asteroza + cannon   17

Transactions of the Symposium on Space Nuclear Power Systems, (5th) Held at Albuquerque, New Mexico on January 11, 1988. | National Technical Reports Library - NTIS
The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

So these guys made a fish cannon. Apparently spawning salmon seem quite willing to get into the thing too.

JS LOIC v0.2
Interesting javascript implementation, meant as a way to bypass install restrictions for LOIC in restricted user environments? Or as an ugly hack of a way to recruit other (non-windows) machines for an attack. But, it looks like it doesn't have hivemind mode (probably a practical limitation of not being able to normally access the hivemind control IRC channel)

Ocean Based Orbital Payload Delivery Cannon for $250 per pound
Interesting use of a tensile/tensegrity structure to straighten and stabilize the cannon, coupled with netural buoyancy to cut out a lot of the stresses (though at that size current/tidal forces may come into play).
