Re: What if Venus was Actually Earth Like?

I am very sure that present day Venus's atmosphere is so thick it's pressure alone would crush human's and most earth life. I recall a model that showed the surface layers moving as fluids even though they were several hundred degrees. At least hot enough to melt the last probes to be sent there. T...

Yup after a 3 year unstoppable bromanse it's all dead to him because of one little fact check. 😆 P.S. as I understand it there is literally nothing he can do by executive order, he needs Congress and that means asking which totally pisses him off to no end for some reason so I guess we will see just...

Re: Cost Effectiveness of the Jedi Order, or, Why the Jedi are the Good Guys

How does a normal cop deal with a criminal that can wave his hand and say, "these are not the pic-pocketing kids you are looking for" and poof they are off the hook? The Force poses a much greater implication than just look cool I can grab things from across the room or push with out having to touc...

Re: Cost Effectiveness of the Jedi Order, or, Why the Jedi are the Good Guys

Scenarios where learning to use magic or psionics or The Force or whatever requires years of dedicated, careful training for even the most inherently talented always make me wonder how anyone learned how to use the thing in the first place. After all, someone had to be first. How did that person fi...

One thing the Jedi do that some deem to be evil or at least unethical is their method of procurement of new Jedi.

Re: Voter purge USA

I just don't get it, why won't people make getting a Gov. recognised photo ID a priority so they can vote and shit? Can't we all agree that people should have to prove who they are beyond, "hey I am so and so just trust me" so that they can then cast a vote or what ever? Jesus just get a photo ID!

Re: Your opinions on collision attack between spaceships

This guy on YouTube (he goes by the name Isaac Arthur) goes into great detail discussing possible weapons that a real alien civilization could use to attack us and basically comes to the conclusion that no space craft is unarmed. Why you might ask, well if they have the speed to break orbit then the...

Re: Does space dock even make sense?

What need do they have for a station that huge ? Because once you have mining/manufacture ing in space all you have to do is just keep adding to the station and you can reach mind boggling sizes for very little cost. You still have to justify that cost. The more station you have the more ships they...

Re: Does space dock even make sense?

The problem is that a uniform ring around the planet does not exert gravitational attraction due to shell theorem*, and by extension is not attracted by the planet either. Spinning it will not do anything to prevent this. *Shell theorem was first proven by Newton, but is easiest to explain with Gau...

Re: Does space dock even make sense?

Large stations are one thing, a planetary ring is well beyond that. Halo-type ring stations that are set in a conventional orbit would only need to be strong enough to hold together if spun, but a rigid ring that is wrapped around a planet would have stability issues. Namely, it wouldn't be orbitin...

Re: Does space dock even make sense?

It's plausible that warships cost more than an equivalent volume of space station - maybe high-grade warp drives are like 80% of the cost of a Galaxy-class, I don't know. I think I will second this notion, piston engine's in cars are like 10 to 20 % the total cost but turbine engine's can are reall...

I really can't understand why Starfleet does not have more Halo like ring stations like big enough to go around planets big. See Corellia of starwars for reference.

Re: Scientists claim to have restored cellular activity to the brains of dead pigs.

Donation organs will cease to be a thing once we fully fund stem cell research.
Once that is figured out then you can make all the organs you want. You could even take the DNA of the patient and make a better organ for them.
