Creative ways to alter an ICBM's flight path post-launch
January 20, 2014 10:19 PM Subscribe
From what I understand, there is no way to alter a Minuteman III missile's course once it has launched, other than someone shooting it down. But in theory, if someone had had secret access to the missile itself at some point before the launch, could they install something that might be able to alter its flight path during the boost phase, in some manner?
