Amazing technology -

Quote
For years, the Navy’s new railgun was just an idea, a weapon like no other weapon ever used in warfare. But the Navy realized its dream Friday with a record-setting test in Dahlgren, Va.

Fox News explains the new technology:

    Rather than relying on a explosion to fire a projectile, the technology uses an electomagnetic current to accelerate a non-explosive bullet at several times the speed of sound. The conductive projectile zips along a set of electrically charged parallel rails and out of the barrel at speeds up to Mach 7.

    The result: a weapon that can hit a target 100 miles or more away within minutes.

This technology would be a REAL HIGH SPEED TRAIN.  Think of the advancement!!!

Why invest in OLD technology in the US.

This looks to be the future.  Hundreds of miles in minutes.
