16. A hypersonic missile

striking a refinery, tank farm, gas farm, chemical plant, or major pipeline juncture will do a HUGE amount of damage. Also, dams, nuclear reactors, peaker plants, trains yards, large buildings (twin towers were destroyed by subsonic aircraft). Imagine what a hypersonic boom would do to the glass of skyscrapers in a busy downtown. Imagine one at a Superbowl. How would human bodies cope with the shockwaves generated by a Mach 6 missile striking a stadium?
