Periodic Table: 14 Silicon

First | Previous | 2015-07-22 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex presents The Periodic Table:
T-Rex: 14. SILICON
T-Rex: A crystalline semiconductor which, like water, is denser in liquid form than as a solid.
Utahraptor: So there could be a planet with silicon icebergs.
Utahraptor: In a liquid silicon ocean!
T-Rex: Yeah! And we could ride a ship on it!
T-Rex: I'm the king of the world!
T-Rex: At least I won't freeze to death.

The author writes:

The weird thing is that the least realistic part of this comic is the bit about riding a ship.
