文章原始标题:China Built a Hypersonic Generator That Could Power Unimaginable Weapons


Turning gas into plasma creates an intense electrical current for powering potent hypersonic weapons.
Chinese researchers built a hypersonic generator that could power military lasers, rail guns, and microwave weapons.
The relative compact nature of the hypersonic generator opens the scope of potential uses.


Chinese scientists say one formidable explosion inside a shock tunnel can turn hot gas into the most powerful hypersonic generator a military has ever seen—strong enough to charge military lasers, rails guns, microwave weapons, and more.


The Chinese scientists were able to use a controlled detonation to turn hot gas into a plasma filled with racing ions, which converted to current. With shock waves accelerating the compressed argon gas to 14 times the speed of sound, the charged ion-filled plasma then passed through magnetohydrodynamics generators to produce electric current up to 212 kilowatts while using .26 gallons of gas. That’s enough power for a burst of energy unlike anything available now in a compact system.


“It has a large capacity and high efficiency," the scientists write, via the SCMP. “There is no need for intermediate energy storage components. The energy can be directly transferred to the load without a high-power switch. And the device can start up quickly.” The generator also has no rotating parts, increasing efficiency and ease of use.


With some of the largest weapons in development requiring a gigawatt of input energy, the researchers say they can produce that with 177 cubic feet of hypersonic plasma (that’s smaller than most vans).


China isn’t ready to deploy the new system just yet. There are plenty of logistical hurdles to sort out in how to transport a device that requires controlled detonation, and just how to handle the gas needed for a second charge when on the move. Still, if the next iteration of the science offers up an automated reloading of the technology, China’s hypersonic weapons just got a colossal burst of power.


That's the reason we won't survive as a species. Anytime a breakthrough is made, the decisions discussed are how can we use this as a weapon, not how can we use this to benefit mankind. And I'm not talking about Chinese, Russians, Americans or any other nationality; I'm talking about humans. We could all be living in a paradise if people could get along, but that's not our nature. - UP: 286 DN: 7

I believe this is a fake news, because if it is genuine, the CCP will never release this weapon information with technical details, because it has always been regarded as extremely confidential by China. Therefore, it is most likely that the CCP deliberately unveiled this false information in order to intimidate or fool the West. - UP: 0 DN: 1

That's the first question that occurred to me too, Harvey. If the process can "produce electric current up to 212 kilowatts while using .26 gallons of gas," there has to be a capability to power electricity for peaceful applications.

If US tech is so great why arent Russia and China using it? Most U.S. hypersonic weapons, in contrast to those in Russia and China, are not being designed for use with a nuclear warhead. As a result, U.S. hypersonic weapons will likely require greater accuracy and will be more technically challenging to develop than nuclear-armed Chinese and Russian systems. Who invented hypersonic technology?Hypersonic weapons have been studied in China since the 1950s, notably by rocket scientist Qian Xuesen, known as the country's “father of space technology”. Qian proposed a design for a hypersonic glide vehicle as early as 1948. - UP: 1 DN: 1


According to ChatGPT: The first hypersonic missile was developed by the Soviet Union (now Russia) in the late 1950s and early 1960s. This missile, known as the Yu-71 or the R-37, was a long-range air-to-air missile that was capable of traveling at hypersonic speeds, meaning speeds in excess of Mach 5.The development of the Yu-71 marked a significant milestone in the field of missile technology and represented a major advance in the capabilities of air-to-air missiles. It was considered to be one of the most advanced missiles of its time and was widely regarded as a significant technological achievement.Since then, several other countries, including the United States, China, and India, have also developed hypersonic missiles, and hypersonic technology continues to be an area of active research and development. These missiles have a range of potential military and civilian applications, including fast global strike capabilities, hypersonic cruise missiles, and hypersonic gliders for use in reconnaissance and surveillance missions. - UP: 0 DN: 0

根据ChatGPT生成:第一枚高超音速导弹是由苏联(现在的俄罗斯)在20世纪50年代末和60年代初研制的。这种被称为 Yu-71或 R-37的导弹是一种远程空对空导弹,能够以高超音速飞行,即速度超过5马赫。Yu-71的研制标志着导弹技术领域的一个重要里程碑,也代表着空空导弹能力的一个重大进步。它被认为是当时最先进的导弹之一,被广泛认为是一项重大的技术成就。此后,包括美国、中国和印度在内的其他几个国家也开发了高超音速导弹,高超音速技术仍然是一个活跃的研究和发展领域。这些导弹有一系列潜在的军事和民用应用,包括快速全球打击能力,高超音速巡航导弹,以及用于侦察和监视任务的高超音速滑翔机。
