RE: Design of Glass as a Walking Surface

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'd say you are correct, when Sulu was lowering it from the Huey, it
looked thicker than 1"...

What's funny is that Scotty said "what if I could give you the same
thing, only 1" thick"

SEE, even in the distant future they haven't entirely switched to the
metric system. The best scene in that movie is when Scotty is talking
into the mouse at the computer.

An even funnier Sci-Fi flick is Spaceballs.

Gerard,

        As I recall, it was polymer, 6" thick, which could have been
replaced by 1" thickness of transparent aluminum; but I didn't check out
the
calcs for the thickness myself so I can't stamp the design.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson.
