    Totally. There is such a thing as too crazy though. Think on that the next time you are dressed in an SGC costume making beep beep noises.

    It's at times like this i wish i had paid attention to what my mother told me when i was young.

    Well, not something I would normally do (the beep noises) but, when you have a person that sits by you and endlessly talks loudly on a cell phone......

    I hope this helps. I measured the SGC gate and the Atlantis gates when i was on set.
    If you hadn't measured it in person I wouldn't have believed it was that big.

    Intuitively I'd have said about ten feet internally but on closer inspection, using images such as this (first I found when looking), Ben Browder is 6'1", making it APPEAR 13-14 feet at absolute most. Weird.

    Well, as a very quick test, you say he's 6'1".
    Taking a line from the BOTTOM of the gate to the top(Which we cannot see in that image, he fits at least three times(But he's not fully at the event horizon, and there is perspective involved).

    Which puts the outer edges at c18ft and inner edge at c.14ft, as I suggested...?

    As for perspective, look where his right foot is: he's only inches from the event horizon.

    Nope, not a replica make, I just wanted to make my FQ-352 Gate-compatible.

    As I said earlier, if it hadn't been physically measured by you guys (which I'm not doubting), I wouldn't have believed it. The perspective thing is totally doing my head.

    if you want further proof look ata puddle jumper. 16 ft diameter and it barely gets through the gate. look @ 38 minutes the drivepods were barely out and the jumper got stuck.

    Thank you! I made up a great honors geometry problem for my students with this information!

    I am curious too but not to make a replica that is life size but for work in my homage story universe. How thick is the gate?
