comment What exactly is the composition of radiation in interplanetary space?
I only skimmed the article, but my question was about intensities/dosage in different types and spectra of radiation. That does not seem to be in the article.

comment What happens to the physics when you scale-up a water and air bubble in zero-gravity to gigantic size?
Sounds like an astronomy question about water giants. More seriously, with a planet-sized anything mad of liquid water you no longer have zero-g.

comment Can we 'see' the Kolmogorv microscale
flow is no numbers game, it's a mechanical thing with mechanical effects. Obviously we both don't know, but I don't think your analogy holds.

comment Can we 'see' the Kolmogorv microscale
But I would not need to isolate a particular eddy - I'd just need to be sure that there's no eddy smaller than x. Would this not be possible by looking at the shearing of droplets, diffusive mixing or co-moving suspended particles?

I'm not 100% sure what you tried to test, I appreciate the effort in answering my question and I'll think about your answer some more

comment Can we 'see' the Kolmogorv microscale
I've only skimmed the paper to see the figures you mentioned. They show a vorticity contour plot, isn't the vorticity 'simply' the rotation at a given location? Does this tell us anything about the size of the eddy?

tangential question: Suppose you use a vacuum and a hydralisk model (there exists such a thing, right?), how would the scaling work?

comment How to estimate the Kolmogorov length scale
1) I changed the syntax so the numbers are more readable, please check if still correct, 2) as @BrandonEnright said, this does not answer the question as to how to arrive there.

Ping! Did you get around to do your tests? I'd greatly appreciate if you can expand your answer
