A rather interesting fact: 1

2. may 2012, by hgfggg

Did you know that, before any man made device had ever reached space, fiction writers-and scientists, even- thought that Venus was a rainforest world? Bit of a distance miscalculation! Arthur C. Clarke, I believe, wrote a full book about a schoolchild who was locked in a locker on Venus for the only day on which the skies cleared? Unfortunately, life on Venus would be much worse. You would have to wear something similar in weight to 2 suits of armor from medieval times. If there was a problem in your suit, you would only have about one second to live.

To Serve the Masters

3. april 2012, by thegreatpl

So, I have written a new short story, taking a look into the minds of a couple of slaves with the Great Childrenic Empire. However, due to the rather graphic nature of this story, I will not be posting it here on the blog as I used to with stories like this. Instead, I have posted it into the KBW (knowledge base wiki) which is where all old stories of this site have been archived. If you wish to read the story, here is a link to it: https://www.galaxiki.org/wiki/kbw/To_Serve_the_MastersI warn you that this story can easily be considered NSFW. And is most definitely NOT for everyone.

What if every electron in the universe was all the same exact particle?

17. january 2012, by physicsguy

http://io9.com/5876966/what-if-every-electron-in-the-universe-was-all-the-same-exact-particleThis is an interesting idea many physics undergrads will come across. Based on observations, the central assumption cannot be true, but the insight it brings helped Feynman develop quantum electrodynamics, which in turn aided Hawking in dealing with some of the insanity surrounding black holes. Hawking radiation, in fact, becomes much more intuitive if positrons can be treated as electrons moving backward in time.

Geddi Star Naming System

15. january 2012, by rodenbough

For well over a thousand years the Geddi have used a binary naming system for the stars in their system. The first component is a letter from their alphabet which had evolved from a cuneiform script. There are over sseventy letters in their alphabet from Ak to Zsuf. The second component is the name of the constellation in which the star is found from the perspective of the Geddi home world.

If a star is too dim, it is given a numeric notation instead of an alphabetical one.

Since the Geddi uses letters to write numerals (Ak To Ikh is one to nine, Juz to Ru is ten to ninety, Sed to Abiq is 100-900, Bhan to Kho is1000 to 9000, Llek to Thiy is 10,000 to 90,000 and so forth.

If the name of a Geddi system is followed by an Arabic numeral (example: Sedniak 151) Sedniak is the number 151 in the Geddi language: Sed being 100, Ni being 50 and Ak being 1. 

The brightest stars are Ak to Cu.

The intermediate stars are Diz to Ru.

Dimmer stars are Sed to Zof.

The dimmest stars are as mentioned before, given numeric designations.

The Geddi People

3. january 2012, by rodenbough

The Geddi people are Hominid species averaging 1.7 to 2 meters and weighing between 65 to 90 kg for males and 1.5 to 1.7 meters for females weighing in between 45to 60kg. Obesity is not tolerated among these people. They are lean and hard. They have skin the colors ranging from amber,golden to bronze and have obsidian colored eyes They have almond eyes and pointed ears. They can be described as to resemble Asiatic elves from the Far East. Their hair is invaribly black and unmarried women have their hair cut to a length of five centimeters, not much longer than men's hair. When they are married they are expected to grow their hair to a length of 60 centimeters. The short hair sets the maidens off from the married women. The young girls are implanted with a birth control device until they get married. They are forbidden to marry until they have killed an enemy in battle. Unlike the Star Wars Empire, women had a a pronounced presence and influence in the Geddi Empire, not only did they serve in the Imperial Forces, they were prominent in the Bureaucracy,and many agents of the myriad police and intelligence agencies were women. The "with it or on it" mentality was fostered by the women since their antiquity.Being staunchly monarchist and aristocratic they supported monarchies in worlds that they wished to dominate and would intermarry with local dynasties. Such dynastic marriages are the sole exception to an ancient ban on native Geddi women marrying outside their race.The Children belong to the State and at birth are examined for fitness, the weak are euthanized, at ages seven, twelve and eighteen they are likewise inspected with the weak, sick and disabled being weeded out. Their education consists of military training for eleven years. Those suffering disabling injuries are expected to commit suicide. The Geddi acquired this harsh lifesyle because their race was almost wiped out by a 100 year long famine brought on by stellar degradation.
