GeekSpeak subject for Saturday January 1st at noon SLT: 2022, the year of the Starship!


Early this year we will see the Starship from SpaceX take off.  It will be one of the most powerful things you will ever see. 

Starship is bigger than the Saturn-5 rocket, and it can land.  It will be able to carry 150 tons of cargo to the moon.  It has several contracts already for commercial launches.  Future launches will catch the returning booster rockets with a giant tower equipped with catch arms so that they can launch again after only a few hours for refueling. 

This will get humans into space big time if we are ever to go at all.  So 2022 is the year in which we become a space-going species.  Hold your helmet, it will go very fast.  Join us at noon SLT on January 1st to discuss it.  Bring your kerbal friends.

GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 12th December at noon SLT:


GeekSpeak – What next for SpaceX?

As you know by now, SpaceX has successfully (apart from the final explosion) launched and landed a rocket.  SpaceX Launch Starship on First 12.5km Flight

This marks the beginning of a whole new era so we would like to ask in this week’s GeekSpeak: What is next?  Where do we go from here to build a space economy and what will become of it?

Will we see permanent bases on the moon and Mars in our lifetimes?  Will SpaceX make it possible to live away from Earth?

Or is it just a pipe dream?  Or worse, a waste of money and resources?  You must decide.  Bring your spacesuit!

Are you a Trekky? Visit the Star Trek Museum in Second Life

The Star Trek Museum was established in 2006 and teaches real science in Star Trek format. Visitors can explore exhibits on Astrometrics, Warp Theory, Engineering and experience being beamed up to 10-Forward and using the two working Holodecks. Trekkies can also get a close up view of the starship and bridge recreations.

The Enterprise NCC-1701 is a full sized recreation of Captain Kirk’s starship. You can even sit in the captain’s seat and watch a Star Trek Tribute on the main viewer.

ShuttleCrafts are available at two locations on New Eridani. They fly from p’Jem Monastery to any place you want to see around the sim. Don’t worry if you cannot fly, these shuttecrafts are piloted automatically.

The virtual Star Trek experience does not end there. The museum offer information about the history and culture of Andorians, Borgs, Cardassian, Klingons, Orion, Romulans and Vulcans. Exhibits include recreated artifacts and you can even visit the home of the Grand Nagus, a Borg Cube or a Klingon house. Be sure to collect the freebies that are all over the sim and browse the outdoor market. After your tour  grab a bite to eat at the Federation Buffet table and dine on live gagh and blood wine.  

New Eridian is a sim full of adventure and so much to see and be a part of. The Vulcan Arena showcases a Star Trek Style Wedding and the Ceremonial Center offers formal events and trivia. Vulcan Home rentals are also an option for Trekky Roleplayers.

Aside from Star Trek culture there is also educational information on real life whale conservation you can learn about while at the Whale Observation Pier. Whale Watching and Scuba diving are some fun activities to incorporate into your tour. Inspired by Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Roddenbery Dive Team is another educational tour that combines the philosophy of Star Trek with exploration and protection of the earth’s oceans.

Beam Me Up Scotty

The Star Trek Museum of Science, established in-world by Sabri Picard in 2006, remains at full throttle (if not at warp speed), though it has moved to a single island in-world. “We downsized last year (2011),” said Wabisabi Matahari, the museum’s curator and Benevolent Dictator. “No more room,” she added when this deadline beater inquired about the model starships that were part of the original exhibit. “(It) just got way too expensive and donations dried up,” the amiable dictator revealed.
