Sci-ənce (pronounced “science”) is a comic about science, technology, skepticism, geekery, video games, and more. The plan is to make you laugh and make you think. Enjoy!

Yeah, I’m not too worried about aliens wanting our “natural resources.”
I *am* generally a bit concerned that either they’ll be a warlike race that can’t tolerate others being around or they’ll (rightly) see us as one and either way decide they better get rid of us before we can get rid of them. It’s not something we’ll likely have to deal with soon, though, and if we did have to deal with it, unlike what you see in sci-fi movies, we wouldn’t win at all, so there’s no point in worrying about it, though.
This reminds me of the so often called ‘reptilian ancestors’ that one to many nutshell believes in. Something about an alien race coming to earth to plunder our gold from which they harness energy.
Makes me always wonder about the same aspects as in the comic. They have the technology for long distance spacetravel and need the measly amounts of gold we have to power all their civilication? When they could do this long distance travel they are bound to have solved the energy-problems and then i think of systems like PHELIX. So they are also bound to (nearly) have mastered all aspects of heavy ion-technology. Which would mean they’d have a friggin’ philosopher’s stone!
So the whole “plundering earth for ressources”-point is realy nothing but humbug.
I just think it’s awesome that you made the Dyson Sphere look like a giant head.
It’s a literal Dyson Sphere. Modeled after Freeman Dyson. Did I not mention that? I didn’t mention that.
I got it! I’d recognize that schnoz anywhere. *NERD BADGE*
What if they do it out fun, since they have this incredible achievements of obtaining limitless energy, I would reckon that is a species with no concern for surviving even economy wouldnt be an issue, so they could dedicate themselves with leisure activities, and if they (or some of them) are bastards they could roam the universes just for the sake of being assholes to other species. Even if that were the case, worrying wont do a thing since we would be totally outmatched by them..
I don’t think any civilization could become that advanced without
outgrowing their warring phase (or biological phase for that matter. And
once you overcome that you overcome any vestigial destructive
impulse–but now I’m on a tangent writing fan-fiction).
Hey now, it’s not Hot Earl Grey, it’s “Earl grey, hot”.
I saw this coming and did nothing about it. #some men just want to watch the world burn
If you had the tech to completely surround your freaking STAR with a shell and harness all the energy it puts out, why couldn’t you just break the star down, and use its material to generate all the fusion power you wanted for billions of years WITHOUT having to build an ugly ass shell around your whole star? You can make smaller stars for light too.
It’s all about them earthly women.
