What do you think about the super flare of the star Proxima Centauri?

Mouthwash on Science Communication and Scientific Literacy

I skipped page 2 because my eyes were developing a dangerous layer of glaze (and I'm low on time)... so delete this post if it has been said already, but the core issue of divergence here appears to be that Mouthwash, you seem to believe that the "information" "informing" an &quo...

Space engine: Expedition to Lacaille 8760

That was a fun read. It made me imagine what a real voyage like this might be like. I hope humanity can reach this level of technology.

Good job on the restraint - no life, just an interesting alien system.

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

15320 Destructor, I respect your view on Enterprise, but I myself enjoyed it, but it was by no means the biggest failure. Discovery has that dishonour. I believe one reason (among many, I'm sure) why you didn't like Enterprise is because it didn't focus on philosophy, but on war . No, that was not ...

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

Telling people not to believe lies without attempting to debunk them is an inneffective strategy. Nevertheless, it did prompt me to research it a little. Bad Robot is not involved. Alex Kurtzman is involved via his own production company Secret Hideout. It's possible SH is some kind of BR derivative...

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

[EDIT]: Doc. MIND BLOWN. I hadn't realised the contractual bullspud surrounding the visuals between Kelvin and Prime timelines. This is such a clusterfrak. [/EDIT] Exactly Harb - if the changes were in service of making Discovery a better or more realistic vision of the future as outlined by Trek, t...

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

The back-swept deflector is a little strange for the period, too - but then Enterprise's Squished deflector on the NX-01 was already weird: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/inconsistencies/enterprise/deflector.jpg (Yes, I know it's literally the TOS deflector vertically squished) Note: I'm not sayi...

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

Wow! Where did you get the model?

Lovely model of a cool looking ship, but totally agree that it's incongrouous as heck.

Shouldn't you still see city lights in an eclipse shadow?

In real life, if you were viewing a planet from space, watching the shadow traverse across it, you'd still be seeing a lot of sunlit surface around the shadow. The sunlit surface of the Earth is thousands of times brighter than artificial lights, so your eyes or camera would have to reduce their exp...

Do you play ships?

7819 Sometimes you arrive moving at 23948273459249825034958290 km/s and are smacking into the surface before you have time to achieve orbit. Yeah - why does this happen? The ship's autopilot jump routine syncs its spatial velocity with the target object (doesn't it?) before engaging warp, so we oug...
