Mach 12 projectile. Considered seriously as a weapon that would be accurate?
Mechanical target comps on ship were impressively accurate. But energy transfer accuracy to the projectile and air density energy absorption.

With all the testimonies, videos, radar signatures, official statements from pretty much every level of the government and a lot of it coming out very recently. I think it's safe to say the UFO phenomenon is a very real thing. There seems to be very advanced aircraft zipping around our skies and our oceans. What we don't know is the origin of these craft.

Now, where do they come from? Are they of extraterrestrial origin? Inter-dimensional? Some think they may even be humans from the future time-travelling and observing. What if they are our own craft? Is there somehow an elite group of people hiding exotic technology/physics from the rest of the world? How long have they had it? So many questions regarding the UFO phenomenon.

What do you guys think is the exact mechanisms by which they craft get their propulsion and energy. Is it anti-gravity? Maybe it's only gravity reduction or perhaps involves the bending of space-time around the craft? These craft while many come in different shapes and some seem to move differently they all seem to have one thing in common which is that they don't use any of the three methods of lift we know of.
Also, why do so many glow or give off light? By product from it's propulsion/energy source?

I hope we actually get disclosure but if we ever do it will more than likely be a water-downed version.

That's written by Eric 'Skinwalker Ranch' Davis man. He also managed to get some juicy contracts writing research papers for that AATIP program. Something more serious would be written by leading physicists but (e.g. as part of the JASON group) but not all of their output is unclassified.

This guy is for sure privy on some things and has his hands deep in secret things. Guidelines on UFOs for private and military includes contacting Bigelow's company. He has spent millions on the research of the subject since the 90's and openly claims the existence of a UFO phenomenon as well as existence of some of it being for extraterrestrial.

Classes are of very little importance. What really matters is what you do outside of class, which is the whole purpose of giving students a loose class schedule so they have lots of time to take advantage of all the opportunities to do interesting shit at an Ivy.

Of course this mindset only makes sense if you actually have a thriving department with lots of stuff going on in it.

You could show the Merlin 1C rocket engine to the team building the F-1 and nothing about it would be novel
>>
>>10827509
Just out of curiosity, why pick the Merlin 1C over Raptor in your example?
>>
>>10827514
Because everything about Raptor would be novel to them of course. Hell even a lot of shit going on inside Merlin 1D would be new to them; the equivalent engine at the time was the H-1, which weighed more than twice as much and produced less thrust than the Merlin 1D and at a lower Isp as well. It also cost a shitload more money and time to build, which was part of the reason why Saturn IB was so expensive. Showing Merlin 1D to a 1960's engineer at NASA would be like showing a medieval longsword to a roman soldier who was used to wielding a gladius; he'd recognize that it was a sword, and had all the same parts to it, but also that it was undeniably better in every aspect. Showing a 1960's NASA engineer Raptor would be like showing them a magic trick; I doubt that anyone working on engines then would even believe you that the thing would fire without instantly burning up due to the oxygen rich conditions.

It kinda already happened when the RD-170 (and related engines) were brought into the US.

Although to be fair to the American rocket engineers, the Russians were pretty amazed by the hydrolox engines developed in the US, IIRC. It was just that American rocketry was alot more public than Russian, so it came more as a shock when good Russian engines became known.

What kind of complex life-forms might evolve on a gas giant?
17 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
Maybe thermophillic, spherical masses of prokaryotic life forms. Although wind speeds are incredible there, vortexes exist and some can last quite a long time. If these colonies were able to develop in a way that created an internal vacuum, then they could float in the dense gas despite the higher gravity. I don't think it would be beyond all possibilities.

No, it's more like summer and winter fur. It's genetic if you tan or not. You can be very white and tan or brown and not tan.
>>
>>10827427
Summer and winter fur are also adaptions meant to protect against changing environmental conditions, but fur is moreso for cold temperatures than it is for anything to do with UV. Tanning is the same. You tan in the summer to protect yourself against the suns rays. Yes there is a genetic element, but you will only tan if exposed to sunlight or other UV light. If you spend the entirety of the summer indoors and in shade, you won't tan. You can even tan in the winter if the sun is out enough and you go out in it. So tanning is certainly more of an on the fly adaptation to current environmental conditions than anything else.
>It's genetic if you tan or not. You can be very white and tan or brown and not tan.
Most people do tan to a degree. Very brown people might not tan as much because there is no need for them to do so, since their skin has the long term adaption of high melanin levels due to longterm evolutionary changes. White people have more of a need to tan if they go into a more UV exposed environment, and of course tanning on a white person is more noticeable. Inability to tan is pretty rare and is a form of albinism, a genetic defect, since this ability is actually pretty important for most humans on Earth.

I guess what I am rambling about is that tanning is a genetic but it is also a real time adaption to whatever level of UV you are currently exposed to. If the body decides to tan it is because you are in an environment that the body detects has a high level of UV. It is very likely that if you are tanning you are also accumulating cellular damage, which is why the body needs to react fast in order to protect itself against the sunrays.

wrong, testosterone is necessary for a healthy life and deficiency is associated with a lot of diseases, aside from just the lower quality of life you will get as it saps energy and in effect the amount of life you live in a year. Women don't need a lot of testosterone because they're not evolved for it. Test does nothing by itself, it only interfaces with cell receptors which have a sensitivity and effect depended on the tissue and lifeform.
