"Clock Time

Clock time (CT) is the period of the clock that synchronizes the circuits in a processor. It is the reciprocal of the clock frequency.

For example, a 1 GHz processor has a cycle time of 1.0 ns and a 4 GHz processor has a cycle time of 0.25 ns. "

https://www.d.umn.edu/~gshute/arch/performance-equation.xhtml

the clock time also depends on how many transistors the CPU has and the finfet size, and then normal circuit boards add extra nano seconds as does copper wires, as does the operating system being used, put it all together and you have windows that can't cope with USB ports with a polling rate faster then 1000mhz/1ms latency

i can't remember how long plasma lives for, but it has a real short lifetime, using a normal CPU would make a fusion reactor, maybe 3x less efficient, then using as much fibre as possible and a quantum computer when trying to control a whole chamber of plasma

it should'nt take too long, the uk's reactor is only a few months old and can hook up a quantum computer to control the magnet's and the amount of friction, for stable plasma for a day, you would need the sensor readings on 0 nano second, not next year every normal CPU cycle

Re: £40K ?

if your good at engineering you can easily make a hoverbike for less

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkIc2Y5gKYM

which can carry 80 KG if someone is 13 stone. so if a payload is atleast 15 KG, you can have another 20 KG for computer system, and abit of armour

css sucks, most websites are so full of it, they use 100% of the CPU and take 2 mins to actually work, and only allow 1 browser tab open

Van Allen surprise: fewer nasty particles than NASA expected

Zmodem
Bronze badge

Re: Re. Van Allen

you have a super conducting hull which is streamlined unlike bricks that are skylon, NASA shuttle, x37b, the magnetic field just acts the same as earths magnetosphere and pushes solar radiation around your craft seamlessly

real force fields have been working for 5 years to stop RPG's on tanks

the best design for a new shuttle would be something like http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/aircraft/Lockheed-F19/IMAGES/Lockheed-F-19-Stealth-Fighter-Title.jpg

good for force fields, good for reflecting small debris. rear tail can fold down in space

Re: @ Zmodem

doubt it, a maglev train uses around 8000Kw to move along at 400mph, and so does the french TGV train, so a jet fighter like BAE, would need less then 0.2MW reactor, and that would still be overkill if you want mach 4, and had a nanotube superconducting forcefield and decent radar system with super computer onboard

and fly from the ground and into space without the need for air for combustion which is'nt happening, and use a power charge to shoot off, or just fly around the world non stop for 10 years at mach 4

Re: "KNowing where to look"

they just arnt doing it right, when most are made from iron and not stealth material, asteriods would be easy to pick up with the right setup

if you design a ship right with curves, you just need 2 demi domes center top and bottom, instead of a big ball like a apache helicoptor and other planes

whats with the thumbs down, its the only way to navigate space, especially if you want to go 256 million MPH with my EM pulse propulsion thrusters, BAE Systems probably have working in fighter jets https://youtu.be/NMMA5KgIvYE?t=2m19s with 0.05 second accerlation to reach 256 million MPH with some megawatt magnets and the repelling force

its more todo with building my navigation system using topology radar to scan for space debris with omni directional pings, and generate 3d models in the 3d star map to be used in the next gen space shuttle

so they would want elite dangerous engine without the game assets, just the 160,000 real time stars from our own galaxy https://www.elitedangerous.com/ - then link up your gyroscopes, and thrust math for 1:1 real time positioning of your craft in space, with a procedurally drawn galaxy stored on DNA and just update the renderer until holograms come along

ITN is better for war coverage, soldiers are all regular people, and ITN does the news on all their channels that watch so ITN get all the insider stuff and they did'nt carry on talking for 5 mintues about nothing much when the first tower started to fall on 9/11 before they realised

"since you don't pay for my private health insurance, why should I pay for your NHS treatment?"

the NHS will still be the people who pick you up in a ambulance after you have dialed 999 in an emergency and take you to your private health care after treating you on the way

Re: Yours is really the standard pro argument

why would you want to waste £10 on nothing, when you have to pay for sky, netflix, prime, etc which you actually use and have something to actually watch

the only time the bbc is important is if a nuclear bomb drops, and then nobody will know about it because nobody watches the bbc

most people like the bbc, like 10,000 or so, don't need income tax, you can just put national insurance up £10 a month instead of everyone paying the bbc

knowing you won't die because you have a broken finger is better then having nothing at all for your money

30,000,000 * 145 = £4,350,000,000 and still absolutely nothing on the BBC to watch, get rid of the licence and the BBC and the country will be better off

thats an extra £4,350,000,000 for the NHS instead of bothering to leave the EU
