It's occasionally useful speculation and opinion that, once being proven or disproven to mirror reality, should be passed on or discarded accordingly.

Case in point: Marxism. Absolutely decimated by Zipf's Law. Time to trash that shit.

The stability achieved by varying the speed of the four (or more) rotors in a small-scale design would have a highly detrimental effect on the reaction time and efficiency (and therefore, the fuel supply) of a larger version:

Typically, they're enhanced or false color, so not strictly true.

And as if the conspiracy-tards need more ammunition, the appearance of Jupiter in 1968's 2001 is actually a more realistic depiction of how it would look to the naked eye...a yellowish, low-detail sphere.

>Sounds good but memes get funding

This will take a lot of funding, meaning you're going to have to sell it to investors, board members or even congressmen, who will bring in their own experts to analyze it, call it a hopeless pipe dream, and put you in a worse place than you were before you wasted time and money promoting it.

Watch the vsauce on a flat earth:

On a cuboid, heading for the edges would feel increasingly tiring, as you headed "uphill" away from the cuboid's center of gravity, which would be neutral and normal at the center of each square face.

Worse still would be approaching the corners.

At near light speed, even diffuse interstellar hydrogen is an impediment, and streamlining kicks in again.

We won't use spacecraft to traverse interstellar space, though...

>not testable so far.

Superposition collapse has been proven and verified.

The big controversy is whether it only collapses because of the measurement itself (Copenhagen) or the collapse is universal and ongoing (MWI)...

>Both sides are on some really intense temperatures.

It doesn't have an atmosphere, so it's a vacuum on its dark side. Vacuum is a perfect insulator.

Staying warm in a vacuum is not a challenge. Cooling off, is.
