In this article, I let you know a little how a trip to Mars could look like. See this picture which is a moon-base on the moon Phobos that orbits Mars where a tracked centrifuge module exists that spins and creates artificial gravity (sideways) for the astronauts. There is many rockets for the habitat, gravity centrifuge and rocket home as well as sat uplinks and dishes for the communications back to earth.
Just a bit out of my imagination trunk...0 comments
Because I'm building a stand-up station for my work I needed another monitor. I got it today, a 27" monitor. It's an ACER the same as my Netbook. I also got a new office chair because the old one was uncleanable after the fire.0 comments
This may just be the last post of 2012 and the first post of 2013 worldwide. Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by my blog. When I'm fully moved in to my new apartment and everything is connected I'll have a backlog of releasing to do for wildcarddnsd and perhaps natally, and fire irc (these are programs I develop).0 comments
I just signed up for a love-matchmaker again. It's the same story, you gotta pay to read messages from others, so it's really worthless. I'd pay but the contract automatically renews itself unless I FAX them to stop doing so. I hate doing that. I want to pay for a limited amount of time to unlock all features and not have to worry that something is eating on my savings after. Anyone know any good matchmakers? That do what I want?0 comments
China reportedly has a train that covers 2300 kilometers in 8 hours between Beijing and Guangzhou. I'm sort of jealous of that. I wish europe would have similar efforts. For starters between Helsinki and Frankfurt (through the not yet built Helsinki-Tallin(?) tunnel) with a stop in Warsaw, Poland. That would rock and has a distance of around 1800 kilometers. If we can put ICE trains to use they could skoot through the east-baltic regions like darts.
Of course going down Frankfurt to Gibraltar would be cool too. However I'm sure the Polish, Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians would probably be more willing to have an ICE train roll through their countries than France having anything other than a TGV roll through theirs.0 comments
Merry Christmas, the 7 angels sing! Dr. Nic came on the sixth, and brought presents with him! Or something like that... Merry Christmas!0 comments
When I was a boy of around 12 years old, I would draw space ships. One favourite of mine was redrawing the run-about of STNG. This is roughly what it looked like as I drew it.
Notice it had some sort of propulsion that glows, at the back and at the bottom of the ship. Yes it may be an array of ion propulsion who knows..it had a nearly endless supply of energy to transport people between stars in sub-lightspeed speeds. Perhaps at an 8th of a lightyear-year.0 comments
I'd say no. Take a look what xephem showed, edited with gimp.
The december solstice is in three days. Interesting I find that wikipedia calls this also the "southern solstice". Have fun with this info. What does it really say? It means that at high noon on the 21st the sun is at its lowest point in the sky (due to the earths tilt). It also means the shortest day of the year, but it also means that going forward after this days will increase in length again (at least until the next June solstice). If the 21st is the end of the world will have to be seen, but I personally have my doubts. :-).0 comments
After deciding to expire goldflipper.net, I registered amdeutschhof.de as that is the street I'm living on in a part of Schweinfurt called Deutschhof. I intend to give neighbours an email redirect service with this, although I'm unsure how popular it would be.0 comments
