The elusive Space Pirate: hide in the fridge from the cops, defeat the droid war and spit Sauron in the eye

 3r33532. 3r3-31. The article is written under the vivid impression of the post “Piracy in Space - Deceitful Delta-V and Hydrogen Stealth-Steamboats - Part 1” and is an alternative view of the represented universe. We will often refer to what is written in it and write so that there is no need to read it. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Objective : to convince you that piracy in space is inevitable, elusive and eternal. We will look at an incomplete list of methods of robbery and how to deal with threats to a pirate 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. This article will dispel a couple of myths and superficially studied engineering solutions that facilitate the life of a pirate. 3r33518.  3r33532. Original news inoTV.
3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. From his conversation with the leader it is well understood not only powerlessness in eliminating such a threat, but also powerlessness in the seemingly trivial task of calculating the trajectory of huge objects the size of “half a football field”. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. After analyzing data from 3 ground-based observatories that are able to find up to 276 near-earth objects, as reported by researchers, 3r33253. on site
Cornell University (New York), 3-333275. during the year [/u] each of them found less than 30%. Moreover, 50% of the detected objects have absolute magnitudes (absolute magnitude, i.e. luminosity) of more than 2? which corresponds to objects with an approximate diameter of less than 30 meters. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. To understand, the asteroids alone are groups of Appolo (approximately 54% of the total number of r3-33275. potentially 3r3-33276. of open near-earth objects) about 1?000. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Those. two observatories for the year, they saw less than 1% of already known bodies . 3r33518.  3r33532. By Detlef Koschny's assessment of , the head of the department of near-earth objects in the ESA Space Situational Awareness Department, the total number of near-earth objects with a diameter from 100 to 1000 meters can reach up to 3r3275. 43?000 [/u] . 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.
The Eye of Sauron [/b]
The author of the article, which inspired me to this post, claimed a world in which a certain system of satellites would be so all-seeing that it would record all objects in the solar system, up to space debris with a diameter of no more than 1 centimeter. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Not only records, but will track the trajectory of each grain of sand in real time and at the slightest deviation from the course to sound the alarm and raise land rats in the fighting stance. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. I will not say that such a system is impossible. On the contrary, we will look at how to do it. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33232. A little about the mechanics of celestial bodies
3r33518.  3r33532. Newtonian astromechanics is a discrete system of two points with arbitrary masses. I will not go into the subtleties of calculation by successive approximation, I can only say that on modern computers in real time this is a very easy task. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Why then did the astronomers of Neal Degrass fail to correctly calculate the trajectory? 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. This system is designed for quick rough calculation of the position of 2 bodies with mutual attraction. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. But in order to calculate the position of 3 bodies, it will be necessary per unit of time, frame by frame, to draw each body to each body. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. For 2 bodies, it is necessary to calculate attraction 2 times, for 3 bodies - 6 times, for 4 bodies - 12 times. 3r33518.  3r33532. Per unit of time it is necessary to complete (N-1) * N gravitations, where N is the number of bodies in the system. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. If there were only 1?000 objects in our system, we would have to do 9?99?000 calculations per frame - and this is on condition that we have Newtonian space! And our space can be distorted, despite the fact that we do not take into account gravitational tides, the solar wind, the shape of asteroids, luminosity and so on. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. For ?00?000 dead objects, ?00?00?00?000 operations per frame are needed. And the smaller the unit of time, the more accurate the result. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. It should be borne in mind that you can hardly guess how to parallelize these calculations - you need to produce them sequentially, using the results of previous calculations! 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. According to the author, all this is to protect the ships from debris that you can hardly meet. I believe that it is cheaper to hang sensors and armor on ships in order to avoid being hit. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. But the Eye of Sauron is there, and it works: several satellites revolve around the sun and burn every centimeter of the solar system, calculating every movement of the screw with incredibly powerful brains. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.
Hide in the refrigerator [/b]
Immediately, the author offers us an interesting solution: a black anti-reflective coating, refrigeration systems with forced surface cooling and engines: from low-temperature hydrogen to an accelerator mass. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. I choose the standard high-temperature engine and shunting any. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. How to get in the refrigerator on the trajectory of freight routes, if the Eye of Sauron sees a thermal trace from the jet of gas? 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. We will gain greater speed at the beginning of the path (pericenter or apocenter), then dive into the shadow of celestial bodies, entering stealth mode, or if not, dive into stealth at any remote point and use shunting engines as we move. , going to the right. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. The structure of shunting engines can be different: 3r3518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33411.  3r33532. 3r33434. Hydrogen can be used by releasing a cooled stream. 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. High-temperature can be reduced in size and produce a jet in small portions, separating them by time (like a jellyfish). 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. In the mass accelerator, use cooled bullets with a diameter of less than 1 cm. 3r-3323.  3r33532. 3r33434. 3r33518.  3r33532. And an excess of temperatures by means of forced gas cooling or heating of the radiator and radiant heat exchange should be sent directionally out of the system. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. If necessary, you can simulate the light of the stars on the surface of the apparatus, directing it towards the famous observatories. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.


3r33518.  3r33532. So you do not catch the goal, The Eye has seen you, and the lawyers are already harnessing horses to your soul. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532.
But you can still win [/b]
To pirate, not catching up with the goal: 3r3353518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33411.  3r33532. 3r33434. Set on the trajectory or throw in the direction of the flight path of the target mines remote triggering with shrapnel and demand cargo, bitcoins, ship or other. 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. Threatening to shoot in the direction of the ship, being on the course of the ship. 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. Damage the engine. 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. Come up with yourself. 3r33434.  3r33532. 3r33434. 3r33518.  3r33532. Since the main supply routes will be known, there is no difficulty in setting up an ambush. A high mass of ships with low maneuverability will make them vulnerable to various types of attacks. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.
If the lawyers fly to you, let them fly [/b]
It will take a long time before that. You take the ship - it will be more valuable than the load - and throw away the load in the direction of the cargo ship - there will be a surprise for the cops when they meet with their mad acceleration shrapnel from the goods. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. The larger the cloud of shrapnel, the harder it is for them to dodge, and if they do not lose their ardor, they will still have to catch up with the speed of shrapnel — when the cloud approaches, it will slow them down if they do not kill them. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Meanwhile, you can drag the ship (think how to hide it), or steal all the equipment, part of the fuel, and send the ship at full speed to the base of the cops - let them deal with it, not with you. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.

Dropping cal

3r33518.  3r33532. Did you win or did not go according to plan? It's time to get away. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532.
Spit Sauron in the eye [/b]
Take a “smoke bomb” or a bunch of sparkles with you and spray them around, or blow a huge “balloon” around the ship and then spit out your inflated balloon copies in all directions and pretend to be a ball - let the traps fly in all directions, imitating the maneuverability and weight of each other - the Eye will not guess which of a dozen, hundreds or thousands of traps need to chase the cops. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. And if there are a dozen of such pirates, and everyone will apply this trick? 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Approximately this principle is used to conceal nuclear warheads during a vertical dive. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Even if the lawyers as a result of catching one present, the trouble is not great - you will find a new partner. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33518.  3r33532.
The droid war is inevitable [/b]
Legalists will not burn a bunch of fuel, sending entire fleets in your direction, will not conduct guerrilla wars among asteroids with you, will not play cat and mouse, trying to catch up with a stealth ship, sharpened not by direct armed conflict, but by speed, maneuverability and stealth. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Especially since there are a lot of you and you all rushed to the placer. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Not. They will send droids for you! 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. If cargo ships are more expensive than cargo, if they are defenseless against pirates, and to send entire military fleets accompanied by expensive, there will be no cargo ships. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Now there will be an epoch of catapults. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. The cargo will be sent by special ships, withdrawing containers filled with explosives and cargo to the required trajectory, and at the end there will be receiving ships. Each container can fly through space for years while an endless flow of goods from one station to another is built. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Semi-automatic drones will be half-asleep on such trading threads, waking from suspicious signatures or if some drone has failed. These drones are cheaper, they are not sorry, and they are more effective than people. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. A drone patrolling a remote system boundary or stalking an intruder can do it for years, consume less fuel, be quicker and withstand a load above 20 g. And there may be hundreds of thousands and even hundreds of millions. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33518.  3r33532. Pirates will have nothing left but to steal the technology of drones and use for their dark deeds - the war of robots will begin, and it may be forever. 3r33518.  3r33532. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33528. 3r33532. 3r33532. 3r33525. ! function (e) {function t (t, n) {if (!
