Hypervelocity impact.. 4.2 miles per second according to Reddit. Metal ball is just for show; original projectile vaporized on impact. Creddit as well... The first thing I saw was an evil face. Mad MS Paint skillz.

What kind of projectile? or was it just a ball as in the picture?

"This image shows the results of a lab test impact between a small sphere of aluminum travelling at approximately 6.8 km per sec and a block of aluminum 18 cm thick. This test simulates what can happen when a small space debris object hits a spacecraft."

Makes me think about railguns.

Those things are just awesome with some of the new ones having a muzzle velocity over 5,800 m/s , accurate enough to hit a 5-meter target over 370 km away while firing at 10 shots per minute.
