increase the size of my pecker

Unobtain it
>>
In a future with space travel? Probably figure out its composition and simply replicate it

>>177171119
snort it
>>
>>177171119
step on it and make it into 3 kilos of unobtanium then text everyone in my contacts saying I’ve got 10/10
>>
I can totally imagine a plebbitor scientist discovering a new material and calling it heckin UNOBTANIUM xD have gold kind sir

What's more valuable, unobtanium or spice from Arrakis?

WOW IT'S THE BLACK GOO MACGUFFIN OF UNORIGINALITY.

SO HECKLIN COOL SCIENCE MARVEL

>durrr, I have never liked a single movie in existence because they're not realistic enough for me nor did they invent some actual groundbreaking new technology to justify their presence in theaters
>>
>>177171226
We have 0 clue what unobtanium even does, but they set up massive mind melding, space faring, venture capitlist projects to obtain it. So likely pretty fucking valuable.
Spice also required a shit ton of set up and investment, but at least grants cool visions and some enhancements.

Yes, we do. It allows a global network of high speed maglev trains as well as use of antimatter reactors for global power and interstellar flight

the wiki says that
>Pandoran unobtanium beats all current Earth superconductors in terms of efficiency and stability by more than a thousand times over. It remained superconducting up until its melting point (1,516° C, 2,761° F) and even when surrounded by a magnetic field of one billion gausses (100,000 teslas).
but I don't know what the fuck a superconductor is
>>
>>177171243
Maybe because there’s no element or known substance that would be worth the cost of travelling to another star to ship back to earth.
>>
>>177171518
used for making computer chip?
>>
>>177171354
they set up all of that before discovering unobtanium

Can it really be called Unobtainium if I've obtained it?
>>
>>177171679
There's only one i. Unobtanium
>>
>>177171395
How do they get it back to earth?
>>
>>177171395
So basically what would you do with $40,000,000 then.
I'd buy a kilo of unobtanium of course
>>
>>177171119
Have an unobtainiwank of course.
>>
>>177171119

So if it's floating how do we know how much does it weigh?

How you do define a kilo of unobtanium?
>>
>>177171844
you could ship it back on an unmanned craft at a much higher speed. it says it has a market value of 40 million per kilo which seems strange to me considering
>But that doesn't mean folks on Pandora get to phone home all the time. The cost of sending a message is "approximately $7,500 per bit."
so a kilo of unobtanium costs as much as sending an atari game back home. what???
>>
>>177171119
Real term
>>
>>177171929
actually I had the math wrong because I was doing bytes. 1 kilo of unobtanium costs the same as sending a 660 byte message back to earth
>>
>>177171881
weight and mass are different things
>>
>>177171881
It only floats around certain electric currents. Like here, he has to put it on that powered pad for it to work

I actually really like that the metal shaped the terrain and causes unusual formations
>>
>>177171987
it is a room temperature superconductor. you don't need a powered pad, just a magnetic field. https://youtu.be/X5EoUD-BIss?t=215 explanation is earlier in the video.

I'm not really following the Avatar "lore" but let me guess...

The navi were once a highly advanced space-faring race and all the ore and the unique flora and fauna of their planet is a remnant of their high-tech achievements.
They bioengineered themselves to go back to monke, but in a way where they can still "network" and "interface" with some planetary system and through the movies they'll explore ancient ruins where it's going to become obvious their precursors were militant and imperialistic but they chose to reduce themselves to a more pure existence and in the end they'll teach that to the humans, who'll do the same...

>>177172107
its more about how when a technological singularity comes into existence, bandwidth becomes its primary limiting factor, so its going to want to grow and expand its capabilities, but it hits a point where a part of it being subject to a delay of a few seconds when communicating with another, would render that part permanently obsolete. since advancing under this situation isn't sustainable, after the singularity peaks, it has no choice but to remain planetbound.
>>
>>177171119
Sell it for an avatar and ticket to pandora. Then I would get some blue pussy
>>
>>177172033
very neat, can't wait until there's a real room temp superconductor
>>
>>177171395
so is it an element or what? what is its atomic number?
>>
>>177172230
>>177172107
this is way too much cringe lore effort they should put into actually making more cute navies
>>
>>177172694
fun fact, the navi have no word for wolf but they do have a word for internet
>>
>>177171652
Best Dune ripoff ever made.
