defending against hypersonics

... in the news today, I read that the new threat from
above is hypersonic glide weapons

... essentially you just launch a bunch of space-hardened
cruise missles, straight up if you wish, and let them
glide to their targets anywhere on earth

... they are hard to detect, since they descend without
power ... whats to distinquish them from a small meteor?

... how would you shoot them down?

... what is the mathematics of it all?

... my first guess would be to use lasers

... fast targetting laser systems

... I was telling a friend the other day, that the
gods allow war on earth as a way of increasing our
technological levels ... the wars themselves are
inconsequential for the most part

... they, the gods and goddesses, are trying to promote
earth to a true space age civilization

... remember that old equation for the likelihood
of intelligent life in the universe?

... well there was one factor in it, which was the
likelihood that the wanna-be space civilization
would destroy itself with the technology, before
attaining space wisdom

... we are in that deciding phase right now

... it is these few generations who will decide
whether earth makes it, or not, to the next

... well, my body is full of aches and pains now,
so my unavoidable death, seems as a release for
me ... something to look forward to, not fear

... the pain of the material body, will make
you want to leave earth

... I was told by the inner spirits, that I
will live as long as I can bear the pain.

... it is rapidly becoming a Star Trek world,
and my pains are great, but I stay alive so
that I can eat some ice cream tommorrow
