+Max Eliaser So I know that, despite the obvious safety and reliability of a single engine, engineering one big engine has its own difficulties. And I know that traditional planes can still fly to safety with only some of their engines working, but with rockets it's all or nothing. But with a ramjet powered suborbital booster, would the following picture make ANY sense? Or would you want a single big ramjet engine?

I can't find any modern references to ramjet sizes.

Structurally systematized solutions are best. Sums up why I lean toward socialism and away from libertarianism. +Max Eliaser

Consider: suppose I can prove that if we no one threw spent batteries in the trash, it would improve public health. (And I can prove it, too!) OK, great. How do you enforce that? (This is a rhetorical question, but please actually try to answer it.)

Oh the strange things one discovers on the internet.

+Max Eliaser Could you use permanent magnets to suspend an artificial gravity ring on the moon? Would it be reliable, safe, easily maintainable, and cost effective?

You need a way to get on and off, but that's surmountable.

+Max Eliaser Do you happen to have a good quality version of Aqualung in an iTunes compatible format?

How do I sync songs to my phone and use the same playlists with another app? I have researched and tried lots of programs, none do the job unfortunately :\

It's not hard to turn an extra USB stick lying around that's collecting dust into extra memory for your computer, allowing it to run speedier and manage more applications better.

+Max Eliaser Long term, could it be more cost effective to have a rotating space habitat be in an orbit instead of on a celestial body, since it eliminates friction and power needed to keep it spinning?

On a celestial body, you can build acres and acres of solar panels, so power to keep it spinning is certainly available.

Sci fi topic: If one can easily wipe out communications or remotely take over drones, would it help to have manned communication stations to ensure friendly control over your communication system?
For interplanetary communications, would being physically closer to your drones give you the upper hand in maintaining control over them?
If drones are so vulnerable, and we imagine "terrorism" or whatever organizations are numerous, anonymous, relatively well resourced, motivated, and active, then would it make sense for anything with engines (or weapons) to be manned? Leaving only drones in stationary orbits, requiring other ships to move them.
The only instance i can think an engined drone would be acceptable would be if it were strictly AI, not remote controlled.

Ehh, I don't think so. Consider how much money is being plowed into subverting encryption by the NSA (probably a lot more than actual encryption research spending worldwide) and yet the encryption researchers are mostly winning. The math behind encryption works, and it works well.
