VIA| If you’ve heard of YouTubers such as Colin Furze or Grant Thompson then you probably love a bit of science, engineering and blowing things up. Ziggy Zee is no different, but for this particular stunt, he went green.
I’m not sure that ‘green’ is synonymous with ‘electric’ but I like to think that this 250 pound electromagnetic railgun is a way of making firearms accessible to the environmentalists. The incredible weapon “uses current to generate extreme magnetic fields that propel a conductive projectile to high speeds”.
For another incredible rail gun, check out the U.S. Navy’s new one – it can hurl a shell at 7 times the speed of sound.
