I suppose its possible to convert a mass driver into a giant railgun but as always theres a flaw in cost & effectivness
YH but it will drop and you could get fined 100$ 0.0
it would work i imagine but what would be the point a laser would be better and more effective
yes it would fire. i do not see or can i imagine scenario which presents a moon cannon as a good idea. as it may make cosmic species to see us as violent and warring race of beings. also' the cost would bee so huge. i wonder though if NASA ever landed any projects though on the dark side of the moon.
We already have stuff orbiting Earth and there's probably something there already
A rail gun would fire in space.
Yes it could fire, the oxygen needed for combustion is built into the cartridge. But not sure how effective a projectile weapon would be on a spacecraft designed to withstand asteroid impacts.
this may be true but i can't imagine they are designed to hold highly pressurized gas ie... one earth atmosphere in a vacuum.
I think the gas would escape the the weapon would be ineffective if not useless.
The entire concept of a firearm is based on directing highly pressurized gas.
try the love gun
you will need a really big sling shot to get it up there, plus a lot of string tied to the trigger so you can shoot it, i just hope you dont miss
It would and, presumably, the shell would keep going indefinitely if it didn't hit anything.
