How Would We Stop a Nuclear Missile?

Most of us are hoping that any nuclear threats are just empty threats, and getting at the facts about ICBMs can be difficult. But what would actually happen if someone launched a nuclear weapon?

Congrats to scishow. I personally took years before I could cope with such a sad and devastating topic.

2:10 US battle plans in the 50's and 60's was to intercept and shoot down the Soviet bombers over Canada. They would have used nuclear equipped air to air missiles with a blast radius as large as possible (Perhaps a mile or more) to destroy as many as many of the enemy per missile. This would have resulted in Canada being showered with melted, radioactive aluminum. I am not Canadian, but it I were I would not be very happy about it. I guess it's just lucky Canada is populated with Canadians, and not Americans. Canada rocks.

Its only fair that America gets hit by a nuke, just as they nuked Japan

Lol no we nuked them because they attacked us viciously on Pearl Harbor. We didn't do it for no reason.

There's a problem: catching it in midspace is very hard to do, and shortly after reentry it will split the warheads and activate decoys which will show up several thousand targets on the radar.

Are these statements true? Can anyone confirm?
Snowwie88 (2 месяца назад)
Lasers would do, if the United States put up a network around it's borders then it's possible. Powering them should also not be a problem. Keeping them out of sight on the other hand is more difficult.
Kumquat Lord (2 месяца назад)
So, to intercept the nuclear missiles, we basically apply the principles of jeet kune do. Neat!
Jack Frost (2 месяца назад)
I call bs! Because we do have tech that can destroy a fly in mid flight 1000s of miles away making them deadly accurate. All I’m saying.

Trust me people I know for a fact that the us has a space based laser defense system. I can’t say how I know obviously but as he said we were working on this in the 80’s. Officially the Star Wars project was shut down. However most people don’t know that it continued. It actually was given more black budget funds. We had a significant breakthrough in the 90’s and we are capable at this very point in time to defeat an icbm with a laser. Open till the launch of the X – 37 they were satellite-based however this is the main role of the X-37. This is why it flew for as long as it did just to prove it could do it. And that laser system mounts very easily to the X 37. Now if we were facing multiple Rockets fired from multiple countries we would not be able to stop the mall but we do have the capability to stop some.

Make a giant trampoline and watch the nuke fall back to the country it was launched from
roflcopterkklol (3 месяца назад)
I fail to believe they can unless they catch it before it gets to space or while they are in space. the warheads from a nuclear missile re enter earth at like mach 30... you ain't stopping that.
GoldenShower Potato (3 месяца назад)
couldn't you just put a simple coating to reflect/deflect the lazers energy. That would cost almost nothing compared to the billions, trillions it costs to make a laser defence system.

listen me carefully,when the missile comes from up to down ,before reaching 1km we launch a rocket just in direction of a bomb ,to catch him and put that far away up as we can and done.fb valdrin demiri

R&d in Electromagnetic pulsar deterrents, with a focus of preventing the binding of heavy and light nuclei using emp technology that would infact neutralise or activate positrons cancelling out the binding fission chains at the point of detonation greatly reducing yield in even the most advanced hydrogen bombs. Problem solved.

All these plans, and strategies to overcome a nuclear strike...rly amazing but why would you risk striking in the first place? I just don't get, it's not like any other weapon we've had so far, this is something that even if it does end up destroying the target, collateral damage could weaken and destroy the launcher itself too
Zane Shute (2 месяца назад)
the launcher would have to be cartoonishly close for that to happen, would it not? like, how would an american nuclear missile silo be damaged if it struck a russian target from thousands of miles away?

Too small and slow for a MIRV warhead.
SkypredatorGaming (5 месяцев назад)
Have you people heard about the speed of these missiles when come down to its target from 5-7km/s yes per second, there is nowhere in the world such a defense system to stop such a speeding bomb, and one more thing, the Russian ICBMs have a dozen fake dummies in it, fake missile distractions that make even 1000% harder to predict or to know which ones are the real Nuclear warheads. You got me laughing with "US has Infrared Satellites blah blah" please man there is no stopping of such a thing as the Russian Satan 2 the Sarmat. The government will make you just believe that some shield exists to protect you, but in reality, they don't have nothing. What the THAAD that's a deadly weapon.Just pray no one lunches one to another one.

King Duudel (5 месяцев назад)
This is the main way to stop an icbm. There is also a secondary way. The United States military has small arrays of laser, yes lasers, set around the contiguous United States. They use X-ray like tech to find where the nuclear warhead is located and target the activation system. The lasers are also used on military planes, for example, a c-130, to distract targeting systems in smaller missiles.
MrCristianposso (2 месяца назад)
How do you think today's technology lasers are gonna affect a MIRV?
Spartacus XLVI (5 месяцев назад)
Unfortunately we only hit the missile target 60-65% of the time. Not very reassuring.

In other words, you can’t stop an ‘all-out’ nuclear strike; the only sensible nuclear attack strategy that would take place.

Zane Shute (5 месяцев назад)
"Not that difficult," sure, but even for a solitary missile, the track record is hit-or-miss. And then, yes, as you say, throw in a salvo of missiles, and it's a whole 'nother story.
King Nevermore (5 месяцев назад)
Zane Shute Its not that difficult actually, but the problem is if there are multiple missiles in the air flying different trajectories.
Zane Shute (5 месяцев назад)
Good luck intercepting any missile, for that matter.

So say North Korea launches a missile at the US, the US has many allies with nukes themselves bound by treaty to launch in kind. The US can probably shoot down a couple dozen missiles while jamming 8,000 nukes down Kim's throat. Not even counting the US missiles, North Korea would be wiped out in an hour. Well done, you shot a bear with a .22

Wanna destroy a large part of land with about 25 million? USE ANTIMATTER it’s contained in a thing and if it not in it it will explode and make a giant explosion basically bring a gram of antimatter and throw it on the middle of North Korea boom half of it dead.

we do we have to hit the nuke directly with a missle? why cant the missle we fire at the nuke blow up befire contact, causing the nuke to be destroyed by the blast radius? woulnt that be much easier than trying to precisely hit a nuke head on???

Why not install lasers or missiles on satellites, so that the nukes can be intercepted while they are at lowest speed and most vulnerable? Both lasers and missiles should work better in the outer space.
