Gregory3 commented on Sphere by LeeCareGene
January 4, 2016
Sphere
Gregory3 @LeeCareGene Yet there are other models on here that are even more spherical, and even those don't count as spheres.
Gregory3 @LeeCareGene Not exactly, the gravitational pull of other objects, including other black holes, can keep them from being spherical, and so can their rotation.
Gregory3 @LeeCareGene Not only cool, but as technology improves, new electron measuring machines could find electrons FAR more spherical than the current ones do, so this gives us more proof that electrons could be the only truly perfect spheres in existence, Interesting.
Gregory3 @LeeCareGene No real spheres possible, except for electrons, in which their shapes were measured in a 2011 report http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/05/110525131707.htm The human hair difference from the electrons being the size of Earth is most likely a result of the tiny imperfections of the machines used to measure them, no machine is perfect, but our brains are more close to perfect, so it's likely that electrons are the only perfect spheres in existence and nothing else.

Hilbert Curve
Gregory3 @gibell Actually 4.44 cm, you underestimated it by 0.04 cm.
Gregory3 @henryseg You mean 4.44 cm, 4.4 cm is 0.04 cm smaller than 4.44 cm

Cube Planet : Jupiter, 1inch
Gregory3 There is a hole on the bottom, which cubes don't even need, Since this is more of a cube, then no hole is needed because cubes don't roll off like spheres or spheroids.

Gregory3 There is a hole on the bottom which is not needed for a cube, Since it's more of a cube, then no hole is needed because cubes don't roll off like spheres or spheroids.

D1 Sphere Dice - one-sided dice
Gregory3 Not really a sphere, a flat base is on the bottom, Plus, it's a polyhedron, there are segments on it, made up of squares and triangles, not a sphere, no sphere is possible on computers, spheres are infinite shapes and if they ever have any sides, they would have infinity sides, and infinity is an impossible number that not even computers can calculate, yet the only "spheres" known in existence are electrons (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/05/110525131707.htm) thanks to technology, machines are so precise as to measure the behavior of electrons as well as their shapes and masses, so remember if you're looking for a sphere, then they're everywhere, in the form of electrons.
Earth Moon Mars to scale. 50mm / 2" globe
Gregory3 Did you know that the planets are bulged at their equators? They are, except for Mercury and Venus, The planets have an equatorial bulge, because of their rotation, Earth has one that's 0.34% of it's diameter, The Moon has one that's 0.1% of it's diameter, and Mars has one that's 0.6% of it's diameter, but those are insignificant and would fall within the resolution limit, but not for the gas giants, they have much bigger equatorial bulges, because they rotate much faster, Jupiter has a bulge that's 6.5% of it's diameter, Saturn has one that's an astounding 9.8% of it's diameter, close to 10%, Uranus on the other hand has one that's only 2.3% of it's diameter, and Neptune has one that's 1.7% of it's diameter, somewhat comparable to Uranus's, so now you know that the planets aren't entirely spherical, even with the exception of mountains, valleys and craters.
Replacement Part: Neptune and Uranus True-scale
Gregory3 Low poly, not enough triangles, the pictures show that the poly resolution is lower than that of the average planets in the store, Also, Uranus and Neptune, like the other planets, are oblate spheroids, Spheres that are squashed at the poles and bulged at the equators, Uranus is 2.3% Oblate and Neptune is 1.7% oblate, while Jupiter is 6.5% oblate, Saturn is 9.8% oblate, Earth is 0.34% oblate, The Moon is 0.1% oblate, and Mars is 0.6% oblate.
Saturn - separate planet for scale solar system
Gregory3 Not high poly enough, you can see the squares in the digital picture and they're way above the printing resolution. Also, again, just like Jupiter, This should be oval (bigger at it's equator), in fact, by 9.8%, based on NASA images and measurements.

Ceres
Gregory3 @Gioann You mean 50mm not 5mm.
True scale model Solar-System. Moons & all planets
Gregory3 They are awesome, but there's only one problem to fix, Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are not oval like they are in real life or in NASA photos, Earth is 43 km bigger at it's equator, making it 0.34% oval, Mars is about the same amount bigger at it's equator as well, making it about 0.6% oval, Jupiter should be 6.5% oval, Saturn should be 9.8% oval, making it the widest planet ever, Uranus should be 2.3% oval, and Neptune should be 1.7(close to 2)% oval, there's no way the planets other than Mercury and Venus could be equal at the poles and equator, Mercury and Venus are fine, but the others need improvement, but thanks for the hard work and time does pay off, thanks.
EndlessForms.com Object: 'Sphere'
Gregory3 This is what you might call a sphere, but a true sphere is by no means this, a sphere is a 3d object where the surface is equally distant from the center at all points, all points means an INFINITE amount of points, so therefore, a sphere is only a mathematic shape (except for the electrons, as measurements were reported in 2011 about their shape, and electrons are all one thing not made up of smaller things) not a physical shape, so therefore, a sphere, especially one that's made out of matter is impossible to make, CG spheres are made of triangles, they're polygons, and in the digital picture, you can see the triangles, which, again, indicates that all spheres other than electrons are impossible to have existing, even computers can't make spheres, this is technically a polyhedron. Also, you cal tell that it's not a sphere, it doesn't even look like one, it's low poly and shaped like a rotten fruit, but good try though.

Also, the bottom is so flat that it takes away so much of the spherical shape, it would be better if it came with a cap/plug to increase the sphericity, but good try though.

Yet the dent on the left also prevents this from being spherical, but good try though.
