    What exactly is a space warp?

    Asteroidal bombardment

    Oh I have magical starships with fancy weapons but I just like to get down and dirty, it's fun. Rocks are free, nukes are cheap and they're both destructive.

    Does light move as a wave ?

    I'm not a professional physicist but I know that the way light moves through a fiber-optic is pretty hairy. Light phases in and out. This might have something to do with the wave nature of light. I know it gives fiber-optic technicians a hard time.

    Asteroidal bombardment

    I was thinking about how the "main stream" sci-fi shows have the magical starships with their fancy weapons and that's great but I think if they want to show how war will be fought in space they should know,a good general studies strategy but a great general studies logistics. The first thing...

    What SciFi universe would you live in?

    I wouldn't live in a new sci-fi universe like AVATAR among others because they assume that all habitable worlds will have sentient life. This gives the feeling that we have no place to go. That's a miserable outlook and I think many sci-fi's have succombed to this idea. I don't find that...

    What SciFi universe would you live in?

    I could live in my spaceship in my universe because when I hook up I am the spaceship. I feel every electrical impulse the ship is me and I command the voluntary functions of the computer. I sense the sensor stimulus and control the response. My ship has the ultimate of defenses and offensive...

    What SciFi universe would you live in?

    I think I would like to live in the total recall universe; stop Arnie from activating the terraformation of Mars, because since Mars has no major scale magnetic field all the air would blow off in a couple thousand years or less anyways, and mine the turbinium to build starships to colonize the...

    What SciFi universe would you live in?

    Larry Niven's Universes. Known Space or the Co-Dominuum.

    Pumping space-time

    I consider myself a science fiction inventor. I have recently theorized a space-time pumping machine and want to use it as a faster than light propulsion theory. I really like to make my inventions very close to real physics and wonder if anybody knows concretely whether space-time can move...

    I'm just obsessed with Star Trek. Anyone else?

    I was totally obsessed with trek watching the original series, then the motion picture with V-GER. I used to go to great lengths to memorize the shapes of the starships of star trek drawing them over and over. It inspired me to draw some of my own starships with friends who also drew their own...

    Galactic time-keeping

    Some multiple of plank seconds I would think.

    Nuclear pile powerplant

    Maybe I haven't been clear. The point is that I don't want to use any kind of reactor. Fission can be caused to melt down and Fusion can be caused to overload and detonate. Could a huge mass of radioactive material in an isolated part of a space station supply power without matching or exceeding...

    Nuclear pile powerplant

    I have a basic understanding about the fissioning process in atom bombs and in nuclear reactors but that's not what my question is about. It's about a nuclear pile of a radio-active material. A pile of the element to power a space station of considerable size like say 500,000 Metric Tons. Is it...

    Graviton Drive: Is this plausible?

    Kind of a depressing prologue is it the artificial intelligence speaking? Also I agree with vemvare, too much technobabble. Maybe; is it possible to manipulate the Higgs field or generate Higgs bosons? I'm not a quantum physicist. It's just that gravitons have not been proven to exist. Higgs...

    Graviton Drive: Is this plausible?

    Where are you getting the initial energy that generates the antimatter that provides you with energy? I mean it sounds like star trek. star trek runs on antimatter that is loaded onto the ship in containers. Star trek basically runs like batteries. the ship doesn't have the power to generate its...
