Chinese researchers claim they have developed what the media is terming a ‘force gun’ that purportedly uses magnetic plasma rings to manipulate distant objects in space, almost reminiscent of ways the Jedi in the Star Wars film franchise use the force to move objects with their mind. Little information is available about the mystery weapon, but if it exists, it could theoretically be used to capture enemy spacecraft, alter their orbits, or even cause spacecraft to crash into each other, all from a safe distance. Now, according to a report from the South China Morning Post, a team of Chinese researchers working for the National University of Defence Technology says they have invented a device that can manipulate objects from a distance without any direct contact, potentially marking a critical advancement in space warfare technology. Published in the Chinese-owned peer-reviewed journal Systems Engineering and Electronics, the primary component of the frightening force gun is described as a “magnetized coaxial gun” that can generate repeating waves of hot, electron-dense, high-energy gas in the form of plasma rings. When these plasma rings are shot from the force gun at the rate of eight per second and purportedly travel at 10,000 meters per second, which is twenty times the speed of sound, they inherit an electric current, which then generates a magnetic field that is in opposition to the magnetic field being created during the plasma discharge. Notably, this process also creates magnetic field lines, which become “frozen” in the plasma itself. This is significant since it means the effects of a magnetic field can be transported with the plasma ring as it travels through space. In fact, according to the researchers involved, this gives their force gun a range of up to a kilometer. In practical terms, that means that a spacecraft equipped with this type of device could exert an opposing force on an object while remaining at a safe distance and never coming in direct contact with the object…(READ MORE)
