      Science behind "Stargates"

      So, Im no math wiz or anything, Im actually only in grade 11, but Im pretty interested in this stuff. And this is a serious question too. Would it ever possible to have a network of fixed Stargates like in Stargate Atlantis or SG-1?

      If you dont know of the series, these Stargates all have an address which you can "dial", and dialing a gate establishes a wormhole between your gate and the target gate. When you wake through it, you are particalized (<-- Word?) and re-materialized at the other end.

      Thanks!

      What your asking cannot be proved, therefore I cannot give you an answer other than my own opinion...

      Yes I believe "star gates" exist. While I do not believe they appear as the ones in the show, a more literal Star Gate may exist. There is evidence that some extraterrestrials have the tech to travel using Stars themselves. Not just videos that NASA has supposedly taken, but ancient pictures, drawings, and stories relay the same thing. This makes a certain amount of sense considering how much energy would be needed to jump from one point of the Universe to another, and of course how much energy a star outputs. Stars could also serve as as a refueling station for ships with this capability. Sunlight is the most obvious, and abundant, source of power.

      Thanks for your reply,
      So do you mean they use stars only as fuel for some sort of teleporter thing? Or am I misunderstanding you?

      I've come to believe they use stars for both, Energy and a form of quick transportation. Stars are much easier to locate than planets are, so placing a gate on a planet would have to be secondary. If you've ever heard of the show Ancient Aliens, there is an episode where they believe they found a planetary star gate in Peru. Look it up, I believe it's peru...

      But how would a civilization get close enough to a sun to harvest its power?

      Superior alloys/technology. We can harvest the suns power also, photovoltaic technology. Any civilization that wants to have intergalactic/interstellar travel needs to perfect this because it's a reliable energy source. You don't necessarily need to get close to the sun to harvest its energy, light travels until it hits something. The closer you get however, the stronger the energy will be.

      Pretty much all energy we have on this planet is from the sun, some way or another. Geothermal power is the only real exception.

      Stargate wormholes are God's manifold urethra.
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      No one will ever know if it's possible unless someone makes one. There's no way to prove that anything is impossible.

      I see.
      The comments about harnessing the sun made me think of these: Dyson sphere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      Would be pretty cool to see these used.

      OP: you're basically talking about teleportation. It may be possible to form a 'wormhole' in spacetime, nobody is really sure. I think they may be consistent with general relativity, it's just whether or not there's actually any method to make one. But you'd have to go out and build the thing, and there you'd be limited by light speed, which is very slow on the scale of stars.

      Squaring the circle? Koeningsberg bridges? Fermat's last theorem?

      You mean to build the second gate somewhere else you'd have to travel to the planet and that would be limited by light speed?

      The energy of fission does ultimately derive from general stars in the end though (the crazy fusion in supernovae), I guess that's why you forgot.

      Haha, everything can be traced back to suns in that way I suppose. What I meant was just all the energy on the planet that is essentially energy from the sun bound in some way or another.

      Welllll not geothermal, lol.

      Though you could say Earth is just a star which failed to fuse.

      Can't planets be born from a supernova? I mean, the Earth is only 4 billion years old, is the heat at its core really from the big bang?

      It's from the gravitational collapse of the matter which constitutes it (just think of the energy that comes from a tiny asteroid falling from space and then consider that the Earth is basically made of billions of 'asteroids which fell together'). The sun heated up in the same way; it's just that it got hot enough to start a self-sustaining fusion reaction. Jupiter got pretty hot but still not hot enough by quite a way; in a sense there's no objective distinction between the Earth and Jupiter in the sense of their being 'failed stars'.

      Being pedantic perhaps but it's not right to say that the heat from collisions is responsible for the sun's fusion reaction. It got big enough to have enough gravitationaly generated pressure to sustain a fusion reaction. As you no doubt know, there's an essential equivelance between heat and pressure. In this case, it's pressure which is responsible and heat which is the side product.
