Re: Treating tubing

some of the 8 foot custom rockets can go 1.5km high, you can buy kits and parts easy with a google search and download simulators http://www.thrustcurve.org/simulators.shtml

and make orbital rockets http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-orbital-rocket/

Re: Treating tubing

it would be easier to look at internal designs of hobby rockets then buy some brackets from model then look at a better eay

Re: Pedalling a bike on the Nurburgring??

sata 3 takes 20 mins to copy 15gb from drive to drive, a dual layer blu ray are 50gb

most people have a SSD for windows only, and 6 other spin HDD`s for storage and games with 30mb textures if not using dds being read into ram without 30 mins level loading time

Re: Pedalling a bike on the Nurburgring??

it would come in handy for storage at home, if you copy your blu rays from drive to drive, everyone boots windows up on SSD`s so you wont lower the 30 second boot

whats the difference from just having a pcie sata expansion card besides the speed

everything is the same focus if you have 20/20 vision, you just have to look at the object you want to actually look at

you already can....

you make a custom shaped flexible LED screen http://www.avledscreen.com/qydtInfo.asp?Articleid=720

you get a single lens pair of sports glasses with padding so all you can see if the lens for road racing on bikes etc/screen

http://www.simcooutdoors.com/resources/10397-BIG.JPG

you can carmack to make the pixel render filter and fov to match the curved screen and shape which will stop people having motion sickness

the nose will just be black on the rendered image and not visible on screen because there are no pixels for it to be shown

Re: To Serve Man

most sci-fi is based on aliens being here for 1000s of years, man started to make boats and navigated the world, so they left us to it, and they put on lame little shows in the sky when nuclear tests happen or war breaks out

i`ve already said they will pull up and do nothing for 24 hours when the next shuttle has electro magnet pulse propulsion and the human race can blip around as they like, and take off ground to orbit with the same propulsion system because it need no air for combustion

Brits to vote: Which pressing scientific challenge should get £10m thrown at it?

Re: Nope

so if you ignore the basic`s of a turbine perpetual generator of not lasting a million years which by then you would of had to replace the motor and coil anyway, you could refurbish your cargo ships and cruise liners in a year, and save trillion tons of co2 and barrels of oil a year, and the cost of refurbishment would nodoubt be saved in a few years from not having to buy combustion fuels

Re: Nope

+ if you have all the scientists who know everything about electric, you would end up with something as efficient as fusion, nothing lasts forever, fusion will run out of hydrogren and need a new star when the star used super novas

except with a turbine generator, you just flick a switch and turn it off and back on for it to be perpetual for another 40 years or so

300,000 km per second is the speed of electric, so a nanosecond for 12 feet loop of cable if you still have a axle etc etc etc

Re: Nope

yup it does, you start the motor spinning with external power, the dynamo turns, it generates power, a small bit of power loops back to the motor, you remove the external startup power source

you can spout all the same bollox all you want, for every mm the dynamo turns and generates its power, the power is back to powering the motor within a nano second, while excess power goes off to power the main circuit grid

a single wind farm turbine generates 6MW at 20 RPM, a cargo ship would need 12 in the engine room to compete with some nuclear reactor war ships, minus all the insulation and liquid fuel

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_naval_reactors

you could chuck a turbine generator together without looking at all the math and have enough power to go around the world 100,000 times

Re: Nope

you start off with a small external power source to send to the motor

once the motor has reached the dynamo`s minimum generating RPM, the loop becomes perpetual as the RPM increases to the dynamo`s maximum generating RPM which is usually 20 RPM

turn for turn from the dynamo and motors spin ratio are matched, and you have the forces of the torque needed to spin the dynamo and made a motor with all the right specs, and then run the generator in a vacuum so you can have less power waste looping back to the motor, you could probably make the generator 98^% efficient with all the scientists and metals for a industrial commericial generator to be sold on the open market

a 300 watt charger wind turbine can be powered by a RC car motor which can be started up with any AA battery

if you have the spec`s for the turbines dynamo and the correct motor, you dont need a metre long axle from the motor to the dynamo, so the actual loop for the electric from dynamo generation to the motor is minimal

then your have all of the lightweight sci-tech metals to make the dynamo out of

no, make your own with the cruddy non direct drive charger dynamo and the 150rpm 2kg of torque RC car motor, or the 300 rpm motor

make a real generator with a full modern direct drive turbine dynamo, run it in a vacuum cylider

electric motors do not have shaft power, the input watts is all thats needed to do what the electro magnets have been configured to do

the loop is just a standard domestic turbine kit you will have in the loft if you have a turbine installed or buy a full kit

modern turbines are not chargers or crap dynamo`s like your altinator in your car that need massive torque to make them turn and generate power

nobody gets that basic stuff before chatting bollox and not understanding how it works

give me £2000 and i`ll make a perpetual generator, giving you clean water, infinate green power, the ability to use heat rods in jet engines instead of combustion fuels, and power for a 100kw electro magnetic pulse propulsion drive system for the next space shuttle so you can blip around out whole solar system in a year, 6Mw green power for ocean going cargo ships instead of combustion generators
