    The proper name is indeed "mess", either "crew's mess" or "officers' mess"/"wardroom". For space stations, we cannot know yet for sure (most likely will be "mess" just like in ships), although for any foreseeable modular space station design there is no distinct mess module as the typical maniacal mass-saving leads astronauts to eating anywhere they can do that, and the ISS normally has only six crew. Additionally, in zero-g it is not always required to use a table. On the other hand, having at least a partially enclosed space for a mess might help prevent food from getting everywhere, although space food is chosen so that you don't have to clean any breadcrumbs after eating...

    Is there some software that would allow me to convert my morse code, made by pressing a key on the keyboard, into a graphics format, like a digital version of a physical machine writing received signals on tape?

    pure Stock Starship Enterprise

    For Tylo of Jool... I thought that is impossible to build! I assume it uses mods for propulsion, and its engines or whatever are not located where they are in the actual Star Trek vessel, or otherwise it would have imbalanced thrust problems?

    Why do passenger cars usually have a "pushed-in" area on the doors, between the wheels, marked with a red arrow on the picture below? Or, as one might say, "pushed-out" wheel covers relative to the rest of the car's body? Is that good for aerodynamics, or some other weird technical reason, or perhaps just an artistic design trend?

    Advanced radiative cooling through meta-materials

    The title of this video is a violation of the second law of thermodynamics. So to build this device, we would have to find an alternate universe.

    Venusian Atmospheric Density

    Hey, nothing wrong with 1 atm of pressure at 320 K -- if you're an balloon fanboy.

    SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Block 5 will still get improved, by the time it gets to 24 hour multi-reuse it might well be called "block 6", however these upgrades are likely going to come out with every launch, so no more revolutionary "blocks".

    If a nuclear reactor gets rid of primary loop water (the water in contact with the core), how are radioactive elements typically removed from it?

    Supersonic RC-Plane does is possible?

    Space rockets are basically supersonic rc drones This is a target drone converted F-16 (the QF-16), I do not know if it ever flew supersonic operationally but it definitely can still do that: If you mean amateur aircraft without rocket propulsion, the fastest speed according to Guinness World Records is still corresponding to the end-of-ww2/superprop speeds:

    [insert politician saying "wrong" meme here] In my definition, half-size screws have half area. ofc I totally agree that 1 screw is harder to cavitate due to blade tip speed E: Thing is, cavitation is not so much dependent on screw area as on tip speed, that has a tendency to create low pressure spots... This just got me a crazy idea... what if you fitted your sub with a huge screw to maximise area relative to tip speed... like wider than your boat

    Then, those long and sleek competitive rowing boats have been officially tagged as REBELS and a reward shall be set up for capturing one alive and bringing it to the police station of Earthrace or average sail racing dinghies! ikr thats prob the reason 99% time, but it's always that stupid little 1% that leads to eureka Is there any known watercraft guru on this forum? //EDIT: If it's proportional, then two half-size screws are equivalent to one full-size )))))

    Sorry, there is no single project name other than some weird abbrevations/codes or general descriptions like "Soviet moonshot". Soviets/Russians, unlike USA, don't give official nicknames to unfinished projects and even if some military/space technology becomes operational, they often keep the older, less creative name or abbrevation. That's how we ended up with a large number of Kosmos xyz spacecraft (or almost-spacecraft). My question: Why do most boats and ships (except submarines) have a totally blunt stern? Isn't the ideal hydrodynamic shape a teardrop, ie more rounded front and finer back, just like submarines?
