The Cinema-Mad Sibling Recommends: the Navy's Awesome Electromagnetic Railgun

This time the Cine-Sib recommends not a movie as usual, but a video.  It's not just any video either.  It's the footage of "life imitates sci-fi" technophiliac awesomeness as the Navy fires a railgun that shoots a projectile at Mach 8 -- or 5,500 feet per second.  Things go boom.  And the Cine-Sib and I do love it when things go boom!

UPDATE:  Best blog post title for this: "Say Hello To My Little Friend."  I wish I'd thought to do that!
