JackDole, Aside from looking very, very cool, what purpose can rings like these serve?

Some unrelated images:

RS 8474-1353-6-38540-41 7.1 is a gas giant's moon and probably the most beautiful place in SE I've ever found. Many of the new volcanoes can be found here, you can see a green-tinged planetary nebula AND the gas giant it orbits is easily visible in the sky, pus a quite good view of the galaxy it's a part of (not sure if the Milky Way or not though)



I am using RC3 (as indicated by the volcanoes and detailed surface, plus the different-looking gas giant, of course)





Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.

The Ringworld, according to Wikipedia, has an area of about 3 million earths. (I have not recalculated.) It might therefore live a very large amount of sentient beings on it. Aliens and humans.

Not as much as on an Alderson disk, but still!

And with a little luck, they will never meet!

If such a ring could be built. Unfortunately, this is probably physically impossible.

Ah, I see, that's amazing. But I suppose type 3 civilizations will have no problems building something resembling this?

I fear also a Type III civilizations can not violate the laws of physics. dry

(Unless, of course, that what we call physics, does not exist in our universe.
If we and our universe are only a computer simulation then also could be simulated a Ringworld! biggrin )

How do you get these amazing colors, ShadowRaikou? I'm not sure I've run across a purple light source yet.

If you mean the asteroid moon, there is no purple light source- The asteroid itself is colored that. It's probably the farthest thing from realistic.

What makes the ring world an impossibility?

The centripetal force which is necessary to produce a gravitational force of about one g at the inside of the ring would tear the ring.

The tensile strength of the material required must have to be at least a million times greater than that of nanotubes.

This is, as I understand it, physically impossible. Not that I would understand much of it! dry

I won't understand much either, but that makes sense. But some of your other things like Alderson Disks are completely possible I assume?

To answer this, I do not dare! dry
In any case, you would need to consume the planets of many solar systems for this disc! biggrin

It would completely suck if Earth was the target of one such project. biggrin
