Re: Lockheed Martin’s Compact Fusion Reactor

It concerns me that they don't seem to understand the difference between the words "can" and "could". And to answer the D/T question, yes, it is a very hot chain with significant activation, embrittlement, and flux concerns. I also have to wonder about patent overlap with Polywe...

Re: SpaceX News

Dang! Missed it. On travel in DC. Been pretty busy. Had some great discussions with a former Senator of note as well as a former AF Chief of Staff. We even talked about space. :)

Re: Water based propulsion for deep space efforts

The irony in all this is that space propulsion is easy. The real problem is we have no patience for moving about in terms of cosmic scales.

Re: SpaceX News

First launch I haven't seen in a while. It is like NASCAR without wrecks. What fun is that? In any event, they deserve the honors accorded for coming so far, and so fast. I am excited to see further Falcon Heavy progress, as well as BFR. Being on the ground for a BFR boost will be SPECTACULAR. I'll ...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

It is not about the court case. It is about outing methods and sources. This is a shot fired at the Russian Cyber Ship, and scoring a hit, "you aren't as smart as you think, and now you need to wonder what else we know you are doing as we were willing to out you on this..." The court case ...

Re: SpaceX News

I have also wondered this. Or even assisted guidance towards the recovery vessel net. Have them chase each other.

Re: Skynet is coming.

Here is another article talking about the "weapon" from The Drive. They also are skeptical and discuss how the Chinese article appears to be worded as aspirational vice declarative. http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/21925/no-china-probably-hasnt-built-a-laser-assault-rifle-that-can-carb...

Re: Skynet is coming.

I agree that the article was general and unclear in many aspects. Carbonizing for example can be unpacked in multiple ways. For example, how large is the affected area? Pain is also subjective on many levels. Try to unpack that one. Of note is that this calculator does NOT account for distance and a...

Re: Skynet is coming.

China, like Russia, and others loves the idea of information campaigns. They are comparably very cheap when compared to actual functional capabilities and capacities. The part those who like information campaigns don't tend to understand often are the unintended consequences. Sadam comes to mind. As...

Re: SpaceX News

The yawn effect has even passed. Did no one notice that CRS-15 flew this morning. The last of the Block IV Falcons laid to rest in a successful second flight. The capsule is also a recycle.

You guys... losing interest so fast...

Re: EMC2 news

That would be helpful. It may not be necessary, however it would be helpful as it could provide some maneuver space.
