The purple haro belongs to the red haired girl now(forget her name shes hot to howd i forget grah x.x) and they took the information out of that to make the Throne Gundams sadly they couldn't make the uber gn particles hahah xD

Her name's Nena Trinity.

Is there some official source that talks about the history and workings of the GN Drives (original and false solar furnaces)?

Yeah, the "Gundam 00 Official File No" publications.

Because it does not have the Blanket the generator lets the energy out. So the Tau runs out like a battery..
Hmmm, so what charges the GN Tau Drives? The energy they get from the solar elevators?

I do not know. I think they got the tech from Harvey. In one of the later eps you can see them charging the drives.

I think there was a mis-translation on the subs. I don't think it's 'charge.' Like any reactor, which the GN Drives are, they require fuel. You would not electrically charge an electrical generator, otherwise it's not a generator, its a capacitor / battery.

To answer your question, what information we have been given on the GN Drives, states that they "harnesses the photon and positron discharge of the non-evaporative decay of baryonic matter as an energy source." GN Particles are a byproduct of this process. Basically, they're taking the photonic and positronic (anti-matter) product of a rapid nuclear decay (This isn't fission or fusion, Cox, it's the natural breakdown of the atomic particles) and turning it into electrical power while producing GN Particles... Atleast as close as I can tell.

So they likely have to 'refuel' the drives with some 'un-specified' baryonic matter (which could be anything from deuterium(heavy water), to some sort of super condensed gas). The TD Blanket though, appears to do a number of things, least of which includes making the GN Particle byproducts safe. But as the TD Blankets are the defining feature of the genuine drives, and they don't require refueling that we know of, it appears to loop the reactant materials in the reactor for an infinite fuel source.

Now that's what I call an expanation! It's advanced writing that shows the physics and I can understand it completely.

The GN Drive Tau needs a recharge of somesort (electricity or whatever) because it keeps losing GN Particle Output the longer it's in operation like Johann Trinity said in ep. 22....or was that mistranslated too?

It's either mistranslated in the subs, or misused originally, kinda, sorta. Maybe the Japannese don't have a proper word for whatever process they have envisioned for injecting the fuel into the GN Cores? English has an appropriate word, but if we look at the dictionary definition of 'Charge' it has a relevant conotation aswell. A few of the relevant meanings are listed below for 'Charge' from dictionary.com.

Quote:
to fill or furnish (a thing) with the quantity, as of powder or fuel, that it is fitted to receive: to charge a musket.
Quote:
to put a load or burden on or in.
I suppose I just said it was a mistranslation, that's not entirely accurate, but what I was getting at is the common interpetation of the word 'charge' is typically tied to 'electrical' charges, which I see alot of people online assuming. That's not the case here, because electrical charging doesn't match what we have been told about the drives.

But on the subject of Nena and Johann's dialogue in Episode 22. They're talking about remaining particles, as if the Tau Drives are big GN Particle Storage Devices. That doesn't jive with what Ian said about the Tau Drives in Episode 18. He said that they function just like a normal drive, meaning they 'produce' their GN Particles. It isn't that what they were saying was even inaccurate, from a phsyics standpoint they should be able to measure the potential output of a set amount of fuel.

Say you have X amount of Baryonic Matter (GN Fuel), we'll say 5 litters in your drive, so they likely know how much 'nuclear decay' or what not that amount of matter is equivalent to in GN Particle production, so they know they'll get fifty billion particles (hypothetically speak, just using that number as an example) out of it? See what I'm gettin at?

Celestial Being has always been the protagonists in the literary sense.

A Protagonist is simply the character or group of a story on whom the story has a much greater focus on, and the Antagonists oppose them. This is different from being a hero or villain, which are the terms you're looking for. While Celestial Being are the protagonists of 00's story, they are hardly purely heroic, and the power blocs may be the antagonists, but they're hardly purely evil. Thus far there is no such thing as a "Dark Side" or other such evil in 00.

^ Yea, the only "evil" character in 00 so far is probably Alejandro Corner.

Don't forget Ali Al Sharsez and Patrick Coralsawr (I know Patrick is harmless, but he's really pissing me off!)! Those guys are seriously evil dudes!

There's a spoiler floating around ***NOT** related to 00, but colossally important to the Gundam Universe. I NEED confirmation on this one, help me out

Spoiler:


Yes/No/Maybe?

Might want to fix your tags there.

EDIT: There you go.

Apparently he survived the accident and was laying low until Casval went MIA

That's probably not true either. From what information we have about the Arrows, perhaps having someone like Alejandro actually lead would be better for the world.

Damn, that's really retarded. That Char doesn't even have the same charm as Casval. Not as cunning and not as hardcore.

Why would he even want to start a second movement for Neo Zeon? If I were him, I'd hate Casval.
