In the future, missiles could deliver immediate disaster relief

 The outlook wasn't good. If the missiles were ever launched, not only the U.S. and Russia, but the entire world would have been plunged into a nuclear winter from which humanity would likely not emerge. But now, the clouds of that potential Armageddon could be parting.

At Japan's University of Tokyo, doctoral student Huai-Chien Chang has proposed the redeployment of these deadly relics of a bygone age — as vehicles of disaster relief. These humanitarian ICBMs, loaded with everything from food and water to emergency generators and fuel would be capable of reaching any corner of the globe in a single hour, just like their deadly predecessors.

A lot of States have laws against shooting into the air, especially in populated areas. Once in a while a little tiny bullet hits something. What are they going to do, crash these BIG BULLETS at the airport?
