    General relativity tells us that you can't just make a little hole in baloon. It tells us that if you pierce a balloon, it will simply pop.

    Honestly, I wish that balloon was red just so we could all play 99 Luftballons as we watch footage of it being shot down.It’s be even more hilarious since it would have come from a Communist or “Red” nation adding even more irony to the song.

    For a more detailed description of the shoot down, check the Ward Carroll You Tube channel. They did sort of like Fran suggested, hitting the balloon with a missile but no explosion. Presuming that they recover the debris, it will be interesting if the public finds out what equipment these balloons carry. BTW- all modern US fighters have a rapid fire gun for certain situations.

    It reminds me of Capt. Beefheart’s song “the blimp, the blimp!”

    China could be doing a test run for an EMP attack later. But is there a way to tell if a balloon has a radioactive or biological weapon in it?

    Looks like the balloon the Russians shot down about a week ago…

    I love that Ed Wood intro of this presentation. Besides humor, you bring up some interesting items such as what sort of items it carries, and also properties of high altitude balloons. I was thinking of amateur radio balloons where hams put together latex balloons carrying a APRS, some with a repeater or a camera. California Near Space Project had some latex balloons buoyant at 100K that were able to ride the jet stream across the country, Atlantic, and over north Africa. Then there was this same concept applied by Japanese during WW2 with balloons to travel over US to start forest fires. And early attempts of recon balloons Air Force experimenting in late 1940s, which one landed near Roswell. Seems like China is taking this to the next level. But maybe they're just doing this to cause problems.

    cool tune at the end credits.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ka2rwp1 says:

    they couldn't shoot it down until it flew over a non populated area.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ka2rwp1 says:

    The YF-22 Raptor shot the balloon down it has a 20mm Vulcan Gatling gun.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ka2rwp1 says:

    fighter jets can be armed with anything missiles conventional and nuke,also guns such as the Warthog that has a 20mm Gatling gun.

    Stealth with a crossbow is an answer 😁

    The Balloon was going around the world in 80 days!
