The news about China’s test-fire of hypersonic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads shocked US officials and was seen as a game changer. How big is the impact of this news?

The Chinese military launched rockets into space twice this summer, and the rocket flew to a target on the ground after orbiting the ground.

According to the news quoted by the Financial Times, the final result of the first launch was about 40 kilometers away from the target.

When some American politicians and commentators were wary of this remarkable development, Beijing quickly denied the report, saying it was only a test of a recoverable spacecraft.
