Gotta Love Those Tachyons! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

365 Days of Astronomy has profiled the tachyon, a wonderful time traveling subatomic particle that moves faster than light and has a cool name. If the powerful Tachyon Cannon wasn't famous for its market value in the Gemini Sector, its inclusion on the F-103 Excalibur definitely brought it to the forefront. Scientist Craig Robertson has recorded a podcast that discuses some of the theory behind the physics. The Wing Commander series is later mentioned as using the concept in popular fiction. Check it out here.
The Tachyon cannon is one of my favorites. It packs a real wallop, rarely fails and it's one sleek design.

Fleets Engagement Coming in Prelude Part 11 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

lew82 has posted a couple more exciting screenshots from the next chapter of Frontier - Prelude to Darkness. Both show off the huge space battle in store for part 11. Looks like it'll be a blast to watch everything go down!
I know that this part is taking its damn sweet time, but let’s just say making a battle scene between a opposing fleets is quite complex – one 300 frame shot I did yesterday took twelve hours to do.

The last week has however been massively productive in terms of how much is actually in this latest scene (Scene 25 – the final scene of Part 11). I have managed to squeeze another 10% into the completion status since the last update so by that rule, we should be looking at another 1-2 weeks.
