The Dodecahedron

Ever since I first watch Episode 7 of Carl Sagan's Cosmos called "The Backbone Of The Night" years ago, I was inspired to use the Dodecahedron as the symbol of Project Orion Renaissance and of the D-He3 Project Orion Starship since the Pythagorean kept the dodecahedron secret from common people which made the eventual Dark Ages possible.  The dodecahedron is a three-dimensional pentagon and this polyhedron has twelve pentagon-shaped sides.  Another reason for my adoption of the dodecahedron as my symbol is the dodecahedron being a symbol inscribed on a "Starship Theodorus Of The Planet Earth" Bussard Ramjet from Episode 8 "Travels In Space And Time" of Cosmos.  So the symbol on an Orion Starship will be the dodecahedron.  The original plan for Orion could not really go to the stars since it was too inefficient and could go no more then 1-2% the speed of light.  The D-He3 Orion which I am designing on the other hand can go at least 10% the speed of light and be ideal for travel to nearby stars.  Now you know exactly why I picked the dodecahedron as the symbol of Project Orion Renaissance.
This may sound a bit off topic, but I forgot to also mention the Mini Mag Orion which too is more efficient than the original Orion model and the D-He3 Orion borrowed form the Mini Mag Orion its magsail for deceleration.

FINALLY, the "Orion Crisis" is OVER!

Hello, this is Timothy McHugh and I am pleased to report that precisely 170 months after starting to the day, the Orion Crisis of Project Orion against X-Wings is finally over.  Before the Orion Crisis starting on Monday, August 17, 1998, I was using Project Orion to be who I am in the midst of many people who love Star Wars by pairing it up with the X-Wings in my mind in the ill-fated Orion Unity I.  My goal in the Orion Crisis was to have what I like and to be different in the midst of rampant Star Wars fandom.  The Orion Crisis started on Christmas Day, Friday, December 25, 1998 when I got a Star Wars video game called Rogue Squadron without asking for it and me not telling the truth about my feelings about it.  Plus the massive delay rather than solving this problem in 1999 was because my foster parents and a psychiatrist took away my Orion and some of my other security items at the time in an attempt to make me like Star Wars and I did not tell the truth about my true goals regarding Star Wars.  I did not speak my mind when my Orion was taken away in that I did not state that I want nothing more to do with Star Wars and that I wanted to have my Orion back while disliking Star Wars at the same time.  Another thing that I lied about was my feelings regarding the hostile treatment of Colo Claw Fish in the TPM underwater scene when that movie first came out in theaters.  The taking away of my Orion and my not speaking my mind about Star Wars when my Orion was taken away caused me a huge psychological mess that interfered with school and created unwanted obsessions for me that took me many years to undo.  I changed Project Orion's propulsion after the reality of it being shut down in 1965 due to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty finally sank in on February 18, 1999.

The underlying motivation for my goals in the Orion Crisis was having my toy airplanes taken away and my balloons popped by an abusive Filipino woman who ran a group home that I lived at for nine months form 1989 until May 25, 1990.  This is what Star Wars subconsciously reminded me of ever since I first rode Star Tours at Disneyland without first hearing of Star Wars in October 1990.  Although the scars form having my stuff taken away in an abusive group home and having my Orion taken away for 20 weeks solid have healed, I still need to avoid Star Wars because some of its vocal and avid fans give things that I like a bad name and this "Darth Tiberius" concept for Star Wars Episode VII.  People like Michael Wong and his StarDestroyer.Net vilify Star Trek heroes such as saying that the Federation is communist, racist, or evil and accuse Star Trek of promoting racism or communism.  My concern about the "Darth Tiberius" character in the proposed Star Wars Episode VII which William Shatner may play is that by his name he is named for the middle name of a famous Star Trek hero and that it might be an attempt to vilify Star Trek for the first time in an actual Star Wars movie.  So don't tell me that I have to like Star Wars in any way, shape, or form or else I will instantly block you if I can and remove your comments.

The Orion Crisis after many years of delay finally ends on Monday, February 25, 2013 and February 25 is officially "Orion Victory Day" (OVD).  The D-He3 Orion Starship's days of dealing with Star Wars are over and the only Star Wars-related thing I will do from now on with my refit Orion is befriend Colo Claw Fish in my mind for a new and stable long-lasting Orion Unity.  Actually, August 17 is Project Orion's second birthday or rebirthday because that is when I really got hooked on Project Orion in 1998, 185 days before the fusion refit was conceived.  The lesson that I learned form this 170-month-long Orion Crisis is to tell the truth about your feelings on something, even if you are afraid to do so.  This is a long story that no one post or blog can talk about so easily but I will write something on the whole history behind it.

The original Orion Unity was between Project Orion and X-Wing Starfighters as an attempt to feel included while being different and tragically ended 55 days before the Orion refit came out in my mind.  The current Orion Unity of my refitted D-He3 fusion pulse Project Orion and the sexy Star Wars eel known as Colo Claw Fish is called Orion Unity II and this one is stable and will not fail like the previous Orion Unity did on Christmas 1998.  That is because unlike the X-Wings, Colo Claw Fish never embody any type of foreboding in me or bring up any bad memories for me.

Project Orion Renaissance Inspirational Quote

Here is an inspiration quote that I adopted form a webpage on Project Daedalus for Project Orion as a D-He3 interstellar spacecraft:

"Then through the vast and gloomy dark,
There moves what seems a fiery spark,
A lonely spark with silvery rays
Piercing the coal-black night." - Edward Lear

Confused Matthew's real face

Hello, this is Timothy McHugh and I recently stumbled across a video showing Confused Matthew's real face, not his avatar which he uses for himself in his reviews etc.  This man is responsible for starting a YouTube war against The Lion King with his unintelligible review of the film in 2008.  There have been several commentaries on his TLK review which I enjoy.  This guy is planning to make a second review of The Lion King containing all of the same invalid claims and same logical fallacies where he will move the goalposts on legitimate counter arguments claiming to "address common objections to his original review".  And when he does, I will be ready to shoot him down and kick is ass into another dimension with an Orion Commentary!  Confused Matthew is sick and here is an image that I have saved onto my computer of what this mastermind of a smear campaign against The Lion King looks like in real life which looks very different form his avatar below an actual image of myself.
This is me
Confused Matthew
Confused Matthew, I am so furious at you for refusing to give up your prejudices about The Lion King when they have been refuted many times before and for vowing to cling to them and defend them at all costs no matter what the evidence says!  He refuses to learn about character and plot development which prove him completely wrong about The Lion King and takes anyone who shoots him down or likes The Lion King as an idiot.  Confused Matthew is banned form any Project Orion Renaissance activities because he bases his opinion about The Lion King on PURE PREJUDICE. These absurd prejudices of his in turn compel him to promote atrocities in sick fantasies like his threats to beat up and kill Simba for his character.  This a form of destroying for no good reason and therefore it goes against everything upon which Project Orion Renaissance is founded on.  Everyone who endorses absurdities that even foster fantasies that glorify destroying things that one dislikes for no good reason are forever banned from Project Orion Renaissance unless they change their ways and give up the absurdities causing their violent animosities.
The Keyhole Nebula rightfully flips off Confused Matthew to give him the "finger" that he so desperately deserves!

Why I dislike Star Wars

Hello; this is Timothy McHugh, I am a space enthusiast who dislikes Star Wars due to bad memories, forebodings, and psychological trauma that I suffered in its name.  I have written a full critique on of of Michael Wong's "Star Wars VS Star Trek Essays" in which he flagrantly and accuses Star Trek of promoting racism even though it is well documented and 100% OBVIOUS that Gene Roddenberry whom founded Star Wars was vehemently against racism which makes him either a deluded fool or a big fat liar.  I quoted and refuted the entire retarded "Racism in Star Wars and Star Trek" essay of his on a page of my official website.  Plus I wrote another page to which my aforementioned dissection of that StarDestroyer.Net essay is a parent page to on exactly Why I Don't Like Star Wars which you can read for more information.  I burn my psychological scars that I suffered from my psychological trauma in 1999 very deep to this day.  In 1999, my foster parents and a psychiatrist took away my Orion model in an attempt to make me like Star Wars and I made the mistake of not honestly speaking my mind, that was the trauma I suffered in 1999 to which I still burn all of the scars from it very deep and you can read more about it on the second link in this post.  Sadly, I sometimes receive hate mail from fans of Star Wars who are intolerant of the fact that I honestly don't like something that they like and any such intolerant Star Wars fans will be blocked from this blog and they can kiss their hate mail goodbye!
I receive lots of this flak form some Starwoids for stating that I honestly dislike Star Wars on the Internet!

That's right, I don't like Star Wars.

Alien Life

Previously I talked about three possible interstellar destinations for Project Orion and in this post I will bring up speculation about possible alien life and what it might look like.

First I will star with a Star Wars fish called a Colo Claw Fish which has the possibility of inhabiting a planet around a nearby star system such as Alpha Centauri and Tau Ceti instead of in a galaxy far far away.  Tau Ceti E and F are two possible places for Colo Claw Fish to live but we still have yet to find any planets in the habitable zone around either Alpha Centauri A or B.
One of my favorites is featured in the conclusion of Episode 2/Chapter II of Carl Sagan's Cosmos called "One Voice In The Cosmic Fugue".  In 1976 Carl Sagan and a colleague Edwin Ernest Salpeter made some calculations and came up with the possibility of the Jupiter "Floaters" and "Hunters" which Adolf Schaller painted and there has been subsequent art of the floaters and hunters by other people myself included.

Sagan and Salpeter's speculation stated with very little life forms called "Sinkers" that would have to reproduce before they are fired and hope that the turbulence will carry some of their offspring to the higher cooler regions.  They the two made calculations about some of the other forms of life that might inhabit a gas giant's atmosphere.  Jupiter Floaters are vast living balloons kilometers across, enormously larger than any Sando Aqua Monster, beings the size of cities.  Floaters are imagined in great herds for as far as the eye can see with camouflage patterns on their skin.  There are also other creatures to inhabit such a world, smaller, faster, and more maneuverable hunters.  The hunters eat the floaters both for their organic molecules and their store of hydrogen and there cannot be very many hunters because they would die off if they eat all the floaters.  Hollow sinkers would evolve into the first floaters and self-propelled floaters would evolve into the first hunters.  Physics and chemistry permits such life forms and art gives them a certain look but nature does not have to follow our speculations.  below is another speculative guess about atmospheric gas giant life which Adolf Schaller also drew.
