For starters, you drip some red ink into the ocean, the first few drops are going to disperse quickly, but as the concentration of red ink gets higher and higher, assuming you get a whole tank of red ink(I am not asking you to pollute the ocean) essentially a small region of the sea would turn red and it would not disperse very fast.



this is adorable and something i'd say in 4th grade but heres the thing

oceans water has mass and is made of particles. the red dye has to fight through those particles to disperse. we dont really think about that because of course molecules are tiny and we dont see this, but it happens

space is a vacuum. theres nothing for the air to fight through so it will almost instantly disperse out.

our bodies are held together by electromagnetic bonds, but the water and air in our cells are made of isnt, so the water will literally boil out of our bodies until we are dried up husks of flesh floating in space.

but still this is cute


Well adding air in vacuum is like adding oil to water. The only difference is when you release it in space due to pressure, the air particle is flying off at whichever velocity it is released


P.S Vacuum isn't a black hole you know

If we cant even figure out whats at the bottom of the ocean, then we definitely arent ready for space.

Actually, even having a balloon in space is pretty inefficient, to get the ocean to split, you can create a strong electric field to repel the water. Think of rubbing a balloon to create static electricity, and bring it close to the water source to see it bend

P.S My bad it attracts, sooner or later people is going to get to the bottom of the ocean with this, I hope

P.S Even then if you use electric field to attract air you still need a reliable source for it if you are thinking of terraforming a place

If the ideal gas laws are correct, we'd be fucked if we tried doing this.

Obviously they aren't really suited for these kinds of non-ideal problems, but I still don't think it'd work out too well.

Vigorous rubbing, obviously.

Why doesn't earth freeze? Because of water, water keep us warm at night and keep us cool in the morning. All you need is water

There are places in space that are just fluid, but they are really cold. There are parts of space that is filled with alcohol.



Ya, you need to be somewhere where the sunlight can reach you :D, water+sunlight(heat), correction

Yes, you will need sunlight. You are really smart. You will also need to be in geosynchronous orbit of a star.



Not necessarily, you could face sunlight 24/7 , or have a heater

How? Being in geosynchronous orbit would be an easy way to do it and it's already an idea that works.



Well, I really have not gotten into the details lol, as you can see you need a constant source of air around the planet and it's easier to hold the air with gravity then with an electric field because it might break, and that's not a risk we can take for terra forming. Best be built as a feature for spaceship, that way you won't have to worry about vacuum, that is my original intention
