THIS ARCHIVE IS NO LONGER CLASSIFIED AS AN EXSURGENT INFECTION RISK [hr]
root@Mesh Archive: Reverse Engineering QuestionsI've put this Archive in with the Philosophy Archive, using the same horrendously expensive QE messaging system. Up-rates for my efforts are appreciated. Come here when you need someone to explain the math behind some of the more puzzling accomplishments of h-corp engineers. We, the @-rep hackers, will try and work out what the physics would have to be to accomplish some of these toys. Surya: What distance from Sol do these things have to orbit such that the solar energy collected is enough to power the magnetic fields needed to avoid death by radiation? At this distance, how much energy has to be diverted to move against the Solar Wind to keep orbit distance? Given the gravity well of Sol, can the Surya ever come back from their orbit?
