  1. Think ideally your output temperature should vary based on heating load. If return temperature isn't low enough you won't be able to steal back the latent heat locked away. Does take the correct setup to really see the benefits.
  2. Literally, as ice will start forming lol. The lower the inlet temperature, the more heat can be recovered via phase change.
  3. Depends on to what extent it is used and how the population is distributed. Cloning offers a route to rapid population growth/recovery.
  4. They had a couple of different systems they turned to. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_numerals#Large_numbers
  5. At least with a Sub I'd say it's fairly sluggish about accelerating. You can't demand too much from your steam or reactor in too short a time.
  6. To some extent everything can be fooled by optical illusions, though one could make the case that adequate testing is needed to ensure a reasonable level of performance. Not sure who or what should determine that level though.
  7. The atmosphere under the geomagnetic poles isn't as protected as the rest. CFC's were still ultimately causing the problem though.
  8. Think makes more sense to evaluate based on the time and the resources each method takes. You don't want to spend forever on something the computer can brute-force for you. Password cracking for example.
  9. I think it is supposed to count as it is itself using the sunlight to remain stationary. Had a thought that you could shield the sun, bringing the heliosphere in and perhaps truly sail via the passing interstellar medium. I've never seen analysis for that one though.
  10. People, on average, earn more where it costs more to live. This doesn't necessarily mean they're any more industrious though. In reality I think this would just reduce the available supply, rather than cut into the Airbnb or real-estate speculation culture.
  11. Probably is radioactive dust on/in the surface ice but underground water should be okay. I'm thinking that as it is probably saltwater, we'll remove any contaminants at the same time as we are desalinating.
  12. Possibly supposed to show pressure equalizing. A pressure exchanger is a real thing although that doesn't seem a very good example.
  13. They or I would then reincarnate. Is suffering not part of existence until reaching Nirvana? Not sure about Hinduism, but there are realms in Buddhism that might be said to be what the Christian faith considers as Heaven and Hell. Perhaps Christianity is simply mistaken about their nature. Who can say?
  14. All my pets are expected to work defending the home from those reincarnated as vermin and must come running when called, no exceptions.
  15. Be via gravity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_engine#Class_A_(Shkadov_thruster) The alternative Caplan thruster, would cost some of your hydrogen and mass, but you would be headed to 'fill-up' and need to lose some byproducts anyways(if the size is to be maintained).
  16. Yeah this would definitely be more K2 Civilization type stuff. I'd dread to see the math you would have to do to figure out how to do it safely, not to mention when your civilization finally arrived somewhere.
  17. For a Stellar engine, you would use a portion of a star's own energy to do so. Basic ideas are to either use the mother of all solar sails or deliberately caused mass ejections. Would be slow though which might still pose a problem.
  18. Could in theory move it elsewhere and supply it with gas giants and material from other stars. Personally I suspect it'll become more a matter of how economic man-made Fusion reactors end up being though.
  19. In theory. There is the Star Lifting concept along these lines. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_lifting Isaac Arthur did a good video on it.
  20. Kept meaning to update this... After heating a peice up with standard lighter it shattered upon attempting to get it to flex.
  21. Yes, something like wordpress though naturally you should search for a website builder or template that has what you are looking for. By the last sentence I mean that you can replicate how a site looks in the browser. What matters is that the code is mostly your own work or code you've obtained legitimately. Good that you're not planning to copy pictures. The main problem with simply copying code is that it may not behave the same. Better to only copy what you need and then know for certain how your website will behave.
  22. Strictly speaking, yes. It is copyrighted but pretty rare a case is made over reuse. What normally gets people into trouble/caught is hotlinking(linking to someone else's files) and stealing images, however. I'd recommend using one of the free website builder(or similar tools) that exist instead if you can. It is perfectly legal to replicate the appearance of a site you're interested in.
  23. That looks off but if you choose something like 6 to base 2 Division Quotient Remainder 6/2 3 0 3/2 1 1 1/2 0 1 Reassembling the remainders from bottom to top, you get 1 1 0 so One-One-Zero in base-2 or 1102 = 610 Bases come into play with logarithms in calculus. ie. log base-b, with the typical base you'll use being an unspoken 10. log10(100) = 2 Indeed. I still wonder if we'll ever switch from predominantly using base-10 again. Interesting to consider.
  24. 5 in base ten. Always assume base ten until told otherwise or if it is obvious in context(dealing with base-16 hexadecimal codes with letters as numerals for example). This is only alongside numbers, but you would normally use subscript to identify the base being used(if it needs to be made obvious). The number indicating the base, should itself be in base ten to avoid confusion. ie. 5 in base ten = 510 An old joke goes that there are 10 kinds of people in this world, those that understand binary and those that don't. The joke being that 'one-zero' in binary or 102, actually means just two in base ten. You already understand counting in different bases, you just have to adjust your thought process slightly to see that. If I say 90 minutes from 3 AM, your brain will automatically add the two correctly and give you the correct time, without you even noticing it.
