    Future of game visuals!!

    Not to mention that faster FPS actually results in a... somewhat dizzying effect. I've only been able to experience 60 FPS recently and to be honest it feels odd because my vision system probably isn't used to a no-blur scheme. And to be honest, the use case will actually be very limited to recreational uses. Training simulations prefer to actually reduce the visual details because you want to be sure they can operate it in all conditions.

    "Rokkit Syense" in CW's "The 100"

    Often if you strip the "science fiction" away from many science fiction they sell better in a different genre. That's my concern. It's still an epic on the same (or even greater) proportions of Moby Dick, though. If you take the science away it's just Captain Ahab under the sea. Yup. I haven't read or seen the thing though, this is almost cold reading.

    The story used to be a novel ? I'm guessing this is one of those stories that are better told as novels rather than moving images. Quite possibly the tech was a distraction from the key intricacies of the plays as is made in the book. Why I'm often wary of labeling anything science fiction !

    Mars 'impossible" to terraform

    A worse statement than "well, the Antarctic have water".

    The space disco ball thing ? Mayak ? That's not a layer of stuff though.

    ... unless you're growing them in floodplains.

    Mars 'impossible" to terraform

    It means a higher crop production in one area. Which means you need less land to get the same amount of harvest. Which means less resources used. Combine that with slightly less consumption per capita plus other sources of food and you get the reason why Java can sustain a population density of 1000/sq km (3000/sq mi) easily. (this is on par with Bangladesh.) EDIT : We also rely on rice, which hasn't changed too much from their wild counterparts AFAIK. Not really, it could be larger but emptier (idk but here we would call it kopong).

    I wouldn't give good reviews on that. Sure, it's possible to grow crops year-round, but that has been around since the first farming in certain areas*; In other respect "gearing up" means more tertiary demand, which means more less-essential crops and/or non-local produce, which means more lands than otherwise. But I'll say that gearing down isn't a bad one. Many manages to survive on such measures. * : Farming here. This article says it all. Excerpts :

  14. Hypergolics means it'll work nearly every time. Cryogenic means it could work unless it has all boiled off. Hyperbolics... Have you used the nuclear blast again ? You shouldn't use hyperbolics for Earth-Moon transfers...
