    I still think this is one of the silliest petitions ever. If any space program deserves funding it would be the 100 Year Starship Initiative.

    And even if you could build it, wtf would you do with it? What planet would you feel the need to blow up at some point, since we can't get out of the system? It's not like you could turn the superlaser on, say, Iran and just blow up Iran. "Silly" is putting it mildly.

    Actually, people living on the outside of a Dyson Sphere is a nice idea for a story.

    So, erhm, this civilization builds a Dyson-sphere around their sun and spend the next couple of million years filing it in with their kind.

    Meanwhile a whole new civilization spawns from bacteria on the outside...

    Which civilization will be victorious in The War of the Dyson Sphere?


    -Just a thought.

    ^^ Nobody knows the trouble I've seen.

    I was thinking more of a non-civilization of loners and non-conformists, but there certainly could be an eventual conflict-- especially if any of them fall through the roof. :rommie:

    I think such a 'super structure' would be big enough to have BOTH scenarios take place simultaneously :rommie:

    If they could just blow up individual starships in RoTJ, then I'm sure we can just blow up Iran or Canada or something.

    Plus think of all the surface area we could sell ad space on. Financial Crisis solved.

    That doesn't mean people won't find an excuse to have a conflict.

    We should've elected Newt Gingrich. He wants a moonbase after all, if anyone would've gotten behind this, it would be him. :p

    In a word, yes, if the giant slug is fictitious. Okay, that's seven words, but you get the point.

    I figured Obama would get a kick out of this one.
