I remember reading about this when I was a kid.  I think Popular Mechanics or similar had an article about it with illustrations.  Pretty cool.

It's all fun and games, until all the other countries start developing the same technology.  Now that we're doing Rods from God, everyone else will too, which gives everyone something to shoot at with their satellite interceptors.

This is going to be very exciting.
