Black Technology: Starting From the Space Jumping Machine - Chapter 190: pause
Chapter 190 Suspension
The three spaceships are slowly decelerating from the 50% light speed voyage. The interstellar voyage not only tests the strength of civilization, but deceleration is also a severe test.
Fortunately, human civilization has withstood the test, and now this small fleet is approaching the advancing base. Before that, the speed must be controlled to a safe speed range.
Otherwise, the forward base is shouldering the great mission of human beings in deep space today, and no accidents must be allowed to affect the safety of the base.
However, during the deceleration, the fleet can also not be idle.
Everyone seems to be dormant in the nutrition cabin, but they are actually conducting actual combat exercises through virtual reality.
A large number of spherical drones ejected out of the spaceship continuously, and they were controlled by officers to conduct various actual combat simulations.
“After the A1 team released the smoke, the avatars collectively exploded immediately, and then turned off the engine to maintain a radio silence state for 10 minutes. Although this will lose contact with us, it can also achieve the effect of confusing the blue army.”
“What the A2 team needs to do is to withstand three times the enemy’s firepower and lead them to the designated airspace within ten minutes, and wait for the A1 team to use a favorable shooting angle to hit the blue army hard in one fell swoop.”
“Yes! Execute plan C.”
As the team commander, Yang Weili gave orders again and again, and finally wiped out the drones of the other two spacecraft in the actual combat simulation.
Those electronically destroyed spherical drones will return to the spacecraft by themselves, otherwise, after the system reports death, they will be thrown off by the spacecraft without energy supply, turning into a piece of cold space junk.
“The record of the 37th space fighter combat training in deep space has been completed.”
As the victory of Yang Weili’s team was announced in virtual reality, the command rights of all officers were taken back by AI agreement.
Those who are willing to stay for review may naturally apply for permission, and those who are unwilling can also switch to other virtual scenes.
This small fleet can only be connected to the local area network, but there are definitely a lot of virtual reality games, learning materials, and video music.
After all, during these ten days, they can only experience it in virtual reality. In reality, because of the terrible load that acceleration and deceleration will bring to the body, they can only stay in the nutrition cabin most of the time, and are surrounded by everyone. Nicknamed [Deep Sea Mode]
“This time is the closest I’ve come to failure. I didn’t expect that the tactical effect would drop so much in the face of twice as many enemies?”
“This is just facing simulated enemies who are also humans. If it is… aliens, their thinking and combat habits are completely different. When I am the commander, I have to consider more complicated things. For…”
Yang Weili is seriously reviewing and reflecting.
Their group of trained officers originally focused on cultivating the elite for space combat, and after an astonishing elimination rate, only 200 remained. All of them can be described as the elite of the elite. Yang Weili’s ability to keep winning and undefeated for nearly 64 actual combat training games is an incredible thing in itself.
“Everyone’s improvement is obvious, and I haven’t improved in a long time.”
Yang Weili, who has a perfect score of 100, always wants to break through the limit to 101 points. This difficulty is no less difficult than going from 0 to 1, from scratch! In contrast, the improvement of other people is the progress that normal people should have.
Not to mention a genius commander who is still thinking about why he is stagnant. At this time, the external armor of the three spaceships has become potholed due to actual combat training, and they have completely lost the domineering power they had when they set off in the space city.
Instead, it looks like an unpretentious patrol spacecraft that has served for many years between the earth and the moon.
【The captain’s order: The Penglai will enter the final deceleration phase in half an hour. Please prepare accordingly】
Yang Weili, who had just finished the replay of the battle, heard the broadcast. Although he thought that he was in a dream, all the experiences were so real that he had to lament the power of virtual reality technology.
Just as Yang Weili wanted to close his eyes and rest, a new message popped up again.
Bona: “Why don’t we play games online with Taishan?”
Yang Weili “Still playing? It’s almost 2:30 am in the time zone where the space elevator is located.”
Bona: “It’s so late? No wonder I’m a little tired! Hmm. How about just playing a game?”
Yang Weili didn’t care about this guy who will be on vacation tomorrow, and set the anti-disturbance mode in the virtual reality personal interface, so that no one can disturb him except for urgent matters.
Switch the background to the sea of stars, and the whole thing seems to be suspended in this endless sea of stars.
In reality, the body is in the nutrition cabin, but the self-awareness can’t help but swim among the endless stars, gravity can no longer restrain the free soul at this moment.
Perhaps it was because Yang Weili was still a little excited after experiencing a close battle just now, and he would fall asleep naturally soon after floating in such an environment.
Stars, tonight seems to be unable to soothe my slowly restless mood.
Yang Weili let out a breath, and then opened the personal interface again.
“Connect to host.”
【Major Yang, is there anything I can do for you? 】
“External viewfinder attached, oriented to asteroid belt.”
【Completed, it will be displayed on your personal interface in five seconds. 】
The sea of stars in front of me suddenly changed, and thousands of asteroids of different sizes appeared in front of me.
In the viewfinder, you can see them spreading from the deep space of the universe, drawing an arc in front of the Penglai, and then disappearing into the deep space.
They are remnants of the distant formation epoch of the solar system—the asteroid belt between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars. In this circle around the solar system there are inexhaustible reserves of minerals and elements that are either scarce or overexploited on Earth.
After the moon, this place will become the next promised land where milk and honey flow in the human space industry!
The current destination of their fleet—the asteroid belt A1 mining area is an asteroid belt mining area constructed with the dwarf planet Ceres as the core area radiating nearly 100,000 kilometers to the left and right.
It is the highest achievement of the fusion of human science and technology – advance base!
After more than ten days of sailing, the three spaceships are finally about to arrive here.
Next, they will rest for a period of time before heading to the more distant deep space.
The Great Wall base that is still under construction is waiting for them, and the Oort Nebula is also waiting for them.
At this moment, Yang Weili didn’t want to think too much, he just wanted to appreciate the appearance of the pinnacle of human technology.
In this area that has become an asteroid mining area, a large number of small spaceships and robots are dispatched to different asteroids according to their functions and start their own work.
They first constructed the collection bases, and these collection bases will be responsible for the supply of raw materials for all future construction projects of the advance base.
After the collection base, there is the preliminary forging factory.
These factories will conduct preliminary processing for the minerals mined at the collection base for later use.
After the forging factory, it is the construction of the robot casting factory and various parts production factories. Due to the limitation of the tonnage and volume of the spacecraft, it is impossible to carry too many robots on the transport spacecraft. Therefore, the construction of robot casting factories on important asteroids is also very necessary.
Parts factories include various precision instrument foundries, etc.
In addition to these raw material production ends, the core is the huge space dock next to Ceres. It undertakes the construction of new spacecraft, turning a series of materials into tools for human beings to extend into deep space.
The production speed of spaceships in this shipyard has far exceeded that of LaGrand Space City, and this is the productivity that truly represents the pinnacle of human technology.
Under the control of the huge computing power provided by the quantum computer, all complicated things are carried out in an orderly manner, allowing Yang Weili to see the beauty of the orderly space industry
The collection base continuously outputs nutrients and supplies them to various factories. The gathering place at the production end of the asteroid has become the heart of the entire space industry, and these hearts are exporting a large amount of fresh labor every moment to supplement various organs.
These nutrients continue to gather, and a brand new spaceship will soon be manufactured, and then immediately head to deep space!
Of course… These spaceships are not as large in tonnage and volume as the three warships. Most of them are transport spaceships, helping to transport the materials from the asteroid belt to the Great Wall base ahead.
At this moment, Yang Weili couldn’t help stretching his vision.
When the entire solar system was under his overlooking, a magnificent picture appeared in front of him.
Starting from the blue star, if the stars of the constantly shuttling spaceship engine lights are connected, it seems to be a straight line connecting the blue star and the advancing base.
The advance base also has such an optical path connected by spaceships, connecting to the Great Wall base in deep space.
Each of their distances is hundreds of times longer than the previous Silk Road, and every location they connect is tens of millions of times longer than the distance traveled around the world.
Compared with the distance in the starry sky, all the long-distance expeditions of human beings before will be eclipsed.
At this moment, Yang Weili was filled with pride.
Because he will represent mankind to march towards the Oort Nebula, which is a mysterious place that humans have not yet set foot in.
Although it may become a battlefield between two civilizations in the future, and even though it may become the burial ground of many human beings in the future, at this moment it is a place that will be conquered by human beings. Yang Weili can participate in such an action, and once again feels deeply proud.
With such emotions, looking at the forward base in front of him, the admiration can no longer be contained.
“I heard that the initial construction of this base was basically completed by a group of military officers and scientists who voluntarily signed up.”
“And now, they went to the Great Wall Base without hesitation.”
“….. Human civilization is destined to shine in the universe with such a pioneer!”
Yang Weili silently strengthened a certain belief in his heart.
At the same time, thousands of miles away in Blue Star, an extremely important meeting was held.
“The Great Space Wall project, doesn’t it seem risky?”
“At that time, we didn’t even have a LaGrand space city, and we didn’t even have a few large-scale automated factories. Let alone antimatter, we didn’t even understand the grand unification theory.”
“But we still gritted our teeth and implemented it. For this reason, we did not hesitate to split the No. 0 base, and transported a large amount of talents and materials to the deep space construction like a bottomless pit.”
“All the hard work, all the hard work, finally got a breather in the crisis of the overthrow of civilization today. Everyone has become conservative and optimistic about the implementation of the next plan?”
At the meeting, without Lu Yu opening his mouth, Professor Han beside him stood up first.
As the successor of Professor Mao, he took over Base Zero, how much energy and painstaking effort he has consumed over the years.
Today’s No. 0 base is no longer the transit base for contacting Lu Yu!
Has been semi-public, it is the most cutting-edge scientific research center in the world, and a legendary place where the latest scientific and technological achievements of mankind burst out one after another.
The industries involved in Base No. 0 alone have already managed a million people. This place is already comparable to a large city, and it is also a big city of science and technology.
There was once a legend.
A signal tower had just been built on the periphery of Base Zero, and it had to be announced that it would be demolished at the celebration banquet the next day.
Because in the base’s research institute, another mature and transformative result was obtained.
The specifications of this signal tower are destined to be behind the times.
Base Zero is developing at such a speed that Professor Han has to spend all his energy in managing it. Just like a car speeding at high speed, the driver must be more careful, otherwise a slight negligence will result in a car crash and death.
But the status of No. 0 base is there. When Professor Han speaks on behalf of No. 0 base, the weight is naturally not weaker than that of any one present.
“Professor Mao has resigned from the position of the forward base, but he did not choose to return to Blue Star, but applied to continue to preside over the construction of the Great Wall base.”
“Together with my old partner, there are also all the starters of the advance base. Some of them haven’t been back to Blue Star for five years.”
“They have worked so hard, but they still can’t forget the original mission, to defend the solar system for mankind! And now everyone hasn’t even figured out the situation of the unknown fleet, so they are thinking about opening champagne at halftime?”
Professor Han also noticed that many people were fascinated by the simulation plan proposed by the forward base. The purpose of the construction of the Great Space Wall was to stop the unknown fleet and entrust the future to the terrifying development speed of human beings.
There is nothing wrong with this. Blind optimism about the situation may just be an inflated confidence.
But you must know that this time the strategy determines the future of mankind. If a wrong decision is made at this moment, it will lead to the demise of human civilization.
Then anyone at this moment will be a sinner!
Professor Han’s words may be quite harsh, making many people’s virtual reality images stiff.
“I propose to suspend this strategy seminar first!”
“What human beings should do for a period of time in the future should not be decided by us, but by those who work on the front line in deep space!”
This proposal made everyone stunned for a moment, and then everyone had to cheer up, because Lu Yu silently raised his hand.
He agreed to Professor Han’s proposal!
