Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
As Bok, now a fully matured young man, is narrating a docu. Behind him is an external view of Bubbleopolis
Titles: Bolivar Clark Presents: Ask Me Anything
Bok: This unique city in space has various names: Galactica, Novo Paolo, Kūchū Rōkaku, France, Oz …
Bok: But the most popular moniker is 'Bubbleopolis,' for somewhat obvious reasons.
Tight focus on one of the translucent spheres, showing the structures within made tiny by scale. Bok narrates from a cameo.
Bok: The 157 Spheres of the city are not made of glass, or transparent aluminum, despite appearances. Borvonite, first developed by the legendary Hari Copperton to protect settlements on airless planetoids, has been continually improved over the past five centuries.
Schematic drawing of a Sphere absorbing solar energy from the Five Suns Again Bok narrates from a cameo.
Bok: Each Sphere absorbs 87 percent of radiation from the Five Suns orbiting their barycenter, as well as cosmic rays …
Bok: The absorbed energy is transformed into electrical energy which gets used to power the buildings and regulate the air contained within each sphere.
Caption: Not to scale
Back to Bok as in Panel 1, with a wry grin. Behind him is an asteroid smashing itself to bits, impacting a sphere.
Bok: The Borvonite spheres of course also protect against asteroid impacts.
Bok: The Borvonite is rated strong enough to withstand a kinetic impact of almost 75 Septillion Joules. That's more than the legendary Chicxulub meteor impact on Old Earth which killed the dinosaurs.
