The other thing with moving that much mass is, if they managed to accelerate it beyond terminal velocity maybe with a rocket, it probably could knock us out of orbit..lol

"...The Air Force and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency conducted tests at White Sands..."



If they're going to "test" one somewhere, why not save some money and test it where they want to use it for the result intended.

Fire for effect.

Dear Iran,

Now that you've completed your fortified, subterranean nuclear site (yes...that one that you denied existed). The US has decided to promptly airmail a gift to christen your new facility.

Love,
USA.

P.S. " 'Scuse me, while I whip this out".

I would guess you would have to either flyover with some sort of sophisticated deep penetrating ground radar to lock the grid or assets on the ground

Err, just read the specs and see it is loaded with just over 5000lb of explosives. Well, the Royal Airforce was dropping bombs nearly twice that size in 1944. OVER 60 YEARS AGO.
It was called the Grandslam and was dropped by Lancaster bombers. 9000lb fill of explosive in a 22000lb bomb. Also known as the Earthquake bomb. Each one cost ten shillings and a meatpie for the chap what poured in the hot liquid torpex. I think you all is wasting yous money. Sorry to spoil yer excitement and all.
