The Best Way To DESTROY Earth! | The SCIENCE of... Solar Smash

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►

Theorists, what does it take to blow up a planet? That is the basis of the mobile game Solar Smash, finding the most creative ways to destroy the world. Today, Austin is going even further. He's going to try to figure out how accurate the death laser of Solar Smash is and how much power it would REALLY take to blow up a planet like the Earth.

  • I think I did a presentation on this topic (not Solar Smash, but breaking planets) in a Physics class a few years back. The main bit of the presentation was about how inefficient a Death Star was for the purpose of wiping the population of a planet. Specifically, the fact that you don't need a moon-sized space station. Just a small automated spacecraft with a hyperdrive, on a Kamikaze run of the target planet. From all of the >1000x Lightspeed videos, I think Grey can attest to the fact that it is entirely capable of sterilizing a planet.

  • I made a meta ([most effective tactic available] and [surpassing] and [learning/evolving] ai, I dubbed her MAI (the female name pronunced "My") out of paper, then one out of food. Seriously folding boxes out of paper, and folding paper for the rng beads, folding paper for the board, folding paper for the pieces etc. Origami MAI. Then food MAI.

    • I only made the food meta ai because after making a perfectionist goaled ai, or meta ai, I wondered, if such could be made with paper and just about anything else, cards, etc and almost anything even circumstances, reality, etc can be an rng, can the unpredictability of food and something like a mix of chips like munchies be used for it too? Then I realized the answer was yes. I thought making an ai out of food, an edible ai, this experiment could be eaten afterwards. That would be scary to both the ai and the people around me, weird. The future really is now. I thought this over and over going through calculation after calculation as I walked to the convenience store to buy the materials for the experiment and invention. The material was food. Then I went to the park and did exactly that. I even gave a lecture. It was fun. But intellectuals are not unfamiliar with such methods. You aren't alone. If I'm bored I do things like this and making games to only take them apart later. I really don't care anymore. I think all intellectuals, even polymaths like me, reach the realization that nothing really matters, and go through exceptional boredom.

  • Also sentience wins out against immature animalistic temper tantrums. Grimes went for Musk, Stephanie Cordova went for Matpat, Kyle hills gf went for him, Sara weaver (Blondie) went for me. Successful women go for successful men. Your supermodel gf will most likely happen. Keep going. like the ant on a rubber string, you'll get there. Sentience and sapience is what makes humans not animals. Nobody wants regressed genes. So don't worry. Though if you want to calculate it go ahead. Just saying.

  • Also if you want a ray gun irl, concave and parabolic mirrors in a pattern of concentrating focal point is useful. You can use two mirrors pointing at one mirror or point, then have two of those setups point at another mirror or point for binary exponential amount then combine the parabolic mirrors in a concave setup of multiple converging beam from a large surface area to a small surface area. (Think house of mirrors or the death ray architect [look him up.]) Then make a network of these with multiple of these because all of these in one place is too much surface area you probably don't have. so use buildings, environment, a lot of places, etc. Then increase the base part of the equation amount of collective multifaceted parabolic mirror arrays concentrating into each parabolic mirror array to get a large base with high exponents. Then bam. This could also be used for solar power. I called this SARA (sunlight amplified through rebounding array), after my gf for whom the avengement of was this monstrous weapon necessary. And yes the FBI/government/musk/etc knows of it. Amplified is only somewhat accurate. The magnitude doesn't really increase and it requires charge time (think spartan laser charge time,) but the exponential setup and algebraic shifting of the statistics of the samples net a similar situation (also I wanted to give homage and respect to laser (light amplified through stimulated emission of radiation.) A smaller handheld version can be achieved by reducing according to scale and scope and using a flashlight or laser pointer as an ammo cartridge. Even a pencil with a laser on the end could be loaded into this. Scale up for orbital strike and beyond. Enjoy. Oh and a series different sizes and scales of magnifying glasses for a focus scope. Yes that means modifying parts for such a gun. Can anyone find the rest?
