As super cool as it is, and as gaga as I am about spooky cool future-tech hypotheticals, I would not like to be on such a ship if ever there was a
field containment issue.
I mean, crashing into something, blowing up, and other things give a peep at least a small fraction of a percent of a chance of living to tell the
tell about that one time ...
... , but, a Black Hole powered ship?
Nope. Methinks there wouldn't be many survivor stories coming out of disasters there.
Here I was all cozy in thinking that Bussard Ramjets were dangerous (at least for anyone in the way, like planets, other space ships, whatever), but
hey, let's try not to park the sustainable black-hole powered spaceship next to, erm, anything.
Sure, there's teeny tiny Black Holes that will evaporate after a few nanoseconds or some other small time scale, but, anything sustained that could
get off the leash ... oooo, that's kinda scary.
Next thing you know we'll portable black-hole weapons. Hey, they had something like Black Hole grenades in the last Thor movie.
Anyway, thank you for the thread. S+F.
Fun Stuff to think about!
