Learning how to approach women, strike up a conversation and charming them into being interested in going on a date with you is a difficult – but important – skill to master.
Of course, if you wanted to see farther, you’d need a much larger telescope array.
Anyone who reads my site for long enough knows I’m a big proponent of the cold approach.
If the angle between two distant points is θ, the light in question has a wavelength of λ, and the size of your telescope is D across, then the smallest resolvable angle is approximately .
What’s a little weird is that this D isn’t just limited to the size of the mirror or lens of a single telescope.
“Resolving power” is a measure of the smallest angle that the telescope can reliably detect.
Telephoto lenses need to be large because the amount of light that bounces off of a distant object and that then goes through the lens is fairly small. They need to be long for other, more subtle, reasons.By combining information from all of these radio-telescopes together they behave like one very large telescope that is effectively 36km across (the dishes are mobile and can be separated by at most 36 km).Coincidentally, something that’s a large distance L away, and that’s a size S across, takes up an angle of approximately .This is one of the reasons why social calibration is one of the most important parts of getting better at dating; recognizing the times when it is and appropriate to approach women is vital – not just to your dating success but to avoiding being creepy by accident.One of the keys to social calibration is understanding the cues and context that tell you when a woman is open to being approached and when she isn’t.Spotting dudes and ladies on one of these worlds requires, at minimum, a telescope array that’s at least 100 million km across.
