  1. the guy in the black suit often finds difficulty in finding my name on the list, but I haven't been kicked out. Seen a lot of groups in various games make use of both TS and Discord to great effect recently and do think it'll work work for TA as an org. Again, not to replace TS but to complement all our means of communication.
  2. I know this was discussed before and just wanted to know if we ever decided to go through with this.
  3. Hello all, As requested, this topic has been moved to a more appropriate location. Feel free to continue this discussion as per usual
  4. Hi Semila, It's nice to hear from you. Electrolf/Raul has been having a break from org business recently so he might not be as active on your channels as he was previously. On the other hand, things are going well on our end. Hope things are going well for yourself and MERC Corp as well. Kind Regards, Greene ps. As always, if there you need, feel free to discuss them here or pm. Our TS channel is also open to you guys.
  5. Thanks for posting this @Sam00197. This is just a friendly update to the readme you've posted. The mod set has been updated and we'll be using Play.withsix to update the mod content. (so the above instructions are now outdated). I've included the readme text I wrote on the TS3 Arma 3 channel below. The new mod set also includes Taskforce Radio, a TS3 plugin which will greatly assist in practicing radio communications protocols which will be applied in SC. If you are unfamiliar with Taskforce Radio, I recommend contacting anyone listed on the Helping people listed on the descriptions on the Arm
  6. Not to confused with the Chris Roberts we know, this Chris Roberts is a security researcher and has spent the last 5 years on the subject of improving airline security. For a number of months, this guy was able to hack into the aircraft's in-flight entertainment system and roughly 2 months ago he allegedly managed to hijack the aircraft's thrust control system, which in turn gave him access to change the aircraft's altitude and some degree of lateral control. Details of his research are currently compressed for security reasons and is now being reviewed by authorities. http://www.bbc.com/news/
  7. As a (partial) book reader, I can say that we can no longer spoil anything for those who only watch the show. Those who only watch the show get that "surprise" experience, my guess is that the producers wanted to share that experience with book readers. The show is becoming a more interesting take from the book than it already is, so looking forward to the next season. And I say partial only because I read parts of the book, reading random bits like short stories.
  8. ​not to mention that in the Martian he gets stranded again, at least he's stuck on a planet closer to home
  9. AMBITION, a science fiction short film that celebrates the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Rosetta mission. It was featured last year when the Rosetta probe made its first approach. Thought it appropriate to link it here for anyone who missed it. Enjoy the short film, starring Aiden Gillen from the "The Game of Thrones" series
  10. Anyone interested in real world space science, here it is. The Rosetta probe was launched in March 2, 2004 and reached its target comet on August 2014. With a series of manoeuvres, it achieved actual orbit one month later on September 10. About 2 months later, we landed a smaller probe, Philae from Rosetta and since then, its been in hibernation, with concerns that it never attached on to the comet properly. And now its back in action sending data back to the ground team. More about it in the link below. http://blogs.esa.int/rosetta/2015/06/14/rosettas-lander-philae-wakes-up-from-hibernation/
  11. if there was a claim of FTL on a table-top experiment, one would be instantly skeptical. http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=37438.0;attach=827717;image
  12. Where it would have been a short response to a thread started by Optix334 here: http://www.tacticaladvance.co.uk/topic/2999-a-warp-drive-is-in-humanitys-future/ , turned into a mini repository on an EMDrive. Optix gave a good background on an EMDrive and thought it would be nice to have this overview on an EMDrive and a few links to some interesting pages posted on the nasaspaceflight forum page, for anyone interested in light of recent event. NASA Eagleworks' EMDrive proposes interesting applications for a low-orbit propulsion system. Such as for the International Space Station, which would
  13. Anyway, other than giant rail guns, there are Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). [http://astro.berkeley.edu/research/grbs/grbinfo.html] These are narrow jets of intense flash of gamma rays, lasting anywhere from a fraction of a second to up to a few minutes. As far as we know to date, these are the most powerful naturally occurring explosions in space cause by exploding stars that turn into a white dwarf (or a black hole). They've been compared to mass extinction events to complete planet atomisers.
  14. I would think nukes in space would be quite common and be used as an impact weapon on large vessels (maybe even in mining), simply due to its explosive-to-containment ratio, rather than an area of effect weapon in space. The radioactive area of effects on other ships near by maybe an added bonus but some ships might have better shields than others to negate this effect. I can think of an EMP as an AoE weapon to disable ships in a radius, cheaper than making a black-hole. Can't say that making a singularity is impossible, there are research papers on this topic as to how one might make an
  15. Currently: Origin M50 - personal transport (the space Ferrari) Will likely get the Misc Endeavor when the concept sale goes up. (which may as well be a year from now :-) )
