      Believe it or not. I like it. Not good for a young audience but a cool thing.

        Leave out the porn. Say it was developed for species without eyes. Then, say the porn applications are what made him rich.

      Iím going about this all wrong when it comes to asking what idea I want. Iím looking for a science thing that my scientist could study. On Steven Jackson games forum, someone suggested the migration patterns of Purgills. It would have been perfect except for the fact that it might lead someone to Ezra and Thrawn. That story will be told in the future. I want something unique but also a science that my scientist can study as his main work. Not an invention.

        Basic physics will always be there. Right now, Dark Energy is probably the most mysterious thing there is.

          Someone on writingforums.org knocked some sense into me. The Star Wars galaxy has had 1,000ís of years to develop stuff so all science left to do is theoretical or observational. Iím going to have him study asteroids. Thanks for putting up with me.

            Iím thinking about doing something related to Hyperspace. What science can my scientist study about Hyperspace before heís called away to deal with the supermassive black hole?

                    I asked John Jackson Miller himself what he could be working on and he said something to do with improving navicomputers. That meshes well on what Iím looking for as I want him to do something related to Hyperspace and navicomputers are used to make Hyperspace jumps. What could the scientist be working on in order to make navicomputers better or more efficient?

                      A dynamic model of gravitational space-time warping instead of the standard static one.

                        What does that mean?

                          When we look at the curvature of space time, we make the assumption that we are looking at a static snapshot of the universe and make our calculations based upon the magnitude and locations of the masses of the universe at that specific snapshot in time. However, all the objects are actually moving and any calculations that do not take that movement into account could be slightly off. Moving masses emit gravitational waves that ripple through the universe. Our current calculations assume the waves are negligible which is probably 99.9999% accurate unless we need to consider things like stellar collisions (or things bigger than that like neutron star collisions, black hole collisions, black holes colliding with a star, etc.).

                        Everything is in flow/moves ... also the stars in relation to each other

                          Am I posting into a vacuum here?

                          That would even make it logical that your scientist would be called upon to deal with a gigantic back hole.

                        I decided that Iím going to have my scientist study an astrological body BUT itís something that we havenít identified in the real world. Iím no good at physics so I donít know what kind of new astrological body I can make up. Does anybody have ideas for a fictional celestial body? Like something in the class of a quasar or a pulsar or a black hole
