When you put it like that it makes me think I should probably not drive 100+mph anymore.

 

It was also a bit eye-opening to read (I forget where) that the height of a tsunami generated by an asteroid impact in water is equal to the depth of the water where it hit. That has some mind-boggling implications for impacts over deep ocean, which also happen to be the most probable location for an impact. The deepest parts are over 6 miles (~10KM) deep. Surf's up! :ph34r:

Thats minus the continental shelf variables as the tsunami reaches shore too dude. Its incredible. I did a humanitarian mission to yosuka during the Fukushima meltdown following the tsunami. I seen some wild places in my day but that was one of the wildest to witness.
The force of the small wavelength of impact at sea builds against the continental shelf of the landmass it encounters causing the wave to build. Its speed is slow its mass of water is great. The energy of the impact created by the asteroid isn't an issue until its energy builds on the continental shelf. Anyway ill shutup thats what I'm trying to share tho. Its reverse in that case the mass of the ocean and rise over run allows the relatively medium amount of energy from the asteroid at sea to become a huge wall of water. It is gnarly.
Like where as a rifle bullet relies on velocity not mass. The tsunami and ballistics is like that equation darci is saying like that just opposite . I'm done I just thought it was cool as f u guys know wsup.
I say that in a kind of nutshell tho. There are many underwater topography variables to be considered before bringing E=1/2mv^2 into an asteroid impact at sea and how it plays out when it reaches shore. But I'm just sayin yea quickly it is a good way to observe a tsunami impact. I always enjoy these threads. I need to get back to the what is reality thread but avoid it because ill likely speak too much. Nice thread tho guys I enjoy it!

I found this kind of cool. But its wrong form my b. I'm gonna just stop thinking about sharing the tsunami form right now.
There lol much better. This is what I mean to say.

It's hard to even wrap your head around using orbits to travel around space. And depending on the location of the planet in its orbit relative to the sun it could mean drastically changing the travel distance required between two planets. To space faring folk its obvious but the rest of us just think ya mars its this many kilometers away, yes but only at certain celestial windows when the two planets align in orbit. It is an effect that is lessened due to earth short rotation being a year but when you get farther out there and compare say Saturn and Jupiter it takes a long time to line up. If we ever managed to colonize with conventional technology you would have these crazy decades of lockdown where any travel would just be to far to make any sense

 

I think.... This stuff makes my head hurt when you really start trying to picture it all

 

 

They do deal with real space travel in this comedy series. They have an incident on a solar cruise ship when it goes off course and misses a planetary orbit turning the trip from three months to three years to be able to get back to earth.

Astronomers confirm orbit of most distant object ever observed in our solar system

 

Article link: https://phys.org/new...tant-solar.html
 
It's not just Farout, man. It's Farfarout!

 

Where it's at, if you can dig it:

Notice how close Mars is to Earth on that chart vs. all the stuff that's way beyond even Pluto. And it'll be all that we can do as a species to send a human or two to Mars some day (I don't think we ever will for various reasons).

 

Space is big.

Credit to those astronomy nerds for having some fun with the terminology

 

Usually prefer to use the term far fucking out rather than far far out but then again I am not using it to refer to an object way the heck out there

 

 

I know your out there planet X,  Reveal yourself

This sort of helps as a visual aid. Seems like they may have ran out of room, or is it planet discrimination leaving Pluto out of that model.

I did some astronomical calculations and shot a1 gal mik jug full of water hanging on a hook 5 ft from the ground at 270y Saturday. Thats all I got tho. I was proud. Lol. Good stuff tho. I'm interested to see if the new Mars rover produces some new sights from space.
That had been off a 100y zero tho if u were wondering. Yes yes cool space shit ty for it. I enjoy reading it.

Specific crazy outer space stuff is just as good as random!

 

I wonder what the members of the Flat Mars Society think about all this "Mars rover" nonsense?

 

 

I also wonder if a fear of heights would still be a problem during a space walk. How high off the ground does someone need to get before it won't trigger such a fear?

Yeah you wonder if there is a similar sensation before they step out of the space station like one would have waiting on a bungee platform. Although at that point you would be floating so without the feeling of gravity all bets might be off

 

 

I had to check if flat mars was a real thing, absurd beliefs seem to permeate the internet so why not a flat mars society. Their website seems to be in satire though, anytime you see a Jackalope you should know whats up.

 

Hmmm and a Pluto unicorn sub society linked on that page. You learn something new everyday

 

 

 

Seems my perception of the planet has changed, the horizon looks more like softer earth colours, like Tanntooie or arakis, or something like that. The weird red sky coloured planet in many science fiction movies is a bit off
