Re: Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic If the pilot knew about a flak field and flew through it anyway then I wouldn't count it against either category. If he knew about a SAM, but couldn't duck it

Re: Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic Short range gunfire is probably the most common example; long range gunfire is something you can't see coming but could outmaneuver if you could see it coming.
Re: Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic Not counted for either one. Examples?
Re: Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic How do we count things they could neither out maneuver nor see coming? From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Henry
Re: Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic Some of the Arab - Israeli wars might qualify due to the disparity of pilot training involved and the heavy use of SAMs. Where to get at that data I don't
Tossed this stick at an F-35 critic "has there ever been an air war in which more fighter pilots were killed by things they couldn't out maneuver rather than by things they just didn't see

Re: Sword into Darkness I'm still reading this one. Overall i really like it except for some spots. Obviously i'm biased against manned missions going in harms way. However my biggest
Re: For those of you who are fans of old school roguelikes I must be the last surviving human to think of Fortran when I hear the word "cards".
Re: For those of you who are fans of old school roguelikes ... Cool, thanks! I had never heard of it before. A rather nice piece of computer game history. By the time I started programming, we were using CRT widgets
For those of you who are fans of old school roguelikes Saw this posted and since there was recent discussion of roguelikes figured I'd pass it on: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?page_id=29385 Andy
Re: Weird Science Question: If Gravitons existed, could they escape The problem is that physicists are still assigning forward time biases (and hence positive mass/energy) to virtual particles despite overwhelming evidence that

Re: Weird Science Question: If Gravitons existed, could they escape ... No, and no. ... Yes, they are. Google "graviton self-interaction". ... No. Stating that gravitons cannot escape a block hole is equivalent to saying that
Re: Sword into Darkness This novel even mentions the use of graphene; a product which will change the world away from the steel age. Or maybe plastics age. Composites age? Sent from
Sword into Darkness Good read, very solid science apart for one plot derived McGuffin. Good storytelling and the author's naval experience serves him in very good stead. I loved
Weird Science Question: If Gravitons existed, could they escape a bl It sounds like a bootstrap question. If Gravitons exist, would they be able leave a black hole? If not, would that imply that black holes as we know them,
Re: Here be Dragons. It was unusual that drones would be in combat over Australia but not in space; except as sensor platforms. Cairo did seem an odd choice. If there was going to

Re: Astronaut Eye Problems Could Be 'Showstopper' for Manned Mars Mi ... Or it could simply argue in favor of the baseline approach of using spin gravity. I favor a dumbbell configuration spacecraft, although it seems like no
