comment What do ants see?
Wow, I haven't been called stupid in so many interesting ways in quite a while. I apologize if the question was esoteric enough for you, I'll try and do better next time, but it was about physics, it wasn't about programming, for instance, so I'm not sure what your gripe is. If you thought so little of the question, why not vote it down and not answer it? Also, I didn't "propose" that one could see atoms, I asked, and it theoretical, not practical, but assuming perfect resolution, then, and using visible light, what would the world "look" like at that scale?

comment Can you use a laser to measure the speed of light with a rotating mirror?
Get a stopwatch, a laser, and a mirror (a laser pointer will be fine). Stand back from the mirror and at the same exact time, hit the stopwatch and the laser pointer. The moment you see the laser in the mirror, hit the stopwatch again.

comment Max rocket speed in interstellar space?
@ghoppe, And at relativistic speeds, tiny particles become like atomic bombs.

@BBlake, if it can't be proved wrong today, how can you put a time-frame on when it will happen?
