Wouldn't this operate over the maximum altitude of those devices, though?

maybe current stuff...if we are building something like that we will probably have AA guns that reach low orbit as well. I am surprised we don't already with all the pesky spy sats that are about.

I am just glad the star wars bit is done...a defeisive satilite that shoots DOWN at the area it is defending? I'll pass on that, thank you.

Honestly, the complaints about what happens if it crashes? What if a skyscraper falls? I can understand your worries. Skyscrapers have evolved, give this a chance as well, doubt you all would have given a skyscraper a chance if it had been now being developed.

The empire state building could fly if it was going fast enough. So anything engineered and designed to fly has a pretty good chance. The problem here is getting the power required o\o move this thing and keep it up.
post #125 of 250
So I was seeing some concerns about taking off and landing. This thing would have to move SLOW. If it's fast, sure landing is easier, if you get through the air turbulence. But how would you take off?? It would either need to A) Pull the plane off backwards or B) Have the plane travel at its speed+take off speed. If the giant thing is going 500mph the plane would have to go whatever the speed required for lift up PLUS that 500mph.

My physics is pretty rusty but I think that's how it works. Let's just say it'd be a nightmare.

There could also be a flap or something that could allow the 500+ MPH window to hit the wings of the aircraft on the fuselage, giving instaneous lift to the take-off aircraft. It might be a little jolt on the way up though.

I'm fairly certain your physics is rusty in case B.

Tell me, how would a 50mph wind effect an aircraft taking off a conventional runway? Tailwind versus headwind?

Skyscrapers don't depend on moving parts to keep them flying at 500mph. This would be bigger than some skyscrapers, and would have to be built to withstand stronger winds

I imagine a platform toward the back that could be raised above the level of the forward wind screen. It's already moving faster than airliners need to for take off, so a plane could just start climbing (forward). Add an aircraft carrier's catapult to get it separated from the mothership quickly, lest a small bump of turbulence sends them both smashing back together as soon as it starts to lift off.

I was going to say something about metal fatigue and how would you replace the wings and engines while it was flying, but Skripka beat me to it. \\/\\/\\/

Yeah.

I know right? Whoever pilots or lives on one will totally think they are better than everyone else. I would not be surprised if a tophat, monocle, and twirl-able fake mustache were included with the standard issue uniform.

Wasn't there a pile of people winging that we couldn't get to the moon? or space?

The thing that needs to be realised about starting a project like this, is that there are a lot of things that need to be overcome and figured out. This is what 80% of engineers do on a daily basis. If you went back 25 years ago and showed someone a photo of a tablet pc and told them it can be done... they would probably have a heart attack.

If this ever gets built or even designed, there will be a lot indirect improvements in technology due to the design, that will eventually filter into day to day technology. Even further improvements in nuclear technology could eventually result in nuclear powered cars, etc.

The skys the limit..
