why was the zero so strong early in the war?                       @ 6:30 torpedo range vs gun range
how did the balance change so quickly (aug1942 wasn't so far in)    guns 3-4x longer

how are they conserving forces?                                     shells impact only at at one point at the end of an arc

WHAT ABOUT AN IMPENETRABLE PLANET
called a 'nugget'
underground
heavy planetary shielding

WHAT ARE ADVANTAGES TO LIVING ON PLANET?
     as opposed to a fortified worldship
higher population? easier to breed / find resources?
     agriculture?
     hydroponics... agriculture is easier... requires less resources?
agricultural cost is lower
atmosphere... solar power
     solar power would be greater in space though
nuclear power

I GUESS THE QUESTION I'M ASKING IS... once you're a spaceborne society, why
move back to planet living?
     planets are more vulnerable to attack
     not mobile
wide open spaces?
