Wormhole question

Assuming the negatove mass produced by exotic matter in something like a mach effect device produces a sort of negative gravity, how many Gs wouod it take to produce a wormhole/warp field, and do we have materials tuat cam hold up to it?

Re: Dark matter theories

As far as my knowledge goes, there is no known object in the solar system that spins faster than their matter "tension strength" allows to. So I don't really get why he need to hypothesize that there must be "exotic material cores" in the center of such objects to justify something that is already ...

Re: 3D Printed Nuclear Reactor

I had a setting where peolple wanted to build heavy lifters discretely. Since the second stages would continue to be used in space and they weremt as concerned about being sued, an NTR would suit there purposes well. I was thinking a monolithic SLS silicon carbide build for the core. Carbon dioxide ...

No one ever did an audit of other satellites to see if the oddity he found was more consistent.

Re: Dark matter theories

If a tiny asteroid weighs a million tons, it's going to be obvious in it's orbit and those of objects around it. Like a few other crazy theories I've seen, it's easy enough to test it's not worth mentioning without the results of the test. I believe he is referring to rapidly spinning asteroids tha...

Re: SpaceX News

Read an article recently on Europe's launch systems. It talked about what I recall was like a decade of plans, but no mention at all of developing a reusable rocket in the Falcon vein. Blew my mind.

Focus Fusion news

Anyone else here following Focus Fusion on Facebook? I could do without the climate change junk, but they're showing bits of the assembly of their new reactor. Ultrasonic soldering, beryllium, and safety boxes.

Re: What the heck is this GreenNh3

So how much trouble would it be for seals and stuff- - actually building an engine? Plus safety matters. Plus security, this is an explosive component.

What happens when a truck with 500 gallons of fuel crashes on a highway through a suburban area?

So how does the need to spend weight on more shielding affect the weight savings?

Was it here I was reading about him wanting to use steel?

It's not just strength ratios to worry about, a mostly carbon fiber rocket would have a different radiation risk.

Re: Extraterrestrial colony companies

Talk about thread drift. I just went back and looked, there were a couple of posts about financing with the bank idea, but none of the rest directly addresses the idea of colony mutual funds and such for financing individual or group colonization.

More financing. More sustainable, in some ways.
