Why would something with no drive to live seek to rule over that which serves no purpose to it?

That's way more effort than moving around the human in the first place. Terrible logic.

>>16241606
you have to consider repetition. machine learning is used to improve the task, though it may take thousands or millions of iterations to reach the conclusion.

>>16241613
Wouldn't it then be better to, again, move around the obstacle?

it's a hypothetical, don't think too hard about it.

I want to see funnels/orbits/options actually animated like this.

Though there is an issue, take a look at that bottom booster after it's done flying. It's glowing pretty hot.
>>
>>16241587
How long can that thing actually fly? Only as long as it does in the video?
Looks like it'd run out of fuel pretty quick.
>>
>>16245325
I can't think of many examles of funnels not being used in space in UC Gundam, so I though they were a space only thing.
>>
>>16245363
They are. There's one egregious scene of a Quebeley's funnels being used on Earth in ZZ where they just float without propulsion, during a fight between it and Psyco Mark II.

Unicorn depicts funnels under gravity better. There's a fight between the Kshatriya and a bunch of Fed MS inside a colony, and there's a scene where Marida poorly decides to try and disable an enemy but ends up setting off the reactor because the funnels were never designed to work under gravity and were wobbling when she had them fire.

Here's the scene with the Kshatriya's funnels accidentally hitting the reactor.

I should add, there's one instance of atmospheric use funnels. The Shamblo from Gundam Unicorn is a land-use mobile armor, it has reflector bits equipped with twin rotor blades to hover and move around.

>Unicorn handles funnels under gravity better by depicting them being affected by gravity when there isn't any
I don't think the director is even stupid enough for that to be the intention of that scene, it's just difficult to aim funnels that precisely.

Tell me how you think colony gravity works so I can laugh at you
>>
>>16245893
Not that guy, but you're saying that in an Island 1 type colony, you won't fall back down if you jumped? I don't know the physics of centrifugally generated artificial gravity, but that sounds ridiculous.
>>
>>16245903
If you jump the right direction with the right amount of force, yes. Which doesn't even matter because the Kshatriya was never on the ground to start with. Why do you think that floating in the middle of a metal tube would be magically different than being outside of the metal tube?

Actually though the interesting thing is that for the funnels to be "stationary" relative to the ground's rotation they would need to have their movement constantly adjusted to follow a curving path, which may be why Marida struggled to keep them steady.

This. I actually referenced this in something where someone tries to fly a helicopter in a fairly large (But not too large) enclosed space with artificial gravity. It...doesn't work too well.

You're retarded, the funnels were close to ground level.

There's nothing theoretical about centrifuges in microgravity you inbred retard.

The closer you are to the center of the colony, the less gravity you will experience.
>>
>>16252082
The closer a point fixed in the frame of reference of a rotating colony your tangential velocity is inherited from is to the center of the colony the less gravity relative to the walls you will experience.

If you jump "straight" up 100' you're going to land in some weird ass place regardless (your jump will have a noticeable curve from the perspective of the ground) but your sense of gravity will still be based on where you jumped from the entire time. If you fly through a hole on the colony wall the ground will just pass by you the same as it was on the outside, you will have no tangential velocity, and you will experience no gravity.

The thing in this video is the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle, which is the warhead of the SM-3 and Ground-based Midcourse Interceptor missiles.

In contrast to the first generation of missile defense missiles which used low-yield nuclear warheads to destroy incoming weapons (and are still in use for Russia's missile defense system), US systems are based on the idea of trying to hit a bullet with another bullet.

It's not impossible, but the failure rate is high enough to be seriously concerned about the notion of American missile defense.

How is this thing supposed to turn?
