  1. Reply Yes, it is a shame to see the shuttle program end. I've seen a couple of the launches and it was a marvel of technology and engineering. Hopefully, the retirement will give NASA some time to update its technology. I wonder what will be the next space shuttle. I think they called it the x-10 0r something. It looks like a minianture shuttle.
  2. Reply I've got a question for you too. I am thinking of buying a scope. Which ones do you recommend? I've got one already but its not great. Its a tasco novice. Its name suits its quality.
  3. Reply Im sorry if Rayman and others are ruining your forum and I agree but I post relavent theories under the section "scientific theories concepts and debates". I thought that section was for theories.
  4. Reply Yeah the forum has been dead this last week. I've been on every day to see if there is anything new but there's not. I've been the only one posting. It's quite unusual that I haven't gotten any replies either to my posts. I mean come on, it was titled Expansion and even Ibiar didn't reply. I wonder what's goin' on around here. A full clean out might do the trick.

    Reply Actually, to improve your idea even further, I would first suggest eliminating any structure holding the ship to the hub. Could you imagine swinging a shuttle around a hub at 99.9% the speed of light. Not even carbon nano-tubes, the strongest material on Earth could survive such strain. I would replace that with supercooled electromagnets. This way, nothing would be strained by the ships force. Now, to counteract the centrifugal force that comes from the ship that would most certainly kill the astronauts, I would make the inside of the ship turn in the opposite direction counteracting the g force.
