  1. Even if it isn't, an ideal treadmill would have the same effect.

    Not at all, you just would lose the convenience of art-g and have to make a minor course correction.

    KSP could be an awesome interplanetary combat game! You could hurl giant spaceships at each other, do dogfights in thick and thin atmospheres, and even fight on the ground! There is no game like that right now.

    My question is, why isn't the Dragon 2 destroyed so quickly by the sea, but the fairing is. You could have a four person exercise machine centrifuge thing. Have one of the decks empty with a pole in the center and spin a treadmill around it.
  5. The tangential velocity always matches the tangential velocity of the wheels.

    Exactly. Wouldn't that be a lot simpler than a parafoil boat catching scheme?
  7. The treadmill isn't an ideal treadmill, nor does it match the speed of the wheels.
  8. But you can't pick someone from the future, as you don't know if they'll exist.

    Yep its on NASA TV
  10. Most anti-tank missiles are at least two feet long. Is it possible with current tech to make a tiny missile like in Iron Man?
  11. It doesn't matter what the start point is.
  12. I say no because you could apply it to anything. If you start working for a new car manufacturer, and see a car with the registry number 10, you don't assume the factory will only produce a dozen or so new cars. Note: This is going to be like the airplane treadmill thread, isn't it.
  13. What would happen to the plane if P=NP?
  14. It wouldn't. Either way, it doesn't take off.
