Firstly, This is not a double post... even though from all appearances it might seem. I can't explain further because rules. Now moving on... Before we get started, thanks for the input. Questions... 1. What would happen if a ship using a Genesis Drive (Explained what this is below) activated it in Earth Atmosphere... or really any Atmosphere? I know something would happen, just not sure what. Imagining that the field activates and the air inside is going to travel along with the field then let's say it moves a kilometer in an atmosphere and the field is 1 meter in diameter. This is done in less than a second. This would cause the air in front of the field to enter into the field and build up on the outside while at the same time behind it near 0 is being released, leaving kilometer long vacuum essentially. So what happens here? 2. How big would a rocket that is sent from the Earth to the Moon (one way trip) need to be using this unnamed liquid fuel described below? -- A bit more explanation. The fuel I am thinking that it would work similar to a chemical rocket where the particles particles are coming from the fuel to create something like an explosion and pressure which can then be directed out causing thrust. This can be done all at once or in any smaller fraction so I am thinking, but I'm sure as I don't quite know the math, that every MJ of energy released would produce 1 Newton which would result in very high instant thrust being possible. This sounds like it is achieving what I want but I'm not quite sure in numbers that are more familiar to me. 3. Colonizing the moon and mining it... Peary and Shackleton Craters are going to be be domed cities, but these are fairly far away from the Mares which have really good and easy to access resources. I was thinking to set up a 3 "city", more of an out post that mining bases use as central place which have a roadway between those 2 polar cities. Where would you suggest putting this base? Also, I want a 4th colony on the far side, somewhat disconnected, where is a good place for this colony? 4. Assuming, the use of the unnamed liquid fuel described below, would space elevators make any sense at all? 5. Any suggestions on names for some of this stuff? 6. Do the following fictional things sound plausible as possible explanations. Such things are not real obviously, but do they sound like any of these could exist; Genesis Field - A genesis field is a supra-dimensional field that causes space to be created or destroyed (and it's polarized so a polar "north" field creates spacetime, and "south" field destroys it). This type of field is what is responsible for the continuous expansion of the universe. Our universe sitting on a field that continuously makes it expand. Matter is decoupled from space in this so it move probabilistically to the space that was in front or behind the space that was created or destroyed. When 2 Fields interact with each other, if they are within a given angular tolerance which varies with the field the fields combined into 1 field, much like a magnetic field. If the fields are outside this angular tolerance the field has a chance to destabilize. This chance increases as the difference in angles increases. If the field destabilizes it will do so after it travels 1 Light day and due to the instability just has to be waited out. If a field opposite of an established field overlaps the fields will cancel each other out instantly, but if a field is unstable it can't be nullified. ------------- Basically this is a Warp Field... but without most of the problems of a Warp Field. Jumpgate technology - Creates a transition point into a higher dimensional plane of timespace. Think of it like as time progresses the number of possibilities increase and in doing so this creates something like a globe of possible timespace coordinate with each point of time space being essentially flat. The gates provide an anchor point to regular spacetime while the ships is able to plot a course along this time globe to reach it's destination. Traveling at a regular speed along the straight timeline will result in no change in travel time and traveling using a Genesis Drive will cut the time as much as it would normally. Why use the Jump gate then? because much like when you draw a straight line on a curved surface and then flatten it out you will get a curved line the same principle happens here. A ship can plot a "more straight" trajectory over the time sphere to arrive at the destination up to 10 times faster than a trajectory through the the flattened curved surface of normal spacetime. --> Subtopic here - "The Schism" Is a 100 LY in diameter sphere "wall" caused by an inversion of this technology. As far as I have figured thus far it is unknown whether it let's things in or out, but I'm leaning more towards lets things in but not out. Does this sound like something that could come from this technology? Unnamed Liquid Energy - A type of exotic matter that allows for generating virtual particles with an energy of 432,541 Mj = 1 uL. The matter is not being converted to energy, but rather it is allowing for the virtual particles to be pulled from another dimension into ours. As the amount of energy is pulled through and used the liquid is destroyed. The energy in the matter used up to pull the energy over. Infinite Energy Generator - A device, roughly the same size as a nuclear reactor, that opens a small tear into other universes and takes energy (or matter) from them. The universe having infinite universes means that there is an infinite pool to draw from. This sounds limitless, but it is limited still by the amount of energy that can be physically drawn off which isn't unlimited, both by physically attaching cables and the amount of current that those cables can carry. It's also not very useful for physical matter as physical storage, transportation, and other such things would cause it to be activated and deactivated which would end up using more energy/material than it would produce.
