--Foo1 16:06, 10 April 2006 (EDT)You're confusing the Habitat with the AYSE Drive again. the Habitat is made from Drywall. Or you can add a pseudo-science label to this article, and claim it is made from an aluminum shell with insulating blankets, etc. Avacar 11:59, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

I had the understanding that the whole pseudo-science debate was moved from the forums to the wiki. Perhaps we should add that all the habitat systems articles are pseudo science. --Foo1 23:47, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
But what we're trying to do is get away from "pseudoscience" as much as possible. We're trying to base our systems off of existing systems with, perhaps, some extrapolations. I want to make absolutely clear that before you go creating something out of thin air, you should look at things that have already been built and inspire yourselves from there.

What I meant by pheudo science is that the technology would be soundly based...but does not exist in 440. The hull construction is similar to that of aircraft and ships so it's science. It's pheudoscience because the actual hab at 440 is not made out of metal honeycomb. We should make a lable that explains that this is how the theoretical habitat works...otherwise viewers might get confused. The habitat article says that the hab is drywall...yet here it says that it's aluminium honeycomb...--Foo1 17:30, 9 April 2006 (EDT)
You are going to need to develop a wiki convention for dealing with this. The Habitat is made of drywall, that needs to be stated. Yet somewhere else you need to state what you are pretending it is made from. (Or explain why your special super-dense drywall works in space). Perhaps you should open up a new namespace, such as Pseudoscience:XXX so that you can have Habitat and Pseudoscience:Habitat as seperate files, then make it a convention to have the namespaces cross-reference. Thoughts? - Avacar 12:21, 10 April 2006 (EDT)
I would have liked that...except my wiki skills are lacking--Foo1 16:06, 10 April 2006 (EDT)
I kind of agree, this article is Pseudoscience, though I find the Drywall argument a bit.. dry. ---Wernstrum, Stargakat, Jonas 01:13, 17 April 2010 (EDT)

Faraday Cage


the Faraday cage protection system only works if you can ground the cage. On a planet with a non-conductive surface, this would be a real problem.

On a side note, when adding a new comment on a new topic, you should all start using the '+' button instead of 'edit'. - Avacar 12:08, 12 April 2006 (EDT)

Hull Plating vs Hull Construction

Can we just put both of these on the same page or delete this page. If not, is there a reason for having both? IronyFail in ANAGLYPH 3D! 13:13, 9 June 2010 (EDT)

Plating is more in depth and should be kept. >>>Q-Cumber 18:04, 9 June 2010 (EDT)
