Why is it that in fiction, especially Sci Fi, and the future, there doesn’t appear to be any OSHA? No standards of safety whatsoever?
In that big, weird facility that Quigon fought Maul in Episode 1, there were no guard rails at all over a big gaping hole in the ground. No guard rails on on all of those bridge thingies, not a thing. And it’s not limited to Naboo! There were no guard rails in the Empire either, both Death Stars were built without guard rails if I remember correctly. And the EU is even worse.
Apparently George Lucas also designed Nero’s ship in the new Star Trek, because there are no guard rails to be found there, either.
And that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Guard rails and OSHA seem to be uniquely 20th century inventions. Perhaps we should leave them behind.
Also, if a 1cm droplet of Redmatter could make a black hole large enough to stop a supernova, and the same size droplets can be used to envelop planets… Why’d they create what is apparently a 2 meter ball of the stuff?!
What could anyone possibly want/need with enough redmatter to turn every celestial body in a spiral arm of the galaxy into a black hole?!
