  1. By the way another point that is really interesting (to me anyway) is quantum entanglement. Fascinating subject that does require a good level of physics to understand. However here is the interesting bit. Currently it is generally accepted that light travels at a constant speed and nothing can travel faster in our known universe. Well it seems quantumly entangled particles can flip their polarities instantly, regardless of distance. You flip one the other flips too. Instantaneously!! If you think about that for a second that means it happens quicker than the speed of c! Which according to current physics is not possible but this experiment has been repeated numerous times with the same outcome. Leonard Susskind goes into this in great depth in his lectures. I highly recommend watching them if your physics/maths is a decent level.
  2. Speed of light is generally thought of as a constant by physicists (in a vacuum of course). The most extreme environment that we know of is black holes where things get really crazy. There are many different theories of what happens beyond the event horizon by respected scientists but nobody actually knows for sure. Of course we can't measure or observe anything beyond the event horizon but without getting bogged down in crazy complex mathematics it might be worth looking at Hawkins radiation and of course einsteins work on relativity. They aren't overly complex just skip the geometrics part of relativity. Also a proffessor called Leonard Susskind (Stamford University) discusses this in great depth and has some really great theories on the matter. Especially Einstein Rosen Bridges i found fascinating. You can watch his lectures on you tube.
  3. If only we could play god.. The problem is that the reason the forces are there in the first place is because of the arrangement of such systems and matter and their interactions together. For example we have the earth and its gravity field. If we remove a proportion of the earth, we remove a proportion of the gravity field too. And so on and so forth. It wouldn't be there to be used in an another way. Conservation of energy... I guess thats physics for you. Interesting post though:)
  4. Life would be very tough out there. And i'm not even going to go into maintenance, repair, breakdowns. If something breaks your waiting a very long time for replacements. But who knows what discoveries might await us below the surface. Would it not be more feasable to expand from inner ss to outer ss placing infrastructure along the way ?
  5. I am interested to know what your views are on 5G technology? This thread could very well be a rabbit hole so no politics please ladies and gents. Just your opinions ideally supported by facts. Thanks I wait in interest..
  6. Haha i wonder what their analysts would make of this? ok were invading:)
  7. If they have sufficient technology to decipher the message then the human race has a very serious problem.. Think about the crap that has gone out over the airwaves in the past century. For example, Eurovision song contest:( we are all doomed.
  8. I like a happy ending. Good job Carl i'm glad it all worked out for you:)
  9. Sterilization might be a bit harsh.. But i guess don't want the little blighters breeding off world heh...
  10. The problem with truth is that it can be subjective. What may be true to subject A may not be true to subject B. We can see this in science, physics and such if we look back historically at how science, information has and can evolve. Lots of people in this world are it has to be said cold hard liers and may so do it for personal gain etc. There is no getting away from this fact. There is of course also the situation where the truth is hidden from us and without intentially lieing sometimes mistruths are passed down generations from parents to children, teachers to pupils and so forth. Totally unintentional they believe it is the truth.. Truth is sometimes overated.
  11. This sounds like the blueprint for a great story. Sort of George Orwell themes in there We could include a role for my dog a kind of '1984' vs 'Animal farm' spin off:))
  12. Very true. We automatically think an alien intervention would bring negatives, but maybe as you suggest positives can come through too... If we did away with lies i know for one my dog would be most pleased. She gets blamed for a whole host of things:) Bless her
  13. Its tiny.. Aero tests i presume but not sure tbh
  14. If its a game your talking about then maybe consider the AI will not let stupid humans make stupid decisions. (In your code of course) The distance you would have to decelerate from said planet is well, astronomical in real life. Its quite pointless to discuss in depth physics here to be honest because real life, physical world doesn't make great games. There would be a lot of down time staring at stars.... I like simulators though but i am in the minority. Probably not on this forum..:) If you can use Newton laws which is pretty simple tbh. You wont go far wrong for what feels right. It will still be demanding though some coders here might advise you the best way.. Obviously on real life, interstellar travel at speed of c requires you to consider GR and SR. I think this may break your computer and the benefits will not be worth it. I wrote a program in python regarding planet/comet collision using only Newtons eq. The pc didn't like it one bit..... but python is probably not the best and my field doesn't require me to code a great deal.
  15. You know what despite its obvious flaws it was a great piece of engineering for the time, quite remarkable for sure. Now iconic. I for one will miss it...
