    Moon bases could be made with 3D printers How well would the 'mooncrete' stay pressurized, though? Looks like it could save on building supplies, anyways.

    House in a bubble?

    I've been wondering if it would be possible, or, better yet, practical, to encase a house and yard inside of an inflatable plastic bubble, in order to control interior climate. Why would anyone want to do this? Because it would be a cool thing to do, that's why. :P

    Idea Retro-futuristic spacecraft

    From what I've seen, there seems to be a lack of detailed (panels/systems, etc.) retro-futuristic spacecraft. Spaceplanes seem to be the most detailed 'types' of spacecraft in Orbiter, with the likes of the DGIV, XR1/2/5, DGEX, and all the rest. :P What I'm proposing is a set of...

    Music shuffle game

    Since I'm bored, I've decided to start one of those infamous forum games. Put your iTunes/WinAmp/WMP/Banshee/iPod/etc. on shuffle, and use it to answer the questions. It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not. :P 1. What does next year have in store for me? "Innocence Faded" (:hide:) 2. Whats...

    Moving to another country?

    I've been playing around with the idea of moving to another country some time in the future (4-10 years from now). Although I quite like Canada, I'd really like to do something interesting with my life. I've been thinking of Australia, Switzerland, Germany, or maybe the UK or US. Any thoughts?

    Rant Comic Sans abuse

    I've noticed that the font Comic Sans is overused in pretty much everything. I've seen it used on posters, logos, and, most notably, my science teacher seems to be in love with it. :lol: Example: How am I supposed to take something seriously when it makes me feel like I'm in grade 2? Has...

    Weird Dreams

    Last night I had a really weird dream. I was in some kind of motorhome, and had my eyeballs replaced with artificial ones that had philips screwdriver holes on them. After realizing that they weren't as good as my old eyes, I went to the bathroom or something and tried to unscrew them with my...

    Question Feeling microwave radiation

    I know it's completely irrelevant to well, anything, but is it normal to be able to feel the EMR from a microwave oven? I don't feel like looking it up.

    Request Atomic Rocket

    What I've been wanting for a long time is a Heinlein-esque nuclear-powered rocket. I know there are already Heinlein-y rockets on Orbithangar, but it would be a dream come true if there was one that had complex systems like the DGIV, that is, ability to control the reactor, electrical systems...

    New Release DGIV Sound Replacement Pack

    I have just released a replacement sound pack for the DGIV on OrbitHangar and Dan's site. It's not a complete replacement, but it does make the DGIV sound quite a bit better, if I do say so myself. :P DGIV Sound Replacement Pack Credits to Doug Beachy for some of the sounds. :cheers...

    Over the last few days, it has been unbearably hot. At least 30°! The worst part is that it's not supposed to get any better until next week. :tumbleweed: Having said that, what's the weather currently like where you are?
