i don't think its a serious reply. even if it is does it matter? his response took like 4 seconds i bet. maybe 2 minutes depending on how well organized his meme-folder is.

thalassophobia is much more a fear of what could be down there. Films like meglodon and maybe jaws to an extent play on this phobia. It rarely provokes terror, more deep slightly scared interest I guess.

I suppose thalassaphobia is moreso the fear of the open ocean rather than, say, the fear of even being near coastlines or on the beach. Like the same goes for me, I could never realistically be on a sailboat- a cruise is fine because you're about 100 feet minimally in the air and there're guardrails, but an actual boat...nada.
Also, I'm cool with a small lake or river or creek/stream/etc. But someone with hydrophobia probably can't even stand that.

Isn't that just another word for hydrophobia though?
I mean, why else would you be afraid of water unless it's the open water. I don't exactly see a bottle of water giving someone PTSD or a water fountain causing depression.
But maybe that's just me.

Hydrophobia isn't a term generally used with people. It's a scientific term which applies to chemistry and biology. Many substances can be defined as being hydrophilic or hydrophobic depending on how they interact with water.

Hydrophobia is the fear of water, thalassophobia is the fear of large bodies of water.

It largely includes the fear of what's possibly in the water, and the fact you can't really see what's below you.

I'm sure that scientist were just like "didn't we already use 'hydrophobic' for things that don't dissolve or necessarily attract water?" and then everyone else was like "Pfffft fine,we'llcallthis newly categorized fear something else, like.... uh, thatassophobia"

I'm just looking at the linguistics of "thalassaphobia", not trying to figure out if it's a real thing, or distinct from hydrophobia lol.

There is no air resistance in space so as long as the ship accelerates, there is no maximum speed other than the hard limit of the speed of light.
Keeping up the speed requires no energy and the speed limit is the speed of light

In the second half you only have ships that surpass the speed of light, but since this is impossible, it has to be done through some tricks, like folding the universe, like in star trek (sounds mad, but it's possible in theory. In practice we simply don't know how to achieve it, though). However, it costs energy to keep this up because of the second law of thermodynamics. The universe tends to dissipate energy until it's evenly spread all around, much like that you have to keep heating a cup or else it cools down to room temperature, but the room as a whole is slightly warmer.
Keeping up the speed does require energy and the speed limit depends on the machine keeping up the warp field.

No idea. The first half of this chart isn't very informative.
