For some reason their are multiple countries highly interested in mining the moon right now and for some reason they are saying we can mine tons of stuff that they never said was on their. For some reason their is a chinese bot on the dark side of the moon and said they found a "weird substance" lol.

I've been pondering on embroaching my skilltelect at writing passable sci-fiction into a book that dwelges the line between a, let's say type 2 civilization and a type 3 civilization. I was thinking having maybe a the type 2'ers at much better than the civ 3 people at like a noteworthy skill or aspect, but the level 3'ers of course being so, so much more far advanced, what with having the entire planet system harvested, when so surely the 2'ers only control one star.
Please strike me up on this what could be an ever fading dividing line there.

have one be a swarm of habitats around a main average star
and have the other one be a swam of habitats around a main massive blackhole

have one where spacecrafts use external power such as infrastructure around a star to harvest power from the star to push spacecrafts to sublight speed to nearby stars
while have the other one building "railways" infrastructure shrinking the spacetime between stars for their spacecrafts
more details can be stressed between the spacecrafts being wide pancake-shaped designed to receive star push versus the spacecrafts being thin tower-shaped designed to fit through narrow fold space

have one be gathering resources by cracking down planets in nearby stars to move steady shipment of raw materials at sublight speed back to the home star
and have the other one be gathering resources by moving stars back to the home blackhole and then cracking down stars at home for raw materials with the remains fed to the blackhole

>The differences between the civilizations would be many orders of magnitude apart, the Type III civilization probably wouldn't even recognize the Type II civilization's sentience, they would be regarded as less than animals, or like a human would toward bacteria.

the difference between seeing stars as food and seeing stars as land

two star empires could be warring over territorial sovereignty over a few stars, but then here comes something that just eats the stars

Those aren't the questions you should be asking.

What is the professor's last name?
Who was the current POTUS at the time of this experiment?
Was the moon landing fake?
Where can I get more acid?

These are the questions you should be asking.

Scientists have found evidence for a new, ninth planet in our solar system with a mass around ten times that of Earth. Get hype.

I just bought some KNO3 (stump remover) at the hardware store today and will be making my first attempt at DIY rockets in the very near future. I'll be starting with the standard 65/35 ratio and then working in other additives to fine tune. I'm using Spectricide brand KNO3 and cheap, grocery store table sugar purchased at Walmart. I'll be doing the cooking in a motel room that my employer rents for me when I travel, because if I blow myself up it'll be way more entertaining to do it in a motel. I plan on using heavy cardboard tubes (scrap material from work) for motor casings plugged on the ends with bentonite clay (kitty litter).

I'll post pics of my work as I go along assuming my IP doesn't get highjacked and give updates on mixes and results. If you are already doing this, chime in, post pics and rock(et) on!

Did a full test of two grains today, with mixed results. The first grain - the smaller of the two - went off as expected but since my casings had no nozzles and were made of PVC, it was pretty unspectacular. The second, larger grain only burned about halfway, which was disappointing. I even tried burning the remainder from the other end and it still wouldn't completely burn, so I fucked something up. My guess is residual water left over from the manufacturing process.

On the plus side, my fuses (potassium permanganate/sulfur/silicone) worked great. They're not nearly as flexible as the YouTube video claimed they'd be, but they burn nice and slow and steady. I'd like to make some electronic matches but I don't have any potassium perchlorate and that shit is crazy expensive to buy. I'm pretty sure I can make some but that's probably a month-long process between setting up the equipment and then doing the synthesis. I'm going to try with KNO3 first and see if it works but KNO3 might be too unstable and there's a chance I could blow myself up.

As for the next batch of r-candy, I have some sorbitol now so I'm going to try dry mix again, since sorbitol's melting point is much lower than it's ignition point. Plus, if the YouTube video is to be believed, it's much easier to cast into grains. This time I'll be including a plug and nozzle to help build pressure. And finally, I'm not really impressed with sulfur as a burn rate enhancer so I'm going to get some iron oxide and try that.
