Vacuum cooling In mk2?


Recommended Posts

So now that we can go to space. What do you think we'll be able to do next? Vacuum cooling of water? Shove water to a vacuum of space, wait a bit lose a bit of mass and you get -50C water! Thermal radiation maybe?

Maybe running radiant pipes in unisolated vacuum as a heatsink? Comet trails with geysers on surface? I hope we get cosmic mk2, this is insane!

Designing shielding would probably be very important too because of those pesky meteor strikes.

if you want to cool your solar panels, run cold water/gas pipes through the base of the panel, because it is solid

Did you try that ?

(My tests have shown, that solar panels just interact with gas or liquid in the same tile)

we got infinite source of cold at last. And we can destroy unwanted gases and liquids too. This is a big change

How is it infinite and why you don't consider wheezeworts infinite?

I don't follow your question.  We can produce a gas (hydrogen with the electrolyzer).  Pump it into a room with radiant piping call it the heat change room.  You will be dropping heat into that gas.  When it is no longer taking heat from the contents of the pipes/ducts, we expel it to space.  If you have an automation setup, you can have room one with a half dozen worts cooling gas.  When it gets down to -60, open the heat exchange room to space until pressure is zero.  Then close that room and open the space between the heat exchange room and the pre cooling room.  You should be able to darn near freeze your base.

There are no new possibilities, just new ways to achiev things.

(There are so many ways to cook/freeze your base right now and if you wanted to do something like that you could delete gas/liquid using just 2 doors)

Well, you could annihilate gases and liquids with the "double door remover" already, but it could be called an exploit, so it is nice to have a regular mechanism for that.

If you want to, you CAN use every gas/liquid in some way and delete it.
