Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

And floating bodies that spent the last 10minutes slowly suffoxating, with all the nice visuals, some huggibg each other, some clawing their own necks as they cant breathe... Some still warm, hasn't been that long. Some maybe still with a chance of recovery. Some images that might even haunt whispe...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I think you are absolutely right. In author's defense or a suspension of disbelief, one could argue that they know that there is an atmosphere in that particular section that they are cutting in (and they reason why they don't just use hundreds of other holes already available). But... they said at ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

that is impressive. Luckily the ship in the comic was apparently rotating a lot less. How come that station/larger ship in interstellar wasn't ripped apart is probably only explained by "it wasn't in the script" but it demonstrates the difficulty very very well :-) I think the station was made of a...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Speaking of docking to a derelict, spinning ship, Interstellar comes to mind... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3lcGnMhvsA they were approaching from the axis of the rotation, yet it still wasn't easy. With the ship rotating that fast, the crew that was sitting few meters away from the axis, was al...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Depends on what that superconductor actually is. If it is some kind of a cable, you could just cut it, bend it or just punch it and it will fit. Just stating "superconductor" - at least for me - is a material, not an object. It's like saying, that we need to replace coal at the core of a stove. Or -...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I really wonder what RASF's role is in this, and what their role will be. They may end up being the good(ish) guys. Crimson Dark has shown us in the past that there is no black&white in their universe in the past.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

For example, I wonder if CPUs could be made out of superconducting material. That would mean no heat! (or at least, significantly less heat as Today). And much less power required. Imagine you smartphones with a power of a desktop computer for example... (sorry for triple-post, but I am really excit...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

...or freeze solid due to lack of power for heat... Actually, that is probably one of the last reasons to die in space. Space itself may be cold, but it is one of the best thermal insulators, used for example in thermos. In fact, a spaceship is one giant thermos which can lose heat only through rad...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The 27th century has superconductors that can operate at room temperature. Even now, they is one superconductor at mere -23C... except that you need an absurd pressure of 170GPa. (https://interestingengineering.com/researchers-set-new-high-temperature-superconductivity-record) I do expect scientist...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Oh... so there is still a fight out there and Kari takes a nap?
Well, she deserves it, but my point is - I am surprised noone is shooting at their inoperational ship...
