You know how we’ve written a few stories about the growing problem of space debris? And, if you’ve seen Gravity, how a single piece of space debris can cause a cascade of destruction — the Kessler effect — that makes the entirety of space completely uninhabitable to spacecraft? Well, in the photo below, you can see the exit hole created by a tiny piece of aluminium space debris in a piece of Kevlar shielding — the same shielding that protects the manned modules of the International Space Station, and the European Space Agency’s resupply craft (the ATV). Even the most powerful sniper rifles on Earth wouldn’t be able to blast their way through Kevlar in the same way.

Sniper rifles have to deal with gravity.
Put in a zero g environment ?
Wonder what would happen.
