May I see the source that you are getting your information from? You again say it is difficult for ships to distribute heat, but I just gave you a source that shows that our current technology has several effective methods of shedding heat. Considering that this ship is presumably set in the future I'm sure they would have even more effective ways to release heat. Also, I do not consider infrared to be "light" as it is not visible to the human eye. If you want to go into stealth ships, the game Mass Effect has a great solution to this by having heat exchangers (a fully realized current technology) move all outside thermal energy towards a center heat sink, where all heat is stored until a safe place to dissipate it is found (I understand it is a game, but it uses sound logic). I am very much enjoying this discussion, but I don't think we should continue on this artist's comments section, would you mind continuing (sp?) this in a private message?
