So imagine you have two cannons firing their cannon balls away from each other, and their muzzle velocity is the speed of light.

You'd think the relative speed of one cannon ball to the other would be 2x the speed of light, right?

Nope. The equation for relative speed between two objects looks like this:

>v1+2=v1+v2/(1+v1v2/c^2)

Where v1 and v2 are the speeds of the two cannon balls and c is the speed of light.

So as the velocity of the cannon balls approaches the speed of light, their own speed doesn't matter and the limit of light speed is dominant. Relative speed of 2x speed of light is thus impossible.

Or in other words: wat.


You guys got some other relativistic mind-blowers?

Then why hadn't anyone figured it out until Einstein came along? The Theory of Relativity was one of the guiding influences on the conceptual development of social and cultural relativity, which you are (humorously) referencing. Don't pretend that you would have invented the concepts of perspective and subjectivity, which took millennia for humanity to uncover, all on your own.

Multiple scientists, most notably Poincaré and Lorentz, worked in the last decades of the 19th century on the mathematical framework that would eventually be used in the theory of Special Relativity. Before Einstein, everyone just assumed that both the aether and a real "universal time" existed, and suggesting they didn't was a counterintuitive, radical development. Einstein also showed how the previously derived mathematics followed from his simple axioms.

If I understand the theory correctly, the speed of light is what it is because that's the constant "speed limit" of the universe. Light itself can travel slower if it's in a medium where it can interact with matter, which is why you get refraction in water for example, but once in a vacuum it travels as fast as it can.

To explain a bit further: Light is mass-less, and from this we can 'assume' that its velocity in a vacuum should be infinite. This of course is impossible, so its speed is exactly the maximum speed possible. The reason why this limit exists and why it's a constant and not relative itself is because it's deeply tied into the general laws of physics, which we assume at least are universal everywhere.

It was late august and the skies were perfect out in the cornfields of Nebraska,
It was the darkest I've ever seen, I couldn't see my hand in front of me, let alone the stalks.

After about half an hour of stumbling through the field trying to find my spot, (a clearing that my friend used to grow weed) I finally stumbled upon a small trail that led to the clearing.

In the clearing there was a trailer, a lawnchair, a cooler and a telescope. I turned on my lantern and went into the trailer. There were stalks of weed hanging on clotheslines as well as a few pills scattered on a table with a note that said "help yourself", with a winky face alongside a condom.

I thought it was a prank, but I thought I might as well so I took the pills all at once and shaved off a nug branch of uncured weed and smoked it the best I could. Anyway I got out my telescope and used my night-sky app on my phone to find the planets (yeah I know, I'm lazy).

As I was focusing in on Saturn I noticed my vision started to blur a bit. I thought at first the lense was just out of focus but I soon found that something was happening. I continued my search anyway, the best I could until I could no longer keep up.

I decided to just chill on a tarp and watch the stars instead, see If I could make out the ISS and other satellites. I started thinking about how those stars are actually clusters of galaxies that are probably gone, it made me sad but then I felt something.

My dick was hard as a rock., On top of that the stars wouldn't stay still. It was bothering the fuck out of me until it didn't. I started to see my own constellations, they turned into titties and even full on line-porn.

Black holes don't suck. They have the same gravitational attraction as anything with the same mass. They just pack that mass in a small enough volume that internal gravity overcomes all the other forces.

You're reaching into subject matter that I think you probably need more reference knowledge for to be able to integrate fully. Probably best to just not worry about such things in that case.
But, the idea that there could be microscopic black holes capable of passing through the earth is just from one study by one physicist, as a way to explain something that probably has a much simpler explanation i.e. the LHC doesn't generate micro black holes simply because the LHC isn't capable of generating micro black holes . The accepted explanation concerning black holes in the standard model is that they continually lose mass due to Hawking radiation, and thus eventually evaporate completely, so by most physicists estimation, long lived subatomic scale black holes don't exist.

If there were a black hole in the center of the earth, then the center of the earth would fall into its event horizon, which would subsequently expand. In short order, the entire earth would be within the black hole. Anything that comes into physical contact with the event horizon becomes a part of the black hole, and since the center of the earth is completely pressurized with no vacuous space, it would consume the earth more or less instantaneously from our perspective, from the inside out.

The amount of the mass that subatomic particles, that could pass through such an object that weren't already part of the earth's mass -- like neutrinos burrowing through from the sun, would contribute to the total mass of an earth-consuming black hole would be vanishingly negligible, more or less equivalent to the number of neutrinos that pass through the earth during the time it took the black hole to consume it, (which would again, would on the order of seconds, perhaps minutes) pico grams of substance compared to the earth's 5x10^24 Kgs.

I don't think we'll be capable of making it to Alpha Centauri any time soon. Possibly not at all. Unless we can figure out a warp drive or something, we'd have to be going in generational ships.
That may be possible in a few hundred years (assuming we do) after we've colonized our system, pulled tons and tons of resources out of the asteroid belt and have plenty of manpower and resources to spare.
Assuming that everything goes smoothly, and we're able to settle the solar system, it's definitely possible. If we are able to efficiently mine asteroids and other planets, and build sustainable colonies, we should have abundant resources to make long voyages.
In The Expanse series there is a group of Mormons that pool up resources to take a massive generational ship to some nearby star system. I could see something like that happening, whether it's a religion that finds the will to do it, or a government project, or even just a private project.
So it's definitely possible, it's just that we've got to get well settled in our own solar system first. Really, it's fairly easy to conceive, but we'd have to pass many political, scientific, social and economical road bumps to get to the point of being able to.

Just an interesting consequence of relativity: As you approach the speed of light, time slows down. While the trip might take decades or centuries from our perspective, it can take significantly less from the perspective of the travelers. With an efficient enough vessel, traveling to Alpha Centauri can theoretically be done without generation-ships.

Even without time dilation, Alpha Centauri isn't that far.
If we could accelerate at 1g halfway, then decelerate at 1g the other half, it would only take 6 years without time dilation (3.5 years with dilation).
That kind of acceleration is a tall order though.
At only one tenth of a g, it's still only about 13.6 years to an outside observer.

Another thread made me start thinking about this. The Fermi Paradox states (thanks, Wikipedia):

>The Sun is a young star. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older;
>Some of these stars probably have Earth-like planets which, if the Earth is typical, may develop intelligent life;
>Presumably, some of these civilizations will develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now, such as that used in the proposed 100 Year Starship;
>At any practical pace of interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.

If that's the case, why haven't we been colonized already, or at least seen evidence of intelligent life somewhere in our galaxy?

My take: either A) Life takes a long time to develop, and somehow, improbably, we're the first planet to develop an intelligent civilization in our galaxy, or at least one of the first. We don't see anyone else because there isn't anyone else to see... yet, or we're all still too far apart.

Or b) Given the size and composition constraints of a planet able to foster and sustain life (as far as we know, "habitable zone," big enough to have an atmosphere, small enough to still be rocky, etc.) and continue long enough for said life to begin to explore the galaxy, the home planet simply runs out of resources before meaningful headway can be made. I think this is more of a slow-death kind of thing where maybe we get to do some exploration within the solar system and maybe a bit beyond for a while, but overpopulation, war, disease, famine, and whatever else causes us to realign our priorities from space exploration to merely sustaining life on our own planet. A civilization that had the foresight to know something like that was happening could theoretically, if they had the goal of galactic expansion from the start, avoid this situation, but the problem is that NO civilization has that kind of 10,000 year plan from the get-go, and they all sputter out right before they could have pulled it off. There's not a textbook on "how to succeed as a species" that gets handed out to a life form when it develops self-awareness,…

The problem is that we, as humans, seem to have a hangup with the cost-benefit of a multi-year (or multi-decade) space journey. If it takes most of/more than a human lifetime to go somewhere, we'll have a sorta-hard time finding volunteers, but a really, really hard time funding it. The payoff is too far away and too abstract for anyone to really throw the necessary money at it. We'd need another, even more forward-thinking, Elon Musk.

Oh we would not have a shortage of volunteers. History shows we got something of a pioneer spirit. Just look at how easy that Dutch Mars colonization/reality show programme got willing people.

I think most of all it chalks down to the reality of our current era: America landed men on the moon during a mission way before its time; yet they did it several times. Now the on-board computer of the Apollo missions was state of the art back then, like the rest of the mission, yet today we have more computing power in our pockets. Not to mention new materials, techniques and logistics which really brings down the cost quite a lot. Our real hang-up is the lack of competition. There's no big red baddie to beat today. Quite a lot of space exploration today are done through cooperation as well.

In other words there's little prestige in it, so we're left to the whims of benefactors like Elon Musk or simply watching developing countries like China and India close the head start of the European powers. This is rather comparable to the age of colonization, where initial colonies would only turn a profit at least a generation down the line; though nations still kept on colonizing because of the whole competitive game between empires.

i understand the weight involved but their are multiple ways to accomplish this

(also i may be missing information on certain things)

with the miscellaneous equipment that is obsolete or ... take an electromagnet to swoop the pieces and clean the atmosphere.. *(my mind was on this)

secondly i think that while it may be applicable to take a large hook and anchor to something to even make some kind of "elevator" - to utilize this to even lift some military equipment - prefabricated buildings... almost anything

a tank is something that came to mind... a submarine would almost work also.. in zero gravity

plus with that.. it comes to understand the problems with entanglement... but also to cheaply move things from station to station on a rope ... much information should be held... but again i don't know who reads these forums

Actually firearms and cannons would work in space as they already contain all the oxidizer necessary to function. Gunpowder in all forms is a propellant with fuel and oxidizer already in supply. Firearms, cannons, turrets etc are all pressure sealed during firing which means there wouldn't be air in them anyways here on Earth.

HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

So apparently after decades of people trying to debunk it and call it pseudoscience, NASA has confirmed the Shawyer EM Drive actually works, producing thrust via microwaves using no propellant, apparently violating the principle of equal and opposite reaction:
http://www.sciencealert.com/it-s-official-nasa-s-peer-reviewed-em-drive-paper-has-finally-been-published

The authors suggest that perhaps the long-dead pilot-wave/Bohmian interpretation of Quantum Mechanics is now a contender again thanks to this new evidence. The microwaves 'push off' of the quantum vacuum, preserving Newton. But if pilot-wave is the true QM, that means not only that alternate realities exist, but that we see them as real effects in our world! (i.e. in the generation of interference patterns in the double-slit experiment. But surely this is but the most minor influence this generates, and probably only the easiest to notice, since in Bohmian mechanics the wave function that governs any given particle system spans the entire universe.)

NASA's totally unoptimized EM drive could get us to Mars in a tithe of the time of even Musk's proposal, with a ship a fraction of the mass ('cause no propellant.) It's bottle popping time /sagan/!

No, that would be the Xi'an team lead by Juan Yang who actually conducted experiments and published their research. And no, Chen Yue's team has not successfully tested the EM drive in space. Right now his only verifiable success is getting a couple of patents approved (which isn't a very radical development, as cold fusion was patented both in the US and Europe). There's also a Chinese state media press release about building a test device that could in the future be tested in space. Let's talk more about how successful or not the tests were if and when the results of the alleged experiment are published.

Feel free to read the press release yourself. There's been a lot of dodgy science journalism and wild claims in the blogosphere about this lately.

And of course every nation would put it on their satellites if it works - this shit would revolutionize space propulsion, provide free energy to Mankind, and allow us to conquer the stars. But all extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Right now the "best" evidence for the EM drive is shit like this >>56712

Damn, all I wanted was unlimited energy and mankind to conquer the universe. This whole thing sounded so star trek at first, but now all my hopes are getting fucking dashed. I just wanted to travel the universe, is that so bad?

Anyone here trying to become an astronaut? I've always wondered what working in space would be like and how bright the stars would shine. Anyone else/

These days, to be an astronaut, you have to be a fucking fighter pilot with a PhD in astrophysics or something. The reqs are insane.
