Re: We lost so many members :(

I have missed Talk-Polywell and still check in often. I mostly lurked and enjoyed the wonderful discussions and hope to do so for many years to come.

Re: SpaceX News

The Talk-Pollywell forum is very quiet these days.. Even space X completing it's 150 meter hover test of the Raptor engine didn't get a blip.. Thoroughly enjoyed this explanation of the Full flow, closed cycle engine used for the Raptor by Everyday Astronaut https://everydayastronaut.com/raptor-engi...

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

Those needle nose pliers look like they could be spring bound.. That could put them in the automatic, semi-automatic variety.

No one in society should be allowed to have such implements.

They are paying/sponsoring their own news articles about themselves.

Re: Go Navy!

Imagine a Navy equipped with this tech if it comes to fruition.

A Gerald R.Ford carrier with its 700MW power plant and minimal drag or submarines with minimal drag.

It would definitely require a strategy rethink.

Re: SpaceX News

The barge was rocking and rolling enough in the tropical cyclone that it had trouble keeping it's satellite link alive.. and they still stuck the landing. Nice work! No additional points for style? ;-)

Science News. Protein can switch on electrical conductivity.

Prof. Stuart Lindsay from Arizona State University has been investigating mechanisms that allow proteins to conduct electrical currents like a switch. It can be turned on or off.

Re: SpaceX News

I believe they are attempting two launches in the one week. Now that is an impressive schedule!
I would have been very impressive if it was another 10 Iridium’s, however I believe the next launch is a single satellite. Re-used first stage though!! :D
