I am becoming amused that most of the future techs are about machines and mostly war machines at that. Just seems a bit one sided is all.
Well, i personally havent added the biological spaceship concept stuff yet.
There is alot of genetically engineered space organisms that are fused to oxygen generators that live in space.
-Asteroid Queen (A really large insect that calls asteroids home.
- Giant Astropus
In Nano era
theres gonna be cyber dragons (we can use FF@ dragons..these dragons have genetically biological skin)
and chimeras nad lots of mythical creatures made by science.some are arndoid creatures with real skin..(think Terminator).
But they are still all to do with warfare. I don't know, there is more to explore than just how to kill people. One of the "simple" modifications to humans to adapt them to space (suggested by Lois McMaster Bjould with her Quaddies) was to replace legs with arms.
Did you real All Tomorrows yet?
Ive read until Mars, so far really interesting..I wonder if there is a Qu in our galaxy. More detailed thoughts when im done reading it..
A Qu-like alien race is what I wanted to have for the end game. But more much mysterious and ambiguous on what their appearance is.
I have concluded you are a Grinch Mr. Dancing Hoskuld. Must be because your upside down.
Heheh, DancingHoskuld: "Yes, boring!" MrAzure: "Yes, very interesting..."
I'm going to have to read it also. asap.
I myself couldn't get into it. I lost interest after the first paragraph, forced myself to skim read it then lost interest again after the first few pages of skimming... I really just like to look at theories that are around today and add theories of my own. Not surprisingly I come up with unique techs that aren't copies and yall say 'yea that sounds really plausible for an actual future tech'. So I'll just stick with my own head tyvm.
Removed, wrong thread.
At least the editor was doing his job. Many books today are in need of a working editor.
Whats the difference between the Kupier Belt and Ort Cloud?
Also, i just learned these are all considered "planetoids" along with Pluto, and are in our solar system.
The Kuiper belt has been proven to exist and it is considerably closer than the Oort belt (which is supposed to be nearly a light year from the sun).
A major difference is that the Kuiper belt consists of objects largerly in the same orbital plane as the planets (i.e. - it's basically a disc), whereas the Oort cloud is a (hypothesised still I think) spherical cloud.
The Kuiper Belt: think of it as a second asteroid belt, except with comets/icy/frozen objects instead of stony/iron like the asteroids. It's beyond Neptune, and its existence (proven since the 90s) is pretty much the main reason why Pluto got downgraded. Most short-period (orbit < 200 years) comets come from here. Although, it's considerably sparser and larger than the Mars-Jupiter asteroid belt.
The Oort Cloud: Is still hypothesized, yes - at these distances, it's hard to see anything that doesn't emit its own light. It's MUCH MUCH bigger and sparser than the Kuiper belt, and stretches out to pretty much a light year (50K AU) from the Sun. not much is really known about this region beyond that.
But yeah, what the above two people said.
Separate names with a comma.
