I love this new game!!!!!!!!

Ok, Eric says it can't be the transporter because only half your particles would be transported at once. I really wish it could be WARP speed, but I think that is unlikely.

My guess is something from the Sick Bay... apply the Cortical Stimulators!!!!!!


Eric is right about not beeing the transporters... Even if it were possible, Ive read that to scramble you to particles you need to be heated hotter than the sun... No matter how fast it makes me travel I dont want to be cooked that way... LOL

It's not related to medicine. Saddly neither was the WARP speed...

Im going to have to go with gravity plating
after thinking about it, it has to be Faster Than Light communication

Nope and Nope (I don't now if those has been prooved possible, but thats not what Ive learnt...)
It has to do with a more basic concept...

PS: LOL StartTrek will be the first steps ont space travels...

with the discovery of the higgs I assume its only going to be a matter of time before we can build gravity plating
and FTL communication possibly

StarTrek's holograms were criticized about having the same basic error than the one Im talking about...

Not the replicators...

This thing was thought as a big mistake until 1996, when it was demonstrated that it really works...
If that concept were really wrong, nothing on StarTrek would be possible...

(Should I give more easy clues?)

Warp drive?
(Although as far as I know this isn't possible..?)

(Someone mentioned "faster than light communication" but no one mentioned warp drive...)

I was also thinking warp drive, but then again I would have to have missed a rather big news story for that to be around! :)

Not antimatter, but related to the kind used and how is handled...

Magnetic bottle?


Yes! They used a magnetic field to contain antimatter, but they used antideuterium, which is just a neutral charged gas that has neither electromagnetic properties, so it was pointed that it cant be contained using a magnetic field...

Well, since 1996 it was thought that its possible to contain a cold gas with a magnetic trap and recently was prooven. Last experiment in 2011 (I think in CERN) was able to cool down antihydrogen and they keept it contained in a magnetic trap for aroun 15 mins. (and in this way they they got a way to study it before been anihilated against normal matter..)

The interesting point about this is that if some day we will be travelling far in the space, the best option for fuel (in relation to the energy that a certain volume can provide) is antimatter, but containing a hughe amount of it as positrons (or any charged particle) is way too difficult because those charged particles tend to repel each other, so being able to contain neutral molecules is much more interesting...

Anyway, the cost to produce antimatter is still a big issue, even bigger than needing hughe tanks of any other fuel...

(They also used magnetic fields to make solid holograms... AFAIK that's still wrong as you cant contain light in a magnetic field...)

I just learned this moon has a 30 foot solid tide. Name the Moon.

Titan. Notable because if the entire body of Titan was solid, the tide would be 3 feet at most. Therefore, Titan likely has a layer of liquid below the solid crust.
