Could ICBM's be knocked into space by magnetic repulsion devices?

missiles are mettalic yeah? so could a strong magnetic repulsion beam knock them out into space??? they would most like blow up in space too dont even need destroy then really just knock them out into space so they dont re enter, possible even help boost them into space where they would speed up beyond what they should do so messing up their guidance they probably head off into space yes?? as missiles dont have retro boosters do they to help slow them down??

in theory - possibly - in practice NOOOO

MY OPINION WHY IS :

#1 - magnetic field strength decreases with range [ get a spoon and a compass - wave the spoon over it compass goes crazy - back up 6 feet - and you cannot affect it with the same spoon ]

#2 - missile construction - titanium / aluminum ?? for weight and strength - you want payload - not chassis - the only steels in a missile - will be in the rocket nozzles - and fuel pumps - small heat shields and bearings etc

IMHO - the size and power - required would be prohibitive , and affect a lot more of your systems than the enemy missiles you are targeting

I suspect the safety range - and no fly zone this would require - would be enormous - if you hoped to affect object that are almost in space

sorry to be negative - but the idea just sounds absurd to me

the magnetic repulsion device would have to be incrediblty powerful. i reckon it wouldneed its own large nuclear power plant. and think of all the metal in your house and imagine if a super powerful magnetic repulsor was turned on. Imagine the chaos it would create.

yeah had not thought of that probably cause havoc all over the place, and its probably easier to fire a nuke at the ICBM any way, although it would be nice if we had something that could direct magnetism or some sort of field that could repulse things, no idea what force could be used to be harnessed for it though.

yeah. either that or if there was a plane (or maybe a verly low sattalite) that had the magnetic repulser on board then it would be awesome.

ICBM's could be destroyed by magnetic fields,rather than the fantasy of driving them to be satellites

Because the electronic parts are very delicate when exposed to magnetic fields.Then the missile will run until it runs out of fuel,then crashing into Earth.
Please remember that the nuclear implosion may not be triggered now-a-days by gravity alone.

Answer: There is no spoon...Either that or get a bigger one
