Trump's statement about the “imminent creation of the greatest weapon in the US” sparked a discussion on the net


Donald Trump, responding to the first American launch of a manned spacecraft to the ISS in 9 years, made a statement on armory subjects. During his speech in Florida after the successful launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket, Donald Trump said that “soon the United States will have the greatest weapon that could be imagined in all history».


This statement sparked a discussion on the net. What specific “greatest weapon” is the US president talking about?

Some experts have suggested that this could be hypersonic missile weapons. It is stated that in this regard, the United States is going to "catch up and overtake Russia."

Others believe that Trump announced the “greatest weapon” without any attachment to anything specific, as he often did during his high-profile speeches. It is additionally noted that the election campaign is actually starting in the USA, and therefore Donald Trump uses any convenient moment for self-PR.
In his speech, the US president also stated that "soon American astronauts will land on Mars."

Note from US Vice President Mike Pence on the successful launch of the Crew Dragon manned spacecraft:

Almost 4 years ago, President Donald Trump told America and the world: “We are on the verge of a new millennium ready to uncover the secrets of outer space.” Now the United States is re-launching American astronauts into space on American rockets from American territory!

After that, Trump himself decided to hurt his opponents from the Democratic Party and already on Twitter made a recording of the following nature, not related to astronautics, but related to internal events in the States:

The National Guard was sent to Minneapolis to carry out the work that the mayor Democrat could not do. If he had taken the necessary measures 2 days ago, then there would have been no destruction or seizure of police stations. The National Guard has done an excellent job.

      You can, of course, continue to be ironic about this, and even better to write that the launch of the Falcon 9 was shot in Hollywood. But it would be better instead to take care of the implementation of our space rocket programs. And then all these “trampolines” and “rubber boots” somehow sound frivolous - then we laugh from the Ukrainian ones, “they hit us all over the head with the Maidan” ...

        Following Minneapolis, pogroms began in New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Philadelphia.

        Create this damn weapon and use against the damned rebels!

          And what did Rogozin do during this time so that his phrase would at least bring our leadership in space closer? Politics always has to answer for their language .. and if for decades they cannot change the situation for the better, then you need to leave .. and this is not only Rogozin’s concern ..

              I remind you that Rogozin has only been in office for 2 years at Roskosmos.

              Let me remind you of Rogozin’s biography ..
              Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin (born December 21, 1963, Moscow) is a Russian politician and statesman. Director General of the State Space Corporation Roscosmos since May 24, 2018. On December 6, 2018, he was appointed Special Representative of the President for International Cooperation in Outer Space.

              Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Engineering. From December 23, 2011 to May 18, 2018 - Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Chairman of the Board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation, Supervisory Board of the State Corporation Roscosmos, Supervisory Board of the Foundation for Advanced Research, the Maritime College under the Government of the Russian Federation, the State Commission for the Development of the Arctic, the State Border Commission ...

              That is, in 2011, he did not deal with the problems of space? And if so, it has been already 10 years in this "business" .. And what are our breakthrough results? I don’t mean corruption schemes of the Vostochny spaceport now
              And I remind you that no matter how effective a leader you are, it is difficult to stay ahead of those who are catching up with budgets ten times more.

              This is true, but who finances our astronautics and why is there such a small budget and why has our economy been treading water for 20 years and immediately straining when the barrel is up?

        Have you decided to arrange a “fashionable sentence”? Maybe functionality is more important for spacesuits?

    As I understand it, the step returned without any problems. If the ship returns this way, all that remains is to congratulate the Mask. But the costumes are still that masterpiece. It is rightly said that they were worked not by engineers, but by designers.

      Well, on the broadcast, both astronauts actively waved their hands, kneading fingers. This can’t be done in Russia until the heroic gloves are removed (even a special stick had to be crutched), and here they control the touch panels with gloves, without any sticks. However, there will probably be some comments after the flight, and a modified lightweight will roll out by 21-22.

      Well, compare the flight like this:

      And so:


      Well, according to the spacesuits, the astronaut who flew away said that in the old one (on the Shuttle) he felt like in a winter jacket and winter daddy pants in childhood, he just put on a flying jumpsuit. The old suit was connected to the life support system with 7 different interfaces. They were quite difficult to connect. New one unified.

      Both spacesuits perform one function - to save from depressurization.

        And what are you comparing here. Everything is fine, one technology was made in the last century, another in the present. It is necessary to compare what corresponds to the time frame. There will be a new ship in Russia, then compare. And then all fans of Mask only strive to pinch. But the point is wink wait and see. Surprisingly, the great Americans were able to master this only now. This is with a huge amount of money, without sanctions and with the possibilities of cooperation around the world, bravo laughing but I congratulate you all. Better late than never.

        Does it bother you that there are THREE astronauts in one ship, and one less in the other? Apparently one does not have to have theories of higher mathematics in order to compare the fact that there is less space for two. That's why mericatos are lying around.

      Superweapon .. Its enough. Nuclear.

      5 countries officially have nuclear weapons and as much unofficially ...
      But to create one in such a way as not to violate the agreement on the deployment of nuclear weapons in space, and to have a club carried over the partner’s head is a matter of a sophisticated Naglossak mind. And about such weapons have already been talked about on the pages of InosMI.
      Tungsten (or depleted uranium) rods in orbit are not weapons. But the damage dropped from it onto the target creates the effect of the use of nuclear weapons - their kinetic energy is so great. When faced with an obstacle, such a “hypersonic crowbar” will be worse than the BB.
      And further. The EPR is practically “zero”. Cost - minimum! Attack by traditional means cannot be traced. It is not realistic to intercept an attacking scrap with current means. All this makes * rods * an ideal first strike weapon.
      Suppress the ground based missile defense system, strategic command and control, critical missile defense facilities - and then traditional means will cope ...
      That is the danger of "cosmic rods." I think it was them that Donya had in mind, rejoicing at the possibility of resuming spacecraft flights from national territory.

              But seriously, it is only after the defeat of the AUS-s (2-3) and the boundaries of MPRO / air defense from the Ajis carriers that our strategists can fly to the turn of the task. It is 3-4 thousand km to the coast of exceptional. The question is how to “break” these lines ... MRA with a cloud of RCC? PlaRKs? missile and torpedo submarines? And we have them ... well, a lot of them! those who can resist the Gini and the Wolves ...
              And before that, it will still be necessary to cross the borders of the PLO with the English Weingards and the French Barracudas ...
              In short, without the Strategic Rocket Forces, with their new beater, it will be very tiring.
              And best of all - to ruin the States from the inside through the Fergusons and Minneapolis as they are our Union - and you won’t need to bathe if, for example, the Texas cowboys send everyone the forest ... laughing

        Tungsten (or depleted uranium) rods in orbit are not weapons. But the damage dropped from it onto the target creates the effect of the use of nuclear weapons - their kinetic energy is so great. When faced with an obstacle, such a “hypersonic crowbar” will be worse than the BB.
        And further. The EPR is practically “zero”.

        Also read in InOSMI, but it seemed nonsense. But your comment gave reason to think.
        For example, refractory tungsten rods can not burn in the atmosphere and reach the Earth's surface. But the speed of such a rod near the ground, in principle, cannot be more than 1,5 - 2 M, as most ballistic weapons prove. Therefore, with a mass of 1 kg, the energy will be no more than 250 kJ, i.e. 60 grams of TNT. Regarding low ESR and invisibility to radars, we can definitely say that in fact any metal rod is an almost perfect reflector (director antennas are actually a set of rods). Secondly, upon entering a dense atmosphere, an ionized trace will form, which will immediately increase the EPR by tens and hundreds of times, i.e. on the radar screen, the level of the reflected signal from the rod tag will be like from a bomber. And most importantly, these are the problems of calculating the ballistic trajectory, which will be seriously complicated by different atmospheric air flows at different heights. Now the maximum accuracy of such calculations is achieved when the astronauts land and the error under favorable conditions is about 1 km.
        Thus, the dumping of uncontrolled tungsten rods from space is an informational stuffing, a usual scarecrow designed for those who are too lazy to recall the school physics course.

          Thanks for responding to my post, but
          Quote: Vita VKO
          Your comment gave an occasion ...
          once again clarify some of the questions you have raised in doubt:
          A week before Putin’s statement, the Pentagon set about building promising Prompt Global Strike complexes. The concept provides for maximum damage to the enemy’s civil and military infrastructure by non-nuclear means in an extremely short time. The victim state simply does not have time to adequately respond to aggression. In addition, in the event of such an attack, civilian casualties will be minimized, which in theory will greatly affect the determination to use the remaining nuclear weapons in response.

          According to available information, Americans suggest using tThe main types of weapons. Non-nuclear warheads for intercontinental ballistic missiles armed with weapons can be classified as already implemented systems. The missile, as in the case of a nuclear strike, raises the warhead to low Earth orbit, after which it is separated from the platform and rushes to the target along a ballistic trajectory with hypersonic speed.

          As another means of delivering an instant global strike, hypersonic cruise missiles are called. So, in the United States for several years the X-51 Waverider rocket has been developed. The main advantage of such weapon systems over conventional cruise missiles is speed. So far, the best achievement of the experimental apparatus is a flight at a distance of 426 km at a speed of Mach 5,1 (five speeds of sound).

          In addition The United States is developing the so-called kinetic weapons. These are tungsten rods 5-10 m long, dropped onto the target from space orbit. The impact power at the meeting of such a rod with the ground will be equivalent to an explosion of 10-12 tons of TNT, and this is enough to open the lid of the missile shaft or destroy the underground command post. Allegedly, to work out such a concept, the Americans built the X-37B spacecraft, which was last on duty for two years in orbit, after which it returned to Earth.

            I’ll clarify some of the questions you have raised in doubt:
            I didn’t invent it myself, read it at my leisure yes
            In the 1950s, Jerry Purnell, who worked at Boeing, suggested using similar ammunition for bombing from orbit. In the West, this concept was called Rods of God, and the military still makes no attempt to put it into practice ...
            The latest open documents of the U.S. Air Force are talking about tungsten rods 6,1 m long and 0,3 m in diameter, weighing 9 tons each. The simplest rudders and a miniature control system capable of providing a probable circular deviation of less than 30 m are placed at the rear end of such a rod. Hitting the target, such a projectile will move at a speed of 3,4 km / s, gaining kinetic energy of 5,8 million joules per kilogram of mass. For comparison: TNT releases less than 4,2 million J / kg in an explosion. Tungsten falling from heaven is more powerful than conventional explosives, and whole tungsten scrap will have a TNT equivalent of at least 11,5 tons.
            If we want to drown the cruiser, then the best is hard to wish for. For example, the tactical nuclear weapon “Davy Crockett” during the Cold War had the same TNT equivalent of 10–20 tons. Moreover, Crockett’s circular probable deviation was as much as 240 m, which reduced the probability of hitting the target by almost a hundred times. No matter how funny it may sound, the scrap falling from outer space is more effective than the light tactical nuclear weapons of the Cold War era. Fortunately, putting this mass of metal into orbit for impact is still a monstrously expensive enterprise. The American shuttles could take no more than three of these rods, while it would take at least several weeks and half a billion dollars to prepare the launch.
            Thanks to a powerful reusable carrier, SpaceX is going to reduce the cost of launching cargo into space, according to Elon Mask, “by 50 thousand times.” At the same time, even in the basic version, it will be able to deliver 100 tons to a low Earth orbit, and subsequently, the carrying capacity will be increased by another half. Even if Musk does not achieve the intended goal, the launch of a serial BFR is unlikely to be more expensive than $ 5 million. That is, delivery of one “rod of God” to the target will come out no more than half a million. It would seem to be too expensive. However, each hour of a B-2 flight costs more than $ 150, and a subsonic bomber requires at least 10 flight hours to hit a target. And it costs more than 3,3 billion. At the same time, the TNT equivalent of non-nuclear bombs delivered to the target by B-2 is only 10-15 tons, like a single tungsten rod (BFR can carry 10-15). Beat B-2 can stop the air defense. But to destroy more than a dozen refractory crowbars in hypersound will be difficult and promising S-500.

    Yes, it seems they’ve already created something that has no analogues and poses a serious threat - X-37B; with minimal changes, this is a space bomber, you can even make it "stealth" if you wish, and given that it is able to maneuver it makes it not vulnerable to any missile defense, except for neutron.

      ren-tv should already be attributed to weapons of mass destruction; I remind you that in the 60s there was a cold war, if the USSR saw that there was no radio broadcast from the moon, all newspapers would write about it on the same day. And for the especially stupid Amerikos there, the reflectors on the moon left there so that you could carry the necessary equipment with you, use a laser to measure the distance to the moon, and even calculate and correct the information at what speed it is moving away from the earth.

    For North Korea, Trump already had the most “beautiful, high-tech” rocket. The DPRK is in place and continues to test, the American AUG has retired. Therefore, the new "greatest weapon" is another delightful exhalation of the American president.
    And I can not touch on the topic of the American launch, which is also remembered in connection with this article. Below (in the launch article) there were so many admirations, eyes rolled to the sky and almost prayers for the Mask, which even became funny. One managed to write that this is "the greatest breakthrough of mankind", neither more nor less. Is that the first launch into space or the first manned flight? Nevertheless, a measure of enthusiasm must also be felt.
