  1. One needs to remember that the reason sci-fi generation ships always go wrong, is because there wouldn't be much of a story otherwise. The story "eh, everything was fine. People played videogames a lot", just isn't very much of a story.
  2. Utilizing the power of Logic I would assume the rod would release about the same amount of energy it took it to get it to orbit. So about a pad explosion of a rocket's worth of fuel. This is a lot more boom than a rocket fired out of an airplane. This is a lot less than a nuke.

    Has Halley by any chance predicted the orbit of one of those?

    Radiation? Cmon, let the Vaebn make a riddle again

    The answer was: Olber's Paradox ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olbers'_paradox ) And/or in terms of long answers, a universe where it holds true. Not this place, but another --- Hint that it's something hypothetical. Infinite and grander --- The size of it. Told you it's pretty literal My stars light up the sky --- Actual descriptions of the sky conditions But no life has ever seen them --- Hint that the conditions aren't good for life. Why? I said that the "parallel universe" answers were super close, however this is actually about a very specific case of them. It was actually a relevant cosmological thought experiment, long before any sort of quantum theory (so nothing to do with that), or inflation theory (so nothing to do with randomly generated physical constants). The reason I didn't feel comfortable with the "parallel universe" answers is because: a) it's not actually "parallel" to anything. Someone can make an infinite amount of alternative universe just by having a "a little bit stronger gravity", or "a little bit weaker nuclear forces". However, none of them have been such an important point of reference, to even have their conditions summed up by a name. In fact, it somewhat depends on the physical laws not being too different, having only to do with size. Anyway, Starwhip can go next ^^

    Kay, I'll give the answer tomorrow, if you don't find the answer by then :c

    Hint 2, with cherry and cream on top: Not this place, but another Infinite and grander My stars light up the sky But no life has ever seen them Why?

    Hint 1: It's more literal than you think

    N.n.n.n.n.n.n.nope. As I said, this is super close. However it is both a specific concept and with a specific name. When I what it is, y'all are going to look back into my riddle's phrasing and say "oooh... duh" Nope.

    Nope Super close, but believe it or not, you can actually get more specific. Nope

    Nope. Nope. To be honest the answer is fairly geeky. But there are two words that would be exactly 100% right. (longer explanations regarding the correct concepts will also be valid) I think even Cosmos did a brief mention to it in an episode, and I mean, brief.

    Based on the post "which was closest", I says, "the unobservable universe". Aka, the part of the universe which is not causally linked with us, due to the speed of light's limit.
  15. Ok, no need. I got it! For all those wondering about the answer. First I extracted this texture and took a look at it: As far as I can tell, this is the in-game texture's actual size mind you, so... yeah. However, after zooming in a bit and applying some advanced neural, noise reduction algorithms, (aka plenty of experience solving @£%!$ captchas), I am now quite sure it says: [ HOSE ATTACH POINT ]
  16. Hello peeps I have been making my own LV-N texture, for a "high-res" LV-N model, and I have been trying to understand some of the the lettering on it. The N-86D is pretty clear obviously, but I just can't seem to make out what the yellow letters near the "long tube thing" thing. So, erm. Yea. Does anyone with superior fuzzy letter recognition skills and/or secret texture knowledges have any idea what is written there?
  17. I think that generally as a rule of thumb, if you have units and theories named after you, you have probably been good I find it kind of cool, that Tesla does have a unit named after him (The Tesla), long before he became a bit of an internet fad, but Edison doesn't. And it gives me a feel good feeling in a "all scum will eventually be revealed for what they are" way.
