Accelerating Intelligence” site has featured Preparing for Our Post-human Future of Artificial Intelligence -- my rumination about our future in a roboticized world.

*TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 2017The Elisabeth Rosenthal Challenge:* In last Saturday's belated post, we mentioned Elisabeth Rosenthal. She has published a new book, An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back. Truthfully, you yourself aren't going to "take it back." That said, we've started reading Rosenthal's book, and we've been surprised and puzzled by what we have found. In Saturday's belated post, we linked to Rosenthal's recent appearance on C-Span's After Words program. As we noted, that appearance left our analysts asking an anguished quest... more »
