[/.] NASA Plans Probe to the Sun - Page 9

post #81 of 106
None of this was planned, a NASA security guard wrote it out on a beer-stained napkin at 3 am, and the heads decided it was a good idea and to roll with it.




Or at least that's what some of you seem to believe...

There are a few things that bug me about this thread.

A. Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.
B. You'll never need to travel faster than the speed of light, because if you travel close enough to it, any journey , regardless of distance, takes just an instant (relatively).
C. The Sun doesn't burn.
D. You're all figments of my imagination.

Enjoy.

Read a book.

6.6 billion degrees F.

Mmm...

I think we should build a thermal probe to the sun made of stupid people.
post #86 of 106
If they can barely get spacecraft back through orbit without burning up, how's it going to handle the sun

Also, if it does in fact withstand the heat, how are they going to counter "million mph winds"? Do they think it's just not going to get blown away?

You know what they really need to study the sun? A Gundam.

We can't even travel between the planets in our own solar system yet. After we can finally do that (will take a few more hundred years), we will have to travel to other solar systems within our own galaxy, THEN we will have to travel to other galaxy's. This is to say that a rock bigger than earth does not randomly end up in our solar system and accidentally bump into us (of coarse destroying everything). Hat's off to NASA! Not that you really ever could forget the USA, we will be immortally remembers for all that we have done to explore the vast world of space.

Right now we are limited by the speed of light. In order to travel between the VAST distances, we will need something that travel much faster. Hopefully, through this experiment, NASA will learn how to catch the solar wind coming off the Sun and catapult a probe millions of mph out of our galaxy. I sure hope I'm a live for that!
I sure hope "millions of mph" means more than 670,616,629.4mph, or we're S.O.L.

Lol @ Overclockers thinking they are NASA Scientists.

Just because you all know how to volt-mod a graphics card, doesn't mean you automatically have l33t $pac3 n0llidge.

To all the people who say. ''We have enough problems here, stop looking out to space''

Well erm...just because we have problems here does not mean we should all have narrow minds and just ignore whats out there. Thats just dumb and it Human nature to explore.

For Example. We all have problems.. so just because we have problems doesnt mean we all just lock ourselves in our house and hope for the best and pretend there is nothing else out there.

I think this will be a very hard task for NASA . I hold high hopes. I think there will be many complications and perhaps the probe gets destroyed....Well so what, thats part of the learning process. We can then learn from the first probe and build a stronger one that may fully succeed. Just because you fail the first time does not mean you should just give up and go home.

Do you give up on your first overclock and think ''We that OC was not stable so screw it whats the point'' ?. I bet you dont.
