  1. I don't think you should be able to look at the core of the planet through a prop in real life. Something is happening in the graphics department in that picture.
  2. There is a lot of words in that article and it basically says: "we did something, but we won't give you any data or a way to verify what we said is actually true." Why does BO keep winning contracts while they haven't even shown they can get something to orbit? I mean, all those engine tests, suborbital hops and drawings of rockets are basically useless when you haven't even shown your capability to get to space?
  3. Why are they always green? I know it has something to do with their composition, but they can't all be made of the same material, right?
  4. Could a fuel cell with H2 and O2 be a solution? I don't know what the power output of those things is and I'm not even thinking about the environmental impact of pushing water vapour straight into the atmosphere at those altitudes.
  5. Still need a way to store all that electricity. Or generate it on the fly.
  6. Ice storage sounds a lot more logical. I can't wrap my head around radiating heat into space while the ambient air is above zero and then getting below zero to freeze water. Seems very counterintuitive, now, there are a lot of things that are counterintuitive. But this just seems to violate the laws of thermodynamics.
  7. I've read trough all of them, but I still don't understand how it works. How does something get below ambient without conventional compression and expansion systems?
  8. It's very obviously a joke. Don't take yourself or life so serious.
  9. That would only work when the front element (the glass) of the scope extends beyond the hood of the scope and the sun is perpendicular to both snipers. Or when the sunlight bounces of something else into the scope. However I don't think scopes have extending front elements, because a lens hood prevents flaring and other visual artefacts. A mirror will still reflect some of the light. So if there is a insanely powerful laser there is a reflection of that laser. However if the laser is powerful enough to instantly melt/vapourize the mirror the reflection might last too short to notic
  10. Little bit offtopic, but how does ksp work with variable rate monitors? My display goes up to 240Hz but is GSynced. Or does it not matter in anyway?
  11. Oooh man, that would be so awesome. I'd do it myself were it not for the fact that I would have to learn how to and while I'm very good at starting projects, finishing them is a different matter entirely.
  12. Is there somebody by any chance working on configs for Waterfall for Tantares?
