Re: Autonomous Anti Orange Clockworkist Ideas needed
Well, the car they've been testing with around the car park at the University of the West of England has a number plate with the letters "BAE". I'm wondering if they've been sponsored by Bristol's premier weapons manufacturer. And if so, what their end game is - vehicle based drones? Weapon payload delivery by car?
I've always wanted to know
Can an experienced engineer look at a chip design photo/schematic and see how it "works" or do they have to drill down to the details and follow the paths? Are there common "patterns" that repeat across chips & manufacturers or is each chip unique?
I used to understand the very basics of a single transistor but at this scale its just a pretty, meaningless picture.
So they're going for the launch of the rocket "after release" - how will they get it to point up? (presumably without the use of a fantastical flying truss(tm))
How much does a rocket that can go from 120000ft to 180000ft, can travel at mach 3.5 and carry an inflatable decelerato saucer weigh? How big a balloon will that need??
