And the 50MT bomb the Russians made was technically a fusion bomb, releasing a damn sight more energy than Fission could ever achieve.

Actually Tsar bomba was a hydrogen bomb that, while deriving some energy from the second and third fusion stage(most of it in tsar bombas case) still requires a normal fission reaction to start the chain reaction. Normal hydrogen bombs only takes about 30% more power from the fusion stage. So they aren't purely fusion bombs. And Since they replaced the secondary and tertiary stage tempers with lead, they reduced the original 100 Mt yield to half.

While the use of antimatter is theoretical until we get a proper fusion power source, controlling it's reactions isn't expected to be much harder than nuclear fission or fusion, they all operate on the same principles(atomic reactions creating energy) and generate hazardous conditions(fusion less so) that could lead to a serious accident without proper precautions. But yes it's highly theoretical and many practical problems need to be solved before it even becomes an option, if we get it before the middle of this millenia i'd consider us lucky. And even while the annihilation is a total mass-energy conversion, we don't know how much of that energy would be carried out by photons and/or neutrinos and thus "lost".

Ok, we've drifted far enough away from "Parker's Office on Pandora (RDA)". Nuclear energy cannot be compared to Unobtanium. As mentioned, it is a superconducter and works like a magnet (remember Iknimaya). My guess it that on earth, they use it in the same way that we generate all electricity at the moment; To turn turbines.

Irayo for getting us back on track. With the release of the iPad I have not had much time to get on. I agree that unobtainium is used as a super conductor, this would allow not only for storage or transfer of power (like in power lines) but it could be used in small consumer devices like those tablets the RDA's used perhaps those did not use unobtanium as a conductor but the next gen. would as it is we are begging to use man made super diamonds like silocon (or we will be). Sorry for leaving this short but i am on my Droid again.

as I said earlier on in the thread.  Parker has a baseball on his shelf.  I highly doubt that baseball will still be all that popular 140ish yars into the future.  who knows, maybe he's just a pack rat or a collector, which I think would be typical for a guy like him.

The first official game of baseball in the United States was held in 1846, some 164 years ago. The earliest reference to baseball comes 102 years before that, in 1744, but the game's origins stretch back even farther in various forms.

I'd expect baseball to continue to age fairly well over the next 140 years.

Ah, but in my opinion it is already starting to die, just as Polo is.
I still think it makes him a collector though.

Even if it's dwindling now it doesn't mean it's gonna die away, it's well documented. Maybe it made a comeback and is as popular as american football is now, who knows. As long as we have records of it, it won't die out, someone's always playing it.  Even golf is doing fine(now and in the movie) considering it originated from the 12th century.

Visiting the film, i see that parker has a few golf-related items in that shelf as well, few seem like awards so maybe he is(or was) a competitive golfer, but since it's played on grass fields, how would they play that there?.

Parker evidently likes to golf, as seen when he is playing golf using a mug as the hole, although that game is cut short by Hurricane Sigourney.

I do not think that Baseball will disappear, I do however think sport's like Golf and Soccer will become more of the American past time than Baseball. I too see Parker as a collector (he does not seem super athletic to me) and a side question, do you guy's think that RDA is an American company (meaning based out of)?

If you look at it and forecast RDA as a future company in real life than yes it would probably be Chinese owned (or at least have a lot of backing that would make it easy to get weapons but then again RDA makes everything themselves it is like a freaking Kroger with high explosives  ;))

I think it will be owned by Seto Kaiba, since he can screw the rules with all his moneyz.

You really are my hero for this. It helped us in (re)writing "American pie" today. It is a great "deleted scene." If it were in the movie it would cheapen it, but it is good to know that it made it all the way to filming. That is an important scene.

Well, then have fun! I know how rewarding youthwork can be and if you get money as an extra...

Now, if this was filmed there might be a chance it finds it way onto the BluRay, no?
That would make it something that "really happened" which for my rises the question: When Parker was but on hold, how did he get out?
Did Jake, Grace and Norm free him when they are rescued by Trudy and Max?
And if: how comes nobody seems to care? I mean: We got a company operation here. They tend to be rather hierarchical. So the former top-man is taken into custody for whatever reason and all are shoo'ed into submission by the guy with the gun. Suddenly - as soon as the big man is out - the former head reappears and no-one cares?

I still say that scene where Jake sends Trudy and Norm off to start the helicopter while he goes with Grace is a "leftover" from Selfridge getting locked up. It just doesn't add up in the current edit. But it DOES make sense to take Grace along, as the only person who would have appropriate dialog with Selfridge. In an "I told you so" kind of way, rescuing him while the colonel (who now has no reason to come back UNLESS he is victorious) has staged a coup, would lend a sense of corporate order to the situation. We don't see where Selfridge is during the final battle, so there is no clear indication yet--but if security takes over management, a *lot* of non-sec personnel will be afraid and angry. The idea that their new bosses are "anyone with a gun" (and a "male sexual desire" ) means they are a long way from Kansas. If Quaritch did at any point seize control, every one of his sec-op units just became defacto-prison guards, and the precedent that "management is a long way from Earth" and therefore on lockdown means anyone with a gun now has license to abuse power if they can get away with it. It's the difference between corporate pillaging and all out plunder, including any staff a: that gets in the way, b: has at one point pissed you off, or c: you have been wanting to abuse/molest while you are 6 years away from home.

If we find out that Quaritch has indeed overthrown Selfridge, the base would be complete chaos within a week. Only the all-out military strike would keep any sense of control. The moment they returned victorious, inside Hell's Gate would have been as dangerous as outside.

(snip)inside Hell's Gate would have been as dangerous as outside.(snip)
Unless you're one with a gun and lightning fast reflexes...
I remember the Stanford-Prison-experiment where one half of a class would take role as prison guards and the other half as prisoners.
That one turned ugly so fast that they aborted it on the sixth day.
It would create an interesting setup if Quaritch came back victorious and Hell's Gate fell under "law of the gun". I wonder if RDA-leaderboard would send someone to mop it up and restore order or simply change the name from "Extra-Solar Colony 01" to "Extra-Solar Penal Facility A"...
