The First Ones

2. january 2008, by ignion

“From looking around the galaxy it is becoming apparent that there are ruins/mysterious devices etc that are very old scattered around. Are these from the same race (Hypothetically I've called them the first ones) or are they from different races? Are they now extinct, ascended, gone to the rim, or hiding in the event horizon of a black hole?Do we need a coherent design for this race or is it best left as a mystery?Any thoughts would be welcome” -Emmbee forum entry 2007-09-28 Since Emmbee’s observation, further evidence of the First Ones has surfaced throughout the Galaxiki. In some instances, the evidence is a lone ancient device or even the relics of a race still extant. In most of the cases, authors have independently elaborated on what Emmbee found. Placing ruins and mysterious devices everywhere, and in the process, forming a prehistory for this fictional galaxy. A Galaxiki search for “ruins”, turns up a number of interesting entries. Check out the Reindaal System, where the architectural remains of at least one civilisation can be found on Castaigne and Shaggai. The ruins on Castaigne date back 500 million years, and those on Shaggai are undoubtedly related. These were the oldest ruins I could find, putting this system high in the running for oldest inhabited system. Since Shaggai is also home to an unnamed spacefaring, insectile race, perhaps their ancestors are the First Ones? Further exploration of Shaggai is definitely warranted. Or maybe the insectile race of Shaggai migrated from another system? Jumplight over to the Noranthed system, where one finds the oft ignored planet Nemgthed. Despite it’s boring reputation, Nemgthed is where you will find mystical remnants of an ancient and advanced race destroyed in nuclear fire. Now the planet is home only to small plants and “insect life”. A coincidence possibly, until you examine the history of neighbouring Mectis, whose lizard-like overlords possess an ancient spherical weapon scavenged from a “long dead planet”. The dead planet remains unnamed. The Mectisorans are not the only contemporary race in possession of ancient artifacts. Consider planet Terragon in the Lumina system. The Luminoids have a long and bloody history, but much of it was erased by the tyrant Borgos. Nonetheless, the Luminoids have prospered from the use of technologies culled from Terragon’s ancient cities. Strange stone and metal artifacts etched with lost writings, imbued with strange powers. Some claim these devices are even capable of raising the dead. The list goes on and on: A titanic, antediluvian computer discovered in the Icarusopia system. Laboring for eaons to calculate the root of zero. In the Sanctum system, Ganite scientists are exploring a cyclopean temple and it’s extensive underhalls on planet Haunt. Evidence of a system wide conflagration and a “advanced reptilian species” in system VEC964. Chancel is another annihilated system with the imprint of an ancient and advanced species, now departed. And on Aeonipater, in the Naxiprimus system, a single menacing phrase. Blasted into the very planet’s surface.“If you continue to oppress us, you will face the consequences.” One could draw connections between every one of these systems, but that would be conjecture. We still don’t know much about the First Ones, and cannot definitively answer Emmbee’s questions. Here’s what we do know. Millions of years ago, Galaxiki was home to one, or more, highly advanced, spacefaring races. We call them the First Ones. The First Ones are gone, probably destroyed. Finally, something separates the current civilisations from that one. A gulf in knowledge, a Dark Age. We occasionally stumble upon their vestiges, and sometimes manage to use their tools, but their story eludes us.

Happy Apollo 8 Day!

21. december 2007, by databit

On this day, December 21, 1968, the first manned mission to the moon took off from Cape Canaveral. Apollo 8 carried Frank Borman James Lovell, Jr., and William Anders into orbit around the moon. Three days later, on Christmas Eve, the space ship entered orbit around our only natural satellite. They were the first humans to be able to see the dark side of the moon. The Apollo module orbited 10 times, taking pictures and television footage before returning to Earth orbit. On December 27, 1968, they returned to earth in a splashdown into the Pacific Ocean.

A Tribute To Captain Future

20. december 2007, by joskirps

Captain Future is science fiction character invented by writer Edmond Hamilton. Captain Future first became popular during the 1940's when stories about the character were published in pulp magazines, later on he got his own magazine and finally he got cult status after the anime series was produced in the late 1970's.Captain Future's real name is Curtis Newton. His parents, Roger and Elaine, were both scientists, they left Earth in 1990 to work in a secret lab on the moon. When their old friend and fellow scientist Simon Wright finally died, his healthy brain was being transplated by Roger into an artificial floating case. Together they then build a robot and an android called Grag and Otho (which may have inspired George Lucas when he created C3PO and R2D2, as they are fulfilling much the same role).One day, an evil scientist called Victor Kaslan detected the secret lab on the moon and killed Roger and Elaine. Their son Curtis remained all alone on the moon and was grown up by Otho, Grag, and Simon Wright. Curtis became a brilliant scientist with a strong sense of responsibility who now wants to help people and to protect them against villains. As he's a very shy person he decides to work under the alias "Captain Future".Captain Future's archenemy is Ull Quorn, son of Victor Kaslan (the man who murdered Future's parents).The famous japanese anime series was produced in 1978, one year after Edmond Hamilton's death. The 52 episodes are considered to be excellent adoptions of the Hamilton's literary work and the series became a huge success in Japan, Europe (Germany, France, Italy, ...) and Latin America, but only 8 episodes were ever translated in english and thus the Captain Future animation series remained quite unknown in the US and the UK. The German version used a completely new soundtrack created by composer Christian Bruhn, it is considered cult in Germany and other countries and is still used in TV shows on many occasions even today.

Faster than Light

18. december 2007, by databit

In a vacuum light travels at a constant speed: 299,792,458 meters per second. This speed seems instantaneous, but even at this speed; it would take a traveler from Earth over two years to reach our closest neighboring star. To make galactic space and colonizing of extra-solar planets possible, we would have to travel faster than this.Is faster than light (FTL) travel even possible? According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, matter gains mass during acceleration. Accomplishing the acceleration that would achieve light speed would give that matter infinite mass. Thus, to move that matter, it would require infinite energy. To go beyond this speed limit then would require even more than infinite energy which is obviously impossible. So according to Einstein, no, FTL travel is not possible.There are though, suggested ways of achieving FTL speeds. Warped space-time, wormholes, and zero-point-energy fields are theories for breaking the FTL barrier.Warped space-time theory is part of General Relativity. This theory states that in curved space time, it is possible to travel at FTL speeds. This is possible because a bubble of space-time is created around an object where space-time is collapsed at one end of the bubble and expanded at the other end. This creates a curved wave in space-time. The bubble is pushed along by this wave at a speed faster than light, but inside the bubble, the object would be traveling at a speed slower than light speed and thus not require infinite energy to reach FTL. This theory though lacks a method of the creation of such a bubble as well as a way to leave the bubble once inside.Wormholes are another FTL travel method. A wormhole is basically a tunnel in space-time between two points. The two points in space may be further apart than the tunnel is long, so by traveling through the tunnel, you essentially take a shortcut between the two points. You do not actually travel at a speed faster than light, but you arrive at your destination sooner than you would if you would have traveled the real distance at the speed of light. The best description of this is an apple worm. The worm is on one side of the apple and needs to get to the other side. He can get there two ways, he could walk all the way around the outside of the apple, or he could tunnel through it. Walking around the apple is a lot further than burrowing through it.A new theory for FTL travel involves zero point fields. If you take a beaker, and vacuum out all matter, all energy and create an absolute vacuum, it will still be possible to pickup energy readings from inside that beaker. This is referred to as zero point energy. This is caused from energy particles suddenly popping into existence and suddenly disappearing at incredibility short intervals. During this time of short existence, the particles move, and on the odd occasion, these particles interact with matter that they might intersect. At any given moment, at any given location, these particles are popping into existence, moving a little, and poofing out of existence. The motion of these particles is very miniscule, but tends to be towards mass. One might speculate that the movement towards mass is caused by gravity, but the theory of zero point energy fields is that this movement and interaction with matter actually IS gravity. Each particle of energy exerts a very small amount of force as it passes through matter, but combined, this motion of the particles towards mass draws masses together. Likewise, this interaction of zero point energy with matter can explain inertia. As an example of inertia, picture a car parked in the rain. The rain drops are the zero point energy particles. The front of the car, sides, and back all are subject to the same density of rain. If you start to move the car, the rain density at the front of the car will increase while the rain density at the rear of the car will decrease. In the same way, an object at rest will have an equal amount of zero point energy particles around it. This holds the object in place. When the object starts to move, the zero point energy particles are denser in the direction of the movement and create resistance to the movement. At the rear of the object, there is a vacuum of zero point energy particles created that creates drag on the object. When the object is no longer accelerating, the zero point energy particles become balanced around the object again which holds the object into the same motion it is currently following. If the zero point energy fields could be blocked, inertia and gravitational effects could be negated or greatly decreased which would greatly reduce the amount of energy required to push an object to FTL speeds. The theory is that these fields could be blocked using electromagnetic forces. At this time, the closest example of this would be the levitation of objects (i.e. live frog) in a superconductor electromagnetic field.If we could travel at the speed of light, there are other factors we would have to consider as well, such as collisions. If your path was not absolutely clear of debris, then it would be nearly impossible to steer a ship around obstacles at light speed. By the time a computer could even detect an object in the movement path, a collision would have occurred. And traveling at or above the speed of light and colliding with an object, even a speck of dust, could be fatal because the force of the collision will be equal to the mass of the object times the combined speed of both objects. The speck of dust in relation to you, would carry nearly infinite amount of force on the collision.At this time, our technology does not allow for FTL speed travel. But if we are to survive the eventual destruction of this world, it will be required.

The Apollo 20 alien spaceship hoax

18. december 2007, by joskirps

Apollo was NASA's moon exploration program. In 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first men to walk on the moon with Apollo 11, the last Apollo mission was Apollo 17 in 1972. Apollo 18, 19 and 20 were planned missions, but due to budget constraints they were finally canceled.Apollo 20 had already been cancelled in on January 4, 1970 as its Saturn V rocket was now needed for the Skylab space station and budget restrictions had limited the Saturn V production to the original 15 flight models.Nevertheless, you can find a large amount of false info about Apollo 20 on the web - years ago William Rutledge, a man living in Rwanda who claimed to have been a former Bell Laboratories scientist and employed by USAF, said there was a top secret soviet-american Apollo 20 mission that found an alien spaceship on the moon.According to the conspiracy theory Apollo 20 arrived on the moon on August 16, 1976, about four years after the last official Apollo mission. The destination was Delporte, a lunar impact crater on the Moon's far (dark) side. Crew members were William Rutledge (US), Leona Snyder (US) and Alexei Leonov (USSR), and their mission was to explore an alien spaceship apparently detected by the Apollo 15 crew (David Scott, Alfred Worden and James Irwin) in 1971.It can at least be confirmed that Alexei Leonov was a real astronaut, he was even the first person to walk in space on March 18, 1965, and he commanded the Soviet side of the Apollo-Soyuz mission, Soyuz 19, the first joint space mission between the Soviets and the USA. In Arthur C. Clarke's "2010: Odyssey Two" the fictional spaceship "Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov" in the book was named after him. But Lenov never admitted having been part of a top secret Apollo 20 mission.If you believe William Rutledge's story, the astronauts visited both an ancient city on the moon's surface as well as an alien spaceship. They were also able to collect some alien gadgets in the ship and brought one of the two dead alien pilots back to their Lunar Module. An analysis of meteor impact density on the city and the ship apparently revealed that both the city and the ship must been there for about 1.5 billion of years. And it seemed that the ship had already been explored before (probably by another alien race?).William Rutledge posted videos and images on YouTube (username "retiredafb") and other websites, and the story even got some media coverage. Even if there are considerable flaws in the videos that allowed to identify the story as a hoax, one has at least to admit that they are well done and look quite amazing and that Rutledge (or who ever released this) spent some time on creating the mockups.
The story probably has its origins on a former story about photos taken during the Apollo 15 mission. These images are genuine NASA photos and can be downloaded from the Universities Space Research Association for example. Image AS15-P-9625 shows the Delporte region, which really includes a quite strange object:http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/apollo/frame/?AS15-P-9625It's probably nothing but an optical illusion (remember the Face on Mars?), but you'll have to admit that it looks like some kind of a cigar inside a crater, and it even seems to cast a shadow on the surface.
