Re: EMC2 news

I wonder if they shouldn't drop calling it F1, or they will spend all their money on a legal battle with FIA which probably has the acronym as a trademark for Formula One.

well, think about it, they probably had a problem with people thinking they were makers of those ultraviolet lights for nightclubs

Re: Mach Effect progress

any news from GIT and the company he was starting to fund ME Thruster research?

or did he called the investors as imbeciles for having doubts about the concept?

Re: Mach Effect progress

I don´t think the technical paper panels were filmed. The convention was pretty big, but only talks in the main auditorium seem to have been filmed.

Tom Ligon, I am sure that you already heard about the Skylon Spaceplane, right?

Re: Another Space Elevator Design

oh, I did not read about the 100km tall one. such a structure would need to reduce $/kg by a HUGE margin to be worth it. However, unlike the space elevator (real one, that goes past geosynchronous orbit) you still need rockets to add a delta-v of 30 thousand km/h. maybe at that altitude SSTO would b...

Re: Another Space Elevator Design

what gravity losses? Because you can focus on accelerating horizontally and need to spend less energy on getting to altitude, fighting gravity. the tower is what, 20-30 km tall? You would still need to get 300 km higher for a decent dragless orbit. The gains would be marginal, after all, it would s...

Re: Another Space Elevator Design

I don't see much of an advantage as well. Main things you safe are drag losses and gravity losses. You might be able to use engines that are more optimized for a vacuum. But that's about it. I don't think it is worth the effort. what gravity losses? as for engine optimization, we are talking here a...

Re: Another Space Elevator Design

Why exactly would they save so much fuel just because they are leaving from Stratosphere? They would STILL Need to reach a delta-v of 28 thousand kilometer per hours, which is really what consumes most fuel on a rocket. Negating atmospheric drag is a small part of that, as a normal rocket reaches 20...

Live blogging from AIAA Tech Paper Presentation by Heidi Fern. Unfortunatelly, seems like few people were there for the Mach Effect presentation... all eyes were on Tajmar's EM presentation that came after... Same thing on NSF Forums, where I posted the live blogging below a few hours ago and nobody...

Re: Mach Effect progress

in the beginning of the interview, he also talks about Paul March and Dr White, which he says something to the notion they are pursuing impossible science, because of White's QVF theories. he then said to the host (Dr David Livingstone) that he would give Paul March's personal telephone number, so h...
