    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    so fusion or solar dynamics isn't real science? Also you know sci fi means science fiction right? Sci fi is literally based on real science.

    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    Its a magical barrier. It has no temperature. If it absorbed heat then it would be draining heat from the system, which therefore means it doesn't have heat capacity. All energy that strikes the magical barrier is reflected back to the direction it came from. Because the energy is reflected...

    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    The physics are the same except that there is a magical barrier which prevents most energy from leaving the system. What if I said that instead of a magical barrier it was a small, closed bubble of space time where expansion was equal to gravity.

    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    It means that no energy is lost from the system. I also specified that the perfect insulator "prevents anything from leaving". I also never said there is a material that exists with these properties. I'm not asking if its realistic. Read the op again please. I think you're confused. "One of...

    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    A hypothetical is anything where you posulate an assumption to be true. But anyways say that 1 photon every million years is released so that entropy is non zero. But if fusion stops then that means the core isn't pushing outwards against the force of gravity. Then gravity causes the fusion to...

    A Trapping the sun in a perfect insulator

    So this is kind of a crazy hypothetical, but what would happen if you surrounded the sun in an invulnerable, perfectly insulating sphere that prevents anything from leaving. I imagine that as the sun heats up, the rate of fusion increases and the life time of the sun decreases. But that's about...

    B Can a black hole event horizon grow at the speed of light?

    I'm confused on how a null surface, where light falls into the black hole, is moving at all. This is like saying that a shadow is moving; a shadow is just the lack of light though and doesn't exist in any physical sense.

    I Black hole orbits

    why did you decide to do this project in python?

    A What are the implications of a new 750GEV particle to GUTs?

    What's the probability that this particle isn't a statistical fluke? Are there good odds that this is the real deal?

    A What are the implications of a new 750GEV particle to GUTs?

    How would this particle imply other particles? If its a new particle that the standard model didn't predict, then how could you possibly know it implies anything at all? Why couldn't it just be one particle on its own?

    Lines of code and speed?

    What did I say that was inconsistent with that? I already explained that.

    Lines of code and speed?

    I didn't say it had to do with code optimization. All I was suggesting was the lines of code does, in fact, have an impact on performance and speed (in web development), which is what the topic is. The topic isn't necessarily about making the code execute more efficiently based on the title.

    Need an explanation of sliding window for networking

    So I have a school project that requires me to use a sliding window in order to transmit a file to a server, but I'm having trouble understanding how sliding window works. I don't really understand how rejects are done and how the program knows to send a new packet and then move onto the next...

    Lines of code and speed?

    In web programming your code gets minified, which means all the superfluous junk and formatting is erased. This gives performance advantages and lowers the amount of bandwidth required to transfer the web code to the user.

    B What would a supernova sound like?

    I obviously realize that sound requires a medium to go through. However, suppose that there was a supernova and it was magically surrounded by an atmosphere that has the same composition and density as earth's atmosphere. Now, if you were far enough away so you didn't get wiped out, then what...
