      Spinlaunch is a meme. The benefit of the launch velocity is barely worth anything. It would be far cheaper and far easier to design payloads for a launch vehicle that just had a low performance solid motor instead of getting launched from the accelerator they're trying to build.

    As a person who is not actively working for CERN but has in the past. You can get a guided tour into the area where the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is. Unfortunately you can't, to my knowledge, put anything into the pipes the size of poop. It's a pretty airtight vacuum in there. About as vacuum as we can make vacuums.
    Also it's one sometimes, so don't go in when it's on or you'll die of radiation poisoning :)

      @Sigurd Jensen Still plenty helpful! I barely a Phsyicist or an engineer, just genuinely curious. I basically wanted to work on a sci fi story that uses a made up element and explores subjects such as transhumanism, AI and the like in a Thriving Utopia / of a Metropolis using a made up element. I know " real original", I just wanted to get some pointers from people in the field.

    • Sigurd Jensen
      Sigurd Jensen 8 days ago +1

      @Ty_teynium I am not sure I understand the question. Many parts of the world already use nuclear energy for everyday use with a nuclear reactor.
      If you mean particle fission, using that as an every day energy source seems like a bad idea as the tech is right now, due to radiation, and the fairly high risk of malfunction resulting in meltdown and a lot of radiation spilling out.
      Fission is a process used for heating stuff up, which wouldn't do much for our modern appliances which rely on electricity. A fission reactor converts water into steam pushing a magnet, creating electricity. To create something like that for an everyday appliance wouldn't work because we don't have enough uranium on earth for it.
      The other method is fusion. This is an expensive process, but it is much safer than fission. It requires a lot of energy input, but afterwards it becomes self-sufficient. This is not really doable for a local small appliance in real life.
      If we go more into a science fantasy setting, a house could have a fusion reactor which is always running, which you could connect your household appliances to. As for batteries there could be a fusion reactor in their place, but to start the reaction you'd need to harvest some energy from the main reactor. That said, some radiation is still present for fusion, so the appliances would have to be properly insulated.
      I do not believe it would make sense with the current methods for converting heat into electricity, and having any reactor in your home, seems like a huge liability, and the amount of either radioactive material you'd have to carry around, or the amount of water you'd need would be annoying.
      TL;DR: Fission is dangerous, fusion is delicate. Neither would be convenient in a car/phone/hair dryer, and a local reactor in a house seems silly, because you could just make the same reactor, slightly bigger, and provide multiple houses (which is what we do already).
      All this said, I don't actually know much about the subject, I am only an engineer after all, not a physicist.

    • Ty_teynium
      Ty_teynium 8 days ago

      I have been working on a story incorporating some elements of Sci fi involving Nuclear and Particle energy. One question I've had was is how safe or convenient is it for everyday use? What are some things to keep in mind when studying it, and what are some unanswered/ unsolved issues regarding its uses?
      Edit: Okay, so turns out I've had a *few* question 😄

      @Drew Feille it's kind of a tautological, but still useful, statement that asteroid belts are made up of asteroids, so a planet can't be part of an asteroid belt. That then gives a minimum size for planets based on their Hill radius, in a roundabout way.

    one thing i love about the "do aliens exist?" debate is how someone approaches it. like if both parties believe that life on earth is very unique and know how massive the universe is there is two ways to argue their belief/non-belief in aliens: "our life and existence on earth is so unique that it is impossible to recreate it in a similar way anywhereelse in the universe" and the other being "the universe is so massive and unknown to us that it is impossible to be the lone intelligent lifeform" - either way i love theorizing about this topic.

      No he didn't: the problem remains tensile strength. Parts of the cable are being help up because they are suborbital. Earth's gravity and rotation means no material can hold such a cable together.

    You reminded me of Laika and I do not like to be reminded as her story is always changing based on who is telling it. But one thing is for certain - she was the best astronaut and always will be.
    Sidenote: I am surprised you mentioned the poles of Mars and magnetic launches of shuttles but not stabilising Mars with a magnetosphere that would help with the storms as the theory is that putting magnetic arrays on the poles would do so. And, the best place to land on Mars is anywhere near a stable underground lava tube because it a wide enough can work as a base. There could be water downwards as well we do not know. I'd like Venus explored more as it turns out most of our assumptions about it were wrong but getting anything there is a hurdle.

    Don’t forget that when Eris was discovered, it was a candidate for a tenth planet. It was soon found to be smaller than they thought but still slightly larger than Pluto. Haumea, Makemake, and a couple other known objects are also comparable. The rationale was that they needed a new category for these Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud objects. It feels like an arbitrary distinction to me, though.

    For the space elevator, you're right that you can basically just pull things across it if you have a strong enough rope and it's anchored in the right place.
    Anchored in the right place means geostationary orbit. You still have to fight Earth's gravity to climb up it but it's waaaaay easier than putting things into orbit with rockets. The moon isn't in geostationary orbit so we generally think about using an asteroid or artificial station as the anchor.
    The strong enough rope is the big problem. Even carbon nanotubes aren't strong enough.

Then a painter suggested not painting the tank and that somehow took off enough weight for the math to check out lmao.

    If anyone wants to know about some underrated space shows here's two that I know:
    The Expanse series on Amazon Prime Video. Based on a book series it takes place centuries in the future in our solar system where war between the United Nations of Earth and the Martian Congressional Republic are in the brink of war. While the Belters are oppressed by both governments varies terrorist groups form the Outer Planets Alliance to attempt independence. All the while an alien life form threatens the existence of humanity. Praised for depicting life and combat in space vary accurately. Note: the books were written when it was assumed there was not much water in space, now we know there's plenty.
    For All Mankind on Apple TV (an original). An alternate timeline where the late 1960s the Soviets get to the Moon first. The Space Race continues as both the U.S. and the U.S.S.R one-up each other in space colonization. Water is discovered on the Moon 50 years earlier, helium-3 stops climate change, economic priorities are geared towards space exploration and communism becomes more mainstream around the world.
    There are probably some others but I don't know them.

      @Jay Eisenhardt The are stars smaller than Jupiter. Size isn't what determines what a star is or isn't.
      There are too many of objects with size of Pluto. The very reason Pluto was classified as a planet was because its surface was brightest for an object that far out that could be detected with technology of the time, nothing to do with size.
      It's also specifically because of Pluto that scientists were pushing for redefine what planet is otherwise we should've gone instead of 9 to 28+ planets.

      @NewPaulActs17 There is difference between having moons/objects in orbit and having objects in the neighborhood. Having clear neighborhood means that there are no objects around that are NOT ORBITING the planet. So our Moon is orbiting the Earth, Jupiter's moons are orbiting Jupiter, however Pluto is too small to clear the neighborhood, and so there are objects around it that are not orbiting Pluto, they are just flying around orbiting the Sun, just like Pluto. Charon is also not strictly speaking orbiting Pluto, they are kinda orbiting each other and so like IH said in the video, if you want to consider Pluto a planet you'd have to consider it a binary Charon-Pluto planet, not to mention the dozens and dozens of other objects that would all suddenly classify.
