Not sure if any knows this but:

"If you are near Dahlgren, Virginia tomorrow and you hear a big "WHOOOOOMP", no need for concern. The Navy is just firing its electromagnetic railgun at a power level untested before" As Seen At Defense Tech

I don't live too far from there. But I'll be in Northern Va at the time of the fireing.

I guess now we know how the Americans are gonna bring down that spy satellite. Can't let it 'fall' into enemy hands... lol
Who wants to bet it passes over Virginia before "breaking up harmless into the atmosphere?"

Wonder if the sat passed by during the test. I wonder if the gun pointed up for "Safety reasons"
