China is now the second superpower a place the U.S.S.R once held but now that's china's place. I say this will lead to another cold war. What does everyone else think about this?

Who is ready for at least another 50 or so years of grueling Deadlock and the stockpiling of Nuclear weapons and the requirement of nuclear bomb shelters? Oh and having constant nuclear bomb drills.

If its in space aliens will blow up our @$$e$.

A cold war is far from bieng as simple as that. It's political deadlock and the stockpiling of weapons, It only ends when one nation cracks and cannot keep up. and if we tried to bomb them they would nuke us out of existance faster than we can say "We're screwed". Oh wait I forgot vietnam which makes the triad actualy a Quatret.

The second cold war may be humanity's last major event if it becomes a hot war. If not humanity then democracy and capitalism will see it's last gasp or maybe it would be communism and socialism. Whatever the case will be in the future. Whenever the case will happen. +I DONT WANNA END UP AS RADIOACTIVE DUST!!!!!

War will always be around as long as sentient life exists. It's a fact. Sentient biengs always want to be better than other sentient biengs are around. And when they are the only sentient species around they'll start attacking other member's of their species.

The mind wants to conquer. Even the most pacifistic of biengs want to prove their dominance and get more. Even if it means the annhialation of others.

"it's only 25 miles in diameter. The earth has survived a collision with a mars sized planet. The planet in particular was orpheus needless to say Orpheous is destroyed and because of the collision we have a moon, the seas aren't 60 miles deep, and cepholopods which are octopi, squids, and cuttlefish don't rule the earth. And we can easily destroy that meteor with a 100 megaton nuke which russia has built. It would outright INCINERATE that asteroid."

Yowza. 100 megatons? When are they planning to use that baby....

It's a version of the tzar bomba. It uses a uranium 235 absorber or whatever it's called, the fast neutrons created by the nuclear fusion reaction ram into the uranium 235 atoms creating a runaway reaction which doubles it's explosive power when compared to a version with a lead absorber/thingy/thingamajig/gizmo.

They are developing an anti-matter bomb. One miligram of the stuff is the explosive equivalent of 1,652 hiroshima bombs. An entire gram would outright obliterate any of the asteroids in existance in an instant or leave make a permanent crater. A kilogram would destroy a planet as large as jupiter and all of its moons and severely screw up most stars. A metric ton would outdo a supernova in raw destructive power. a 1,000 metric tons and we would see everything in a 100 light year radius disapear. A 1,000,000 metric tons could destroy most galaxies. a 1,000,000,000 metric tons would be visible from the other side of the universe, a 1,000,000,000,000 metric tons of anti-matter could devastate the entire galaxy cluster, a sun sized star's worth of the stuff could practicly destroy the universe outright.
