High-Tech Railgun Promises to Give Military Powerful New Advantage

Pentagon officials, with the help of their very own version of Tony Stark, have come up with some interesting gadgets meant to both save lives and take them.

The man behind these contraptions, the Pentagon’s own “Tony Stark” goes by the name William Roper, who graduated summa cum laude from Georgia Tech with a master’s degree in physics and a doctorate in mathematics at Oxford. He was also a Rhodes Scholar, Truman Scholar and received a presidential commendation for founding and directing a tutoring program that helped over four hundred schools in Georgia.

With the help of Roper, the Pentagon has been putting out 3D printed micro drones, self-driving boats and electromagnetic railgun that can shoot a large projectile at 4,500 mph, which you can watch in a video on the next page.
