Soviet Gigantomania was ... interesting. I wonder how concentrated production would have become if Khrushchev did not introduce modest reforms for regionalism. Arming a light utility is a just about workable solution if you can't get hold of anything better but pretty much everyone with a reasonable...

Or you could just use your FTL technology to send astronomical data to the past.


If FTL is measured as the speed in which one can send the smallest indivisible unit of information over a distance faster than light can travel, than FTL is more possible than otherwise.

Hmm. Air-Land-Sea-Space-Society Battle? Did I miss anything?

I think a single city is too small to be considered as battlespace, and a snide quip that the battle is lost before it begins fails to consider alternatives if the opponents seeks to win.

It doesn't look very sloppy handwriting resistant.

Do you intend to write only on wax or clay tablets in large print?

How large is your alphabet? With maybe a number symbol, you could reuse your alphabet for numbers.

You reinvented metal foam, but with thinner structures. A metal foam is a cellular structure consisting of a solid metal (frequently aluminium) with gas-filled pores comprising a large portion of the volume. The pores can be sealed (closed-cell foam) or interconnected (open-cell foam). The defining ...

Random idea. Soft launched torpedoes that sit in the water doing nothing for maximum silent launching. Have them loiter around for a while than acquire targets and fire up their engines when the sub is safely gone. Probably idiotic in real life but you do have to admit the idea would be cool. Self-...

The number of mounted weapons systems is proportional to the unsubmerged surface area of the ship. But broadside torpedo tubes, missile spam, and underwater battles! Come on. It will be so cool! Hmm. Rotate Typhoon-class submarine 90 degrees for maximum broadside with special designed torpedoes?

I think in a post-apocalyptic climate change world, you need ships that can regularly survive hypercane conditions or maybe monster waves. This would require a wide flat ship with very high levels of watertightness and buoyancy. Surviving lesser sea states would simplify design and allow for a more ...

If we live in five dimensions, the trick is to design an aircraft to exist in five spatial dimensions, outdoing all three dimension aircraft.

But seriously, what is with all the talk about life and buoyancy and thrust?
