OK, back onto the Tsar Bomb. Earth is already not a perfect sphere, the kinetic energy released by the disruption of the tectonic plates would not take the planet out of it's original?
I mean the earth orbit the sun where it is because it's center, if you disrupt the outside layers and flow of magma, wouldn't the center be re-centered somewhere else for some time?
That is massivley helpfu, maybe im computer useless thats all.Yep but having to go into the different forums and out again gets a bit tiresome,
That's a nice suggestion about drop-downs, but quite a hefty job to implement; I might put that on my list for a longer-term project...
But, just to flag - and you may know this already - you can see what's new in several ways:
1) Click on "RECENT TOPICS" at the top - or https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?action=recenttopics
2) Use the "POSTS" dropdown option at the top and select either "Unread Replies" for an amalgamated list of all the new replies in threads in which you have participated (indicating which board), or "Unread Posts", which is a list of ALL the new posts made in any board, forum-wide, that you've not reviewed yet.
Hopefully that's helpful.
Seems wierd that to me, perhaps a contender for dark 3nergy or dark matter.The detonation of a Tsar Bomb at the Mariana's trench, at the bottom of the pacific ocean would surely move the planet out of its current position...
I'm guessing you watched that video from Ridddle too, huh? It's a load of bunk. Tsar Bomba could do nothing to significantly change Earth's orbit, regardless of how you partition the energy. Keep in mind that the asteroid that left the Chicxulub crater released about two million times more energy than Tsar Bomba yet even that didn't push Earth significantly.
The detonation of a Tsar Bomb at the Mariana's trench, at the bottom of the pacific ocean would surely move the planet out of its current position...No
We are on a rock flying through space. We can only alter that path if we have something to push against and , since nothing arising from such a detonation would leave the earth, it can't push us.
That's pretty basic physics, formally referred to as the conservation of momentum.
"If by mans activity during the hours of daylight (point of the earth facing the sun) applies force to the surface of the earth, whilst by the hours of darkness he is static, would this activity have an effect (however small) to permanently alter the distance of the earth from the sun"The detonation of a Tsar Bomb at the Mariana's trench, at the bottom of the pacific ocean would surely move the planet out of its current position...
The laws of momentum conservation make this impossible.
Essentially, nothing on earth can change the earth's orbit, because it would have nothing to push against.
Needless to say, gigantic tsunamis would kill most of humans on the process witch given the facts is not entirely a bad thing...
BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it’s due to rights issues.Try bbc world and search "sky at night". It iss not an expensive production, and is educational and informative so there is a strong possibility that it is avaliable. We have rights issues with the bbc here, i cannot watch bbc world service news channel, yet im in the british part of bbc !
I couldn't play the video but could read the short article. Dark natter and dark energy are interesting topics. Thanks for the link.
That would be personality, not conciousness.... a large enough computer should be able to support many AI, at the same time ... could the brain do the same thing?

Thread drift alert!You musnt have your robot butler either then.
Back in the 70s, I recall reading a prediction that by the end of the century we should be able to see the lights of colonies on the moon, with the naked eye. I think it may have been in Adrian Berry's "The Next Ten Thousand Years". I apologise if I wrongly tag him as a false prophet.
