Ik vind het wel erg jammer dat het kabinet geen correctief referendum wil, wat wel wordt aanbevolen. Het sleepwetreferendum is een mooi voorbeeld van een belangrijk thema dat te weinig aandacht kreeg in de campagnes en door een (niet-bindend) referendum op de agenda is gezet.

Resources come in from the north: copper, iron/steel, circuits, stone/brick, coal and solid fuel/plastic.

In the south trains leave with the resources that every subfactory needs: RGB, gray, purple, yellow and white. And finally a science train collects all science packs at the laboratory to the right. All trains run on nuclear fuel created by the centrifuge in the northwest.

The only exception is lubricant for electric engines (yellow), which comes in by pipe.

The other elements are the circuit factory, the refinery, the nuclear plant and the mining/smelting outposts.

Dark matter and dark energy are not undetectable. They are the names for something that clearly influences matter in the galaxy through gravity. For dark matter there are even maps where it is calculated to be more and less dense. This is mostly at the same place as galaxies and clusters. But dark matter and dark energy do not interact through electromagnetism, this is why they are called dark.

Black holes can be very visible through their accretion disks. The black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy has not been photographed yet because the center of the galaxy is full of many stars that are a lot brighter than this black hole's accretion disk. But since 10 April we have a picture of a black hole with an accretion disk in the galaxy Messier 87.

[–]roc 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The moon doesn't fall apart because it has enough mass to create significant gravity. At the surface of the moon the gravitational acceleration is 1/6 of Earth, which means that pieces of the Moon cannot just drift away into space. Gases however can easily escape with 1/6 gravity, which is why the Moon has no atmosphere.
