1. ### NCl3 (Nitrogen-TriChloride), a new fuel?

I work at a Pool store where I have many chemicals laying around me. One day I got bored and started toying with the idea of what can I make out of these chemicals. So concluded, here is my Equation: NH3 + 3 HOCl = NCl3 + 3 H2O Simplified: (1 part Ammonia) + (3 parts Hypochlorous...
2. ### D8-Branes What do they bring?

Ok... I feel dumb asking this... but is Minkowski's spacetime the 4D we know of (3+1)? and if that's so, then is Euclidean spacetime = 1/(3+1) *reciprocal*? or is it just negative? (never understood Euclidean spacetime, probably the root to my total confusion)
3. ### D8-Branes What do they bring?

Huh? Ok, you lost me. Can you explain a bit farther? I though I understood at but now I seem to be lost again. I think it was your sphere-mapping equation... Try starting there ^^
4. ### D8-Branes What do they bring?

You are correct... I am referencing Kaluza-Klein D5 Electromagnetism. Question: Why only 2 and 5 branes? (I'm confused still on how you come to that conclusion) Thank you for clearing that up. I actually understood that ^^ So my question is: Why do they end on D9 branes...
5. ### D8-Branes What do they bring?

I understand that strings are D9 existing in 10 dimensional space (9 dimensions + 1 time) but I don't understand the significance of D8. I do hope that I am explaining my question correctly... I just want to know what the compactification of D8 does to spacetime.
6. ### D8-Branes What do they bring?

In the theory of superstrings (super due to the addition of supergravity) D-branes are compactified on a circle. We know, theoretically, that D5 is compactified to give us electromagnetism. Then there is the M-theory that gives us D11 as supergravity. Now the only question I have, which I...
7. ### Do objects actually shrink?

Nothing at all... they are going back and forth over a simple issue... there is no contraction... its fundamentally unreal... its as you said: the opinionated view of the looker in that if they stand still, it looks normal... if you are moving with the object it looks to contract... its a...
8. ### Do objects actually shrink?

Perhaps this is simpler than we think... could it just be gravity? As the particles accellerate they compress due to the gravitational force being exerted upon the object? This would explain for any "shinking" and would also fit in with inertia in that the larger it is the harder it is for it...
9. ### Energy CAN be made

Thank you for explaning that dst. To be a bit more correct it would equal a negative number because there is never a perfect convertion in nature... there is always friction, momentum, weight, etc to deal with ^^ but I don't believe people get the point... the point is that you cannot simply...
10. ### Energy CAN be made

Purpose of saying that was to show that you always have the two things cancel out (both sides of an equation OR the energy needed to create the potential energy to turn into kinetic) Rational thinking and a low tolerance for ignorance is all that is needed.
11. ### Do objects actually shrink?

I believe the total mass (or length of mass along the axis of movement, of which I honestly forget the technical term) of both rockets AND the rope will shrink keeping the rope intact if you remove the rigors of spaceflight from the problem ^^ Just my opinion :P
12. ### Energy CAN be made

Think back to mathematics people... an equation (basic algebra for those who don't follow this field professionally): 16 = 8x + 24 how do you solve for x? set the equation to equal to zero and solve. (it's -1 to simplify things a bit :P ) My point being that you cannot create energy...
13. ### Extra Dimensions in String Theory

Ok I understand, for the better part, that this topic is dead but I need to explain something for those who read over it. String theories ,mainly the SuperString theory, use a scale of 10 dimentions to describe locations of strings (and to allow for the existance for fermions and bosons in...
