pret de particulier a particuliers serieux It’s not “zero gravity”, it’s free fall.

how to write a good opening message online dating Human ships have an artificial gravity system. It’s called centrifugal force. If it ain’t rotating, it’s floating. It takes a ring 1.6km in diameter to provide 1 G at 1 RPM.

dating spanische frauen In free fall, a body in motion tends to stay in motion until discovered by your protagonist.

Thrusting a moving spaceship is a very complicated thing needing multiple thrusters and a lot of luck (see Apollo 13) or a good computer (see Apollo 13 while they still had theirs turned on).

matchmaking adventures youtube Velocity is a speed and a direction. Delta v is important. See section on free fall maneuvering. See section on banking. See section on banking again.

address On the assumption that Einstein was right, we do not travel faster than light in this book. We cheat, instead, and cut out the boring bit in the middle. Sci-fi is so handy for cutting out the boring bits in the middle.

exemple de prГ©sentation pour site de rencontre Because we want to have people in space for reasonable amounts of time, the system used is the Rift Gates. Normal unenhanced people do not like staying inside the Rifts very long. Because of a fundamental lack of understanding of rift gates, they are not directional for anyone (other than Starwolves, see their notes). You enter one, come out the other, instantly. Then trundle along at relativistic speeds (less than .1 c) until you reach the next one that is going your way. Sort of like hitchhiking, without the need for a very long thumb. Normal unenhanced people do not take well to travel greater than .1c.

sims 3 rencontre en ligne Deep Space weapons consist primarily of particle beam weapons, which strip a neutron or an electron off of an atom, accelerate it, then throw it very fast at something to kill. They have range limitations, just as lasers do. Projectile weapons had better have their own drive system, or else they’re never going to get anywhere useful.
