Now, using a high-tech 3D printer

Oh man, this article seems custom-made to give you-know-who an aneurysm.

The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.

I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

Wouldn't there be a lot of bone density loss for a structure that size in zero gravity?

What happened to him, anyway? Did the mods have enough of him or did he simply give up?

I remember reading some scifi that had interstellar capable creatures breding in the rings of s
Saturn, but I was pissed off by a three thousand page trilogy ending in a definitional Deus Ex Machina.

Was going to say isn't using bone a technique in Eldar craft manufacturing in Warhammer 40k?

It was peter f Hamilton. Reality Dysfunction, Neutronium Alchemist, and The Naked God.

Good series but your opinion of the end is spot on.

One character makes up for the ending and then some. And his initials are A.C.

Nicely done.

That's what I was hoping to find when I came to this thread ;)

I doubt the mods did anything to him. He wasn't a troll, he just ernestly believed that space was a waste of time, effort and resources that could be better spent researching longevity and extending human life. I always assumed he has some terminal illness.

Okay, maybe he trolled a little, but we all did. He was the only reason I'd submit articles about 3d printing or space.

In The Genesis Quest by Donald Moffitt the spacecraft was a giant tree called Yggdrasil.

Sure didn't take long for the comments to degenerate into a cdesign-proponentsist derpfest.

Awesome, it just goes to show the amazing design of the human body and the structural feats that human experts still cannot figure out.

Except that the article is EXACTLY ABOUT human experts figuring out those "structural feats".

But, yeah, human designs are inherently second-best to anything found in nature. That's why we're still struggling to to replicate the Kevlar that protects our major blood vessels located just under the surface of our skin -- without that organic armor, we'd be really vulnerable to bleeding out from otherwise not-too-serious wounds.

/still a bit confused, though about the Infinite Wisdom of running sewer lines through the middle of a recreational area

This thread is like reading a conversation among the Justice League after Lex Luthor's dead. Sure, the villain's been vanquished, and sure he deserved it, but they all miss him in a way.

Charles Stross did exactly this in Year Zero Man, O'Neill cylinder with the ends made of bone. He never published it but he did post it online; look it up, s' a good read.

Hamilton did a really good job creating a finely detailed universe then wrecking the crap out of it. I haven't been able to get into any of his more recent stuff, though.

I've liked pretty much everything he's written. Great North Road is nicely dense and twisted, but comes together well.

He was banned on Christmas day for threads hitting a thread about trucks and going off crazier than usual about space nuttery apropo of nothing. When the smoke cleared the thread was like 20 messages shorter. 0
