  1. Soloing and Multi-Crewing

    Hello all, As requested, this topic has been moved to a more appropriate location. Feel free to continue this discussion as per usual
  2. Greetings from M.E.R.C. Corporation

    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.
  3. Arma 3 ACE - We need more players!!!

    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 (so the above instructions are now outdated).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 Arma 3 channel on TS3. The following readme text is an extract and can also be found on the TS3 ARMA 3 channel NEW README: For increased ease of mad installation, we'll be using play.withsix to update mods. This is a lot faster and less troublesome than traditional methods of installing mods. The following is a read me text to help you acquainted with play.withsix 1) visit the webpage: http://play.withsix.com/arma-3 2)(a) Sign into the webpage using your steam account or any other listed preferred methods. 2)(b) Hit the <Get the Client> and install the play.withsix client. 3)(a) once installed click on the following link. It will take you to the current mod collection. https://play.withsix.com/arma-3/collections/9pm7hYG7QkiOFJQXqthOAw/Tactical-Arma-3-TA3 3)(b) Make sure you are logged on to your client and the browser with the link opened. Then locate and hit the subscribe button. The collection will now be added to your play.withsix client. 4) Open the Mod collection [Tactical Arma 3 TA3] on the play.withsix client then locate and hit the install button (normally located on the bottom left corner). 5)once downloaded, you can launch your game through the play.withsix client. This will insure that all your mods will be active when launched. Last part is to run taskforce radio (TFAR) on TeamSpeak3. At this part of the help instruction, it will be easier to instruct users verbally, so feel free to poke any of the helping people listed above).
  4. 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/technology-32780513 http://www.theage.com.au/it-pro/security-it/hacker-admits-hijacking-plane-midair-fbi-20150517-gh3fne.html http://gizmodo.com/how-a-hacker-could-hijack-an-airplane-from-their-seat-1705735617
  5. Game of Thrones. Don't Read if not Caught up!

    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.
  6. Rosetta's lander Philae has awaken from hibernation

    ​not to mention that in the Martian he gets stranded again, at least he's stuck on a planet closer to home
  7. Rosetta's lander Philae has awaken from hibernation

    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
  8. 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/
  9. A Warp Drive is in Humanity's Future

    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
  10. 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 save it a number of refueling trips - fuel needed in order to correct the ISS's decaying orbit and in turn, extend the its operational period. ​ There is currently a large discussion on nasaspaceflight.com forum page on the topic from enthusiasts, engineers and scientists from different parts of the globe, and it gained more popularity when experiments conducted by NASA Eagleworks indicated that laser directed through an EMDrive showed FTL results and further observation suggestions that a measurable magnetic fields produced were​ similar to those modeled in Alcubierre's warp drive metric.​​​ Some interesting Images posted on the forum, the​y can be hard to find so I thought I'd post them here. http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=36313.1860 http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=36313.0;attach=825750;image http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=36313.0;attach=825753;image http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=36313.0;attach=825752;image http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=37438.0;attach=827716;image Another interesting page where they explain how to graph the magnetic fields in the EMDrive. Also a good place to start if anyone wants try there hand at math for diamagnetism calculations. http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=29276.1840 On a short note in regards to skepticism on faster-than-light travel, if there was 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 As much as I'd like the warp bubble anomaly to be confirmed, I would wait till papers start getting published and peer reviewed and the experiment replicated over a period of time.

  11. Nukes in space

    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.
  12. Nukes in space

    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 artificial black-hole. From purposely destroying a star to focusing powerful lasers at a point to create a super-high density point in space to theoretically create a singularity.
  13. So....what ship do you have?

    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 :-) )
  14. Is the Carrack for you? (Poll)

    The Carrack is certainly a neat ship for exploration but I'll have to resist the temptation for now. However, this ship will definitely be something to aim for in-game but I'd also be happy to crew one.
