In 2017, the US had a nuclear weaponry storage or deployment of about 4,018 nuclear which is not a small number. In the upcoming 30 Years, the country plans on spending an estimated $1.2 trillion for advancing the nuclear cache. The operation and maintenance of existing weaponry and other infrastructures along with modernizing the technology is the strategy for equally distributing the budget in the nuclear weaponry sector. In short, the US will spend $300 million per nuclear weapon on maintenance and advancement.
Currently, SpaceX plans on giving flight to its BFR by 2023. The SpaceX BFR will help pull down the cost of carrying cargo to space and can also be reused in the future. The orbital kinetic weapon will be given a new spectrum by the new technology. The space technology-based firm has already lowered the cargo to low earth orbit travel cost from $5000 to 20,000 per pound by using Falcon Heavy and Falcon 9. The space scientists plan on giving wings to the SpaceX BFR 10-50 times per year in case the launch costs grow to about $40-200 per pound. Looking at the speed of building 400−500 raptor engines per year, the company confirms the idea of flying 50−65 BFR by 2028. Lately, the country is planning on purchasing around 200 SpaceX BFR each at $70 billion for boosting production.
After thorough researching, the US Air Force and Navy have concluded that the tungsten rod kinetic energy weapons are the best owing to the costs, reserves, and its ability completely destroy or disable its targets like buildings or airfields. The hypersonic speed with which the metal piece hits its target would totally destroy everything within its area. Even the hardened targets including reinforced structures and underground bunkers can be struck down. The orbital pure kinetic energy weapons’ flexibility and the precise levels of damage places it at the Hiroshima level devastation. Another gem in the necklace for SpaceX’s dynamo Falcon 9 rocket is that it has received the certification of “Category 3” rocket by the Launch Services Program (LSP) which gives it the chance to explore the space in the next few months.
