QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunWhat I've heard is that with a cube kilometer tank they can detect a dozen of neutrino's per year? You'll need at least something like 10.000's of detections per second for encoding 1 bit / ms reliable. I like the idea of sending a continuously updated lookup-table via a slower high bandwidth conventional channel!Yes important point, but some place one has to start. First transatlantic telegraph cable of 1858 gave us 0.1 word per minute, 1866 cable was 80 times faster. "It was not until the 20th century that message transmission speeds over transatlantic cables would reach even 120 words per minute". (wikipedia) ...Who would ever dream of todays information capacity just 100 years ago...All the experts back then would likely say impossible! Except of course my friend Tesla, wonderful poesy cannot be repeated too often:While listening on my cosmic phoneI caught words from the Olympus blown.A newcomer was shown around;That much I could guess, aided by sound."There's Archimedes with his leverStill busy on problems as ever.Says: matter and force are transmutableAnd wrong the laws you thought immutable.""Below, on Earth, they work at full blastAnd news are coming in thick and fast.The latest tells of a cosmic gun.To be pelted is very poor fun.We are wary with so much at stake,Those beggars are a pest?no mistake.""Too bad, Sir Isaac, they dimmed your renownAnd turned your great science upside down.Now a long haired crank, Einstein by name,Puts on your high teaching all the blame.Says: matter and force are transmutableAnd wrong the laws you thought immutable.""I am much too ignorant, my son,For grasping schemes so finely spun.My followers are of stronger mindAnd I am content to stay behind,Perhaps I failed, but I did my best,These masters of mine may do the rest.Come, Kelvin, I have finished my cup.When is your friend Tesla coming up.""Oh, quoth Kelvin, he is always late,It would be useless to remonstrate."Then silence?shuffle of soft slippered feet?I knock and?the bedlam of the street.Nikola Tesla, Novice
