SLAM“SLAM” was a cancelled nuclear ramjet missile that could carry up to 16 thermonuclear warheads, travel for months nonstop, spew radiation wherever it went, and flew at tree top levels, killing anyone it would fly over. The ramjet was powered by an on-board nuclear reactor instead of rocket fuel which is why it could fly for an outrageously long time at supersonic speeds. Part of the reason why it was cancelled was because there was no way to safely conduct test flights because of the massive radiation it would emit over the flight path.
