The existence of this technology also further validates the fact that energy can be derived from tapping into the quantum vacuum, also known as “zero-point.”

This is actually scary cause won't that destroy space or may be shrink it?

Space is deformed all the time according to gravitational waves. You don't notice it because you're in it and you are deformed with it, and your perception of it is scaled along with that. Space is not "destroyed" (why would you even think that).

You can't warp travel without a Gellar Field, you'll get possessed!

Well, too bad. It needs to be demolished by the Vogon constructor fleet to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

that's just random art nothing to do with the actual device, the tl;dr version is that the device is creating energy "from nothing", for that to be useful we need to scale it and since the only place it can be useful right now is space, they are going to test it in space first (sicne due to inertia and lack of friction the "infinite but small" energy can be used to propel ships).

think of it as having and inifnite supply of 3AA batteries in your home, but you can only use two of them at once.

After months of heated debate and leaked documents, NASA's long-awaited EM Drive paper has finally been peer-reviewed and published. And it shows that the 'impossible' propulsion system appears to work.  Tests carried out by both NASA and independent researchers confirmed that the drive was able to produce thrust in a vacuum that would allow us to reach the moon in just four hours, Mars in 70 days, and Pluto in just 18 months.

Holy shit...if that's true, then we are one step closer to finally leaving our solar system and exploring the galaxy at large(of course going OUTSIDE of the Galaxy won't be happening anytime soon obviously).

The only step that will obviously be a problem is how exactly will we be able to stock ourselves for such a voyage to begin with?

There's also the problem with artificial gravity.

well, we coudl use the free energy to keep the cryogenic devices running, otherwise a bigger ship that is self sustained even food wise.

Yeah and if anything, that's going to be the biggest problem of all...
How would you be able to make a ship big enough to be able to self-sustain even food wise? On top of being able to find something to mimic cryostasis without obviously killing us or destroying our food? I mean I'm beyond game to finally have the means to go outside of our Solar System and explore this Universe of ours, but that's definitely a massive concern.

Change the name of the thread.


We're still so far away from getting to Star Wars/Star Trek space travel technology but its a step in the right direction rather making a man made structure to moon or mars.

An international team of researchers has given the name Godzilla to one of what it calls the modern constellations. The monster is among the most popular film characters created in Japan.

The team, made up of US space agency NASA and worldwide astronomy researchers, announced 21 new gamma-ray "constellations" to mark the 10th year of operations of its Fermi satellite for astronomical observation.

They are different from the constellations defined by the International Astronomical Union, such as Orion and Cassiopeia.

NASA says Godzilla was chosen because the monster's trademark heat ray bears a resemblance to gamma-ray jets associated with black holes and neutron stars.

Other names chosen for the new constellations include "The Little Prince" and comic book and movie character the "Hulk" of the Incredible Hulk series.

The first Godzilla movie was released in Japan in 1954. A series of films featuring the monster has attracted more than 100 million movie-goers.

NASA says on its website that Godzilla ranks as one of cinema's most famous monsters and is among the most recognizable symbols of Japanese popular culture.

This is interesting. If this technology evolves even further a space station can just use a nearby planet to power it up.

No need for Dyson Spheres to be around stars or at least there's more options to select from.

why not just harvest energy from hydrogen or helium they are abundant in universe I imagine.
Title: Re: Space Travel & Cosmology Thread
Post by: Bastard Mami on March 11, 2019, 04:03:14 pm
With current technology the energy required to get energy from them is more than teh energy we get from them, IIRC, the only way it kinda works is using solar energy, but it's slooow; like, if they send a probe to mars witha  solar panel to do the H conversion, it will take it a few years to generate enough energy to come back to earth.

why do solar panel is made flat and not bumpy with mini prism/ pyramid like, next to each other it would have more solar cell within the same dimension, and structurally stronger.

Afaik, costs; some solar power deniers(?) say that building the damn panels pollutes more than just moving to nuclear.

Curious if we can even manipulate it if we can't even touch it that is if it is a particle to begin with.  :book:



For now we'll have to settle for radio wave energy transfers.  :afro:

That zoom in at the start was some satisfying shit. The cool thing is that it's exactly what we calculated and expected since the last few years. Predicting science out of math is strong.
Veritaserum's video on it just yesterday was spot on and makes it easy to understand what we're actually seeing.


Waiting for the shot of Sag A*.
