No offense, but that is a repetition of what I already said. Destroying Jeru is out of the question, but capturing it instead is suicidal without the proper arms and equipment. Namely, warships. Both of those are essential to "Waging war against Ladder", as Batousai suggested. Neither of those are an option unless you turn Mars into a giant war factory overnight without anyone noticing, a gigantic feat in itself. It's just that simple.MrFaber wrote:They would never blow up Jeru, that would completely destroy the whole orbital lift and scrapyard would be crushed as well by the fall of salem. And not mentioning that, on Jeru, the Onion Frame, Leviata 1 and so on live a huge lot of people that they would define "innocent".
A political scandal involving Mbadi and some piddling ZOT tournament would hardly put Ladder on thin ice. Like the UN, they're too big and too well-established for one man's actions to topple them. It wouldn't be enough to incite war, either... the governments of Sol are only concerned with truly large-scale fiascoes involving weapons of mass destruction/natural resources/asteroid belt squatters making babies/terrorist attacks and organized subversive elements/et cetera. Assassination and corruption schemes involving mere peasantry aren't enough to merit more than a slap on the wrist.MrFaber wrote:The only way tu put down Ladder is throught a political scandal, as the one Alita just menaced to keep the ZOT running. But then there would probably be a second Terraforming War, being Ladder the fulcrum of balance among solar sistems forces.
Yeah, Space City Binhar and its accompanying gateway city Nezher. If you pierce Earth axially along Kansas city to find the location of Nezher, you soon discover that Nezher is over the middle of the Indian Ocean, about two thousand miles south of Sri Lanka. At about five hundred miles distant, the tiny Saint-Paul and Amsterdam islands are the closest landmasses.MrFaber wrote:Changing subject just for a moment... In one casual scheme lost deep in the early pages of LO, they show a scheme of the whole orbital lift, which is a ring around the planet, with actually TWO orbital lifts, to keep the balance, so, on the other side of earth there is another Starcity, another Salem, and another Jeru. I wonder if we will ever know anything about them or just Kishiro will forget to have ever dranw that scheme.
The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri. About 240 miles East of Kansas. Was Vilma's body transported there, or was Star City really built on St. Louis rather than Kansas? The mystery deepens.MrFaber wrote:I must admit ignorance, but i don't know if the ark on wich Vilma and Victor fought is a really existing building, so i don't know how to identify Starcity ad Kansas City.
Both of those cities are about 38-39 degrees north of the equator. Both of them are on the same axis as the Indian Ocean.MrFaber wrote:but i think that both the lifts must be on the equator line, to turn with earth revolution, or on poles, to align with the axis, but the first hypotesis sounds better, the rings stays up balancing gravity and (i don't know the english word, the force you produce spinning), so it has tu spin with the planet.
