    The Martian [SPOILERS]

    Per Andy's request: Personally I was amazed that most of the "IT" work as done in hexadecimal editor. That was really nice accent. I loved the scene where they were stripping down the MAV in mission control to achieve lowest possible mass. Epic win for "convertible mars ascent vehicle".

    [Speculation] Limit to singularity size inside the black hole.

    For last few months I've been wondering if there is limit to how matter/energy can be compressed inside black hole. Current understanding (AFAIK) says that when you you pass Chandesekar's limit and Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff limit there is no force stopping the colapse. However question is...

    Idea South Atlantic Anomaly

    I have an idea of simulating some effects of South Atlantic Anomaly. Inside simulation it can randomally turn on and off MFD's, mess with MFDs and other systems (RCS bursts, hud visual artifacts), maybe some "visual effects" like flashes reported by astronauts over the area. Any thoughts?
