Probably not. If the halves were dome-shaped, then gravity would try to shift it down into an orb, causing catastrophic events, landslides, etc. Everything would be pulled to the middle. Even if the ...

Hmm. A boat would have a curved upwards shape. As for avoiding depth . . . Avoiding predators. It requires gaseous O2 to survive (lungs, booklungs, or tracheae instead of gills) And the most ...

The Earth weighs $5.972\cdot10^{27}$ grams. One gram of antimatter equals $42.96 \cdot 4.184\cdot10^{12}$ Joules ($1.7974464 \cdot 10^{14}$ Joules.) $1.7974464 \cdot 10^{14} \cdot 5.972\cdot10^{27}$ ...

Use electrolysis, or some other form of splitting water (plants do this with chlorophyll and sunlight)--have the dragon have a specific organ (a fuel storage bladder), and then use the hydrogen gas as ...

According to this source, the energy needed to vaporize the human body (leaving skeleton) is 1.42 $\times$ 10$^8$ Joules, or the equivalent of 28 kg of TNT. The density of a human is 985 kg/m³. 75840 ...

You need to convert kinetic energy to heat energy (essentially creating a shock absorber.) Interestingly enough, your bones are pretty good at this already because of the collagen braids reinforced ...

Simply put, no. In a vacuum (space) there is no atmosphere. This means that, although the radiation dose would be higher, the blast (shockwave) would disappear, and the slugs wouldn't whip through ...

Some solutions: Use warped convex glass lens instead--ever fried a leaf with a magnifiying glass? If you used a lens large enough, it could set fire to something. As for timing: Quite early--types of ...

If there's gravity: Chemical weapons like poison gases would work. Energy guns that relied on low-level nervous system disrupting shocks might work as well. Perhaps some sort of kinetic-energy blast. ...

Freeze Earth's core! Now there's some radiation hitting us and the atmosphere is stripped away as our ozone is depleted ('cuz of the new anti-environmental laws pouring CFC's into the air) even more ...

Thank you for your feedback, everyone. I decided to combine all of this into a canonical answer as a community post to be fair. Karl Justice said: "I note that you said the bacteria ALL change ...

Use an aerogel. They're superlightweight (90% air) and very insulating. This is a Wikipedia article on aerogels. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerogel Cork is also good at insulating and natural. If ...

Use iron to make the star die. Iron is unique--when it's created, it begins the countdown to the star's death. With hydrogen, helium, lithium, etc., the star can still use nuclear fusion to create ...
