Science and Astronomy Questions

29358 Do you think that galaxies further away from us would be more massive?  Would the earliest galaxies formed probably contain the most mass? While there are some very massive galaxies far out in the depths of the universe who dwarf our own Milky Way, it would be wrong to say that there is a dir...

Light pollution

Paint can add up in overall weight surprisingly fast - especially if it is specially-treated to absorb light (since these additives would make the paint thicker and thus heavier). This won't make much difference on small satellites - but bigger ones would require more paint. Since most of these comp...

I take it that the infrared map of Titan is a temporary feature of this version? From what I have seen of DoctorofSpace 's work on  planetary palettes, photorealism seems to the aim of the engine when simulating planetary features. It seems a bit unrealistic to have a infrared map of Titan while eve...

28876 Stellarator, do you find having authority figures a good thing? Yes I do, but we must be aware of their limitations and create laws or regulations that curb their interests so that they are doing what is best for society, not themselves or their peers. "What is good for society" is ...

Summary: The most well-known conspiracies of our modern age are catalyzed by a crisis of confidence in so-called experts, and seem keen on undermining your trust in authority rather then seeking out any truth, however misguided the premise of that search may be.

28843 What makes you say that it's chances of supporting life are minimal? Perhaps it is my inner pessimist, but even if the planet is the perfect mass, has an atmosphere, and is within the HZ of it's star - that does not automatically mean it will support advanced biological life (by advanced, I d...
