China tested a hypersonic weapon the US can’t defend against — Quartz

Bang goes - if you'll pardon the expression - an aircraft carrier or two.

Never mind: the claim of useful anti-missile defence was always baloney. That Reagan managed to fool the USSR with it was a triumph of constructive fakery.
