Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I was going to suggest the very same thing. The highest bandwidth and most precise communication technique that we have today is inter-sattelite laser communication. - It's light through vacuum - so as far as light speed communication is concerned, you can't get much faster. - It works over thousand...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Low yield is actually very important. It tricks the targeting computer into a close range attack. "Soft impact" tells the targeting computer the "warhead" is delicate and needs a low impact velocity to be effective. That means whisper will move slow relative to the station. A medium or high yield wa...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Maybe she plans to slow herself by crashing headfirst into Mr. Creed, and hopefully take his head off while she's at it. It would be an improvement for him ;) It would be very surprising if Mr reed should chose this very moment to make an EVA to deal with the threat personally ;) Fun idea though. K...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Is Whisper on the outside of that fighter because it's a one-seater? Or because she wants to jump off and infiltrate the station EVA style? I suspect the latter. There's problem though. Ships, including this fighter, will have some sort of inertial dampeners to make high G manouvers bearable on the ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

If you want to sneak up on a station, the best approach angle to stay unnoticed is probably the same as an aerial sneak attack: Come directly from the direction of the sun. Well if it was the ISS probably yes if they don't have some sort of general search radar. But a station in the CD universe wou...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

flashing a light through a window in morse code I think at close range this literal setup might actually work in space. If the ship is powered down, and there is no nearby star behind, then the flashes should be easily noticeable on the black background. Depending on the light source this is very e...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I can kinda understand why the controller of that particular station is particularly paranoid about suspicious craft approaching without clear and background-checked intentions. I wonder how they are going to proceed from there. This vessel will more or less get every single security unit on that st...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I don't think becoming a mind-linked collective under the watchful mind of an all-knowing all-seeing "benevolent AI" would be the answer though ;) Your loss. For one thing, such a benevolent AI would probably realize that global resource depletion and climate change are a much more pressing issue a...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I still think the problem that the protests in the States want addressed goes deeper. Or rather, there's 2 problems. Problem 1: Racism. Minorities ( black, hispanic, immigrants of any kind, ... ) are constantly being discriminated. Sometimes open and systematically, sometimes because of everyones su...
