NASA Veteran's Propellantless Propulsion Drive

Physics Says this shouldn't work but has just produced enough thrust to overcome Earths gravity.

So the reverse engineering of the Roswell craft is finally starting to show benefits.

My son uses similar technology to navigate satellites to the correct orbit once they are in space. I am not familiar with it, but he mentioned "ionization" and the use of half a litre of "fuel" and the key of the whole mechanism is the exhaust pipe that needs to be calibrated to 1-milionth of a mm (exaggeration). When he is happy with the plume, the satellite is ready.

Before this, they were using rockets that were very heavy.

I will send him the link.

Re: NASA Veteran's Propellantless Propulsion Drive

Intriguing, if it works. Most of the expense of space travel is escaping Earth's gravity, which is why launching from the Moon would be relatively cheap if only we could. Most of the expense in any space project is the startup costs; several writers such as Clarke believed that if that could be overcome, you'd be in business (e.g. in Imperial Earth, Malcolm Makenzie - not a misspelling, a computer error he tried and failed to get corrected - had an initial scheme to mine Titan's hydrogen-rich atmosphere which was enormously expensive...but, 20 years later, enormously profitable).
So it will be, it's believed, with any real project. But this does sound interesting, especially as it's a no-fuel drive.

If memory serves me correct it current costs about $1,000,000 a kilogram to sent something into space.


That's why we need water/ice of Mars or the Moon.
