    Hi folks. I was browsing through the internet today and I remembered all about this forum. I decided to log in (succeeding after a few wrong trial-error attempts and a password change) and look through the subforums. I'm amazed at how this forum is still alive and kicking after so many years. Scrolled through my posts from years back and man, the nostalgia was overwhelming. I was a kid who loved space, real nerdy type with not a lot of friends back then, (still not quite an adult-adult yet) and I realized just how much time I spent in these forums. These were quite literally where I spent my adolescent years, posting and lurking here and playing KSP. With all this, I just wanted to say I'm grateful this community exists. Thank you for all the memories and for fostering the passion for space in me that has shaped my dreams and who I am today. I am now a STEM senior student with a focus on engineering, and planning to take up aerospace engineering. Sadly, I don't think I have time to be active in these forums what with school and life going on but it was great to take a trip down memory lane. I'll be back when I have the time and when I hopefully become an aerospace engineer in the future to post pictures of actual rockets I will be working on without them crashing on the first try. Thank you! PS: Maybe I am now old and smart enough to start an actual career savegame
  2. I’m surprised nobody has mentioned those absolutely beautiful tanks and that Kickback!
  3. At this rate, I'm going to have to invest in a pacemaker. These parts will be the death of me.
  4. Welcome back, rawghi!

  5. Please redo the scanner next as I need to find my missing jaw.
  6. I believe its just a matter of offsetting the struts.
  7. Pregnant swimmer = Human submarine
  8. An explosion happens far away from you. The shockwave takes 60 minutes to get to you. When the shockwave reaches you, the explosion would have happened an hour ago. Same principle. Also related, people who were born at the same time can be born a day apart.
  9. Then, it happened one year ago, didn’t it?
  10. I’ve had bad experiences with Samsung phones. Thus why I prefer Apple because from what I’ve observed it lasts longer. Oh and “better” is subjective. I like Apple products and no one can tell me otherwise. Depends. Too small of a sample size and forum polls tend to be skewed anyway. @dundun93 why do you dislike Apple products anyway?
  11. Nope. Doesn’t seem like it, does it @kerbiloid? Not quite what I had in mind...think lampposts.
  12. My understanding of the OP was that the speed of the treadmill was not constant. If that were so, wouldn’t the plane be unable to take off? There would be no air passing over the wings to create lift as the acceleration/final speed of the plane would match the treadmills. When running on a treadmill, you wouldn’t feel air rushing over you. Wouldn’t that be because relative to an outside observer/ground/air you are actually stationary?
  13. I’ve never even seen an electric car before. Not surprising, considering that you wouldn’t see any charging stations around in my country and electric cars are niche. Yeah the forum doesnt allow you to answer only one as they are “required fields”
  14. Currently in a one month training for an international math conpetition. Wish me luck!
  15. If you feel unimportant, just go outside. Intense heat and pressure at the core of our star fuse atoms of hydrogen to produce helium in the process of nuclear fusion. This reaction releases huge amounts of energy as gamma rays that jump around, being absorbed and emitted. Finally, when these photons reach the surface, they’ve lost enough energy to become visible light. The photons travel at light speed, 299,972,458 m/s. Yet since the appoximate distance from the sun to the earth is 149.6 million km, it takes light some 8 minutes to reach earth. After that, the photons become scattered as they travel through the atmosphere and finally, finally reach the ground, only to be stopped by you.
