Yet you're still mining it, I notice.

Could he be trying to get it to explode?

What gets my attention is the sloppy photoshop to hide his location; he nicked a bit off the distance bar.

big deal
the important info was the temperature. not the location. you want to see it? go find it.

Oh, I understand that totally, it's just that since I dabble in digital imaging, I tend to notice these things... and point them out and make fun of them.

i thought mining beams coudl only reach 100m his distance is clearley 143n

Something became odd about it with the last update; distance shown seems to be now to the center of the roid, not the surface, so you can be resting on it and the distance meter won't read 0.

The heating of roids is a very interesting topic indeed. I once set out to caculate the caloric capacity of them, only to be stopped short in my tracks at the very beginning because I had no way to calculate their density (woe is me). Suggestions for said procedure can be forwarded to me, I still intend to finish that project.

Not to mention that the temperature of 23678.6 K is 10 times larger than the highest temperature known materials can withstand. Those roids would be white-hot mini-suns. Hey, now that's an idea.

Heh, it is about 10000 K now... I mined today in the same sector and BUNNY missilespammed me, because she thought that I boiled that roid. Actually there is an agreement between players not to heat roids to >100 K in Helios

bunny just misslespam's you cause bunny wants to, there is no real reason behind it. if you are in the same sector as bunny, she kills you.

Unless you happen to be me. Then you kill her first.

BUNNY is the only non-n00b I've ever killed... It's amazing how perfectly Yellowjackets work against her.
