Theory for Gravitic Propulsion
(In Progress)
Revised and updated July 16, 2002
Universe Today
- Space news from around the Internet, updated every weekday. Forward I would like to begin by informing the reader that I am not a physicist, I am an electronics design technologist. I have been researching electroluminescence since 1993, which resulted in my curiosity regarding the nature of photons (electromagnetic energy) and their interactions with electronic devices (matter).
I would also like to qualify the title of this article. I did not entitle it " The Theory of Gravitic Propulsion" because it is not yet a complete theory, it is a new way of understanding our universe of matter and energy, based somewhat loosely upon some of the concepts outlined by Albert Einstein.
The main focus of this article is the result of many years of thought and readings on the nature of energy, matter and gravity (which I refer to as matter's "gravitic effect" in space-time). It is my intent in this article to contrive a description of physical reality that binds and accounts for these "components" of our universe, while attempting to maintain compatibility with existing theories and knowns. In 1996, Dr. Miguel Alcubierre Moya, a physicist currently working (2001) at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, published a paper which demonstrates mathematically that the type of propulsion system I propose here is possible with certain limitations and apparent energy supply problems, which I believe will be solved as the true nature of physical reality becomes more fully understood. Unfortunately, I did not hear about or read his paper until 2001, 2 years after I first published this article and 5 years after his paper became available. I was surprised to discover that we both came to some of the same conclusions regarding the implementation of this as yet undeveloped technology. I respectfully acknowledge Dr. Alcubierre's work and thank him for his contribution to this new branch of physics I refer to as "Gravitics".

29. Seafury Surface Piercing Propulsion Units, Surface Drives And Surface Piercing P
Information about Seafury propulsions Systems surfacepiercing propellors which provide exceptionally quiet and economical high speed power boat cruising
Seafury Surface Drives are ideally suited for commercial vessels including high-speed ferries, fishing boats, commercial dive boats, excursions boats, restaurant and casino boats, work boats, crew boats, water taxis, and pollution control craft. Government agencies operation rescue, patrol, fire fighting, drug interdiction, and coast guard vessels also select surface drives.
To optimise boat performance, productivity and fuel economy, Seafury drives match to most marine diesel and may also be used with many marine gasoline and gas turbine engines. Twin and triple installations increase the total installed propulsion power.
Quality pleasure boats also benefit from the high performance, durability, light weight, and efficiency of Seafury surface drives.
Seafury drives offer many advantages compared with some of the more complex surface drives including easy installation, high performance, smooth operation, low maintenance, and excellent value. Especially notable is the unique 45-degree transom for excellent reversing characteristics and the integral engine exhaust. Minimal moving parts, no external hydraulics or electrical components make this a very simple drive to install and maintain.
Surface drives are typically applied with planing and semi-planing hulls free of the drag inducing appendages (underwater propellers, rotating shafts, skegs, and rudders) normally associated with underwater propeller drives.

32. Beginner's Guide To Propulsion

Beginner's Guide to Propulsion
Welcome to the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion What is propulsion? The word is derived from two Latin words: pro meaning before or forwards and pellere meaning to drive. Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. A propulsion system is a machine that produces thrust to push an object forward. On airplanes, thrust is usually generated through some application of Newton's third law of action and reaction. A gas, or working fluid , is accelerated by the engine, and the reaction to this acceleration produces a force on the engine. A general derivation of the thrust equation shows that the amount of thrust generated depends on the mass flow through the engine and the exit velocity of the gas. Different propulsion systems generate thrust in slightly different ways. We will discuss four principal propulsion systems: the propeller,

33. FE: Electric Propulsion GB
Research carried out by the Institute of Space Systems. Also contains a good overview of the various types of electric propulsion.
IRS Research Deutsche Version Electric Space Propulsion Overview
In the field of space transportation, it was recognized quite early that the propulsion abilities of the chemical rocket propulsion units are so minimal that missions which require higher propulsion can only be successfully carried out with a multiple gradation and a small portion of payload. The reason for this lies in the inferior energy capacity of the fuel whereby the maximum attainable exit speed from a rocket nozzle is limited to approximately 4 to 5 km/s One possibility of overcoming this limitation is the coupling of additional energy for example in the form of electric energy. This was already performed by Goddard in 1906 and later by Hermann Oberth in his book "The Rocket to the Planetary Spaces" Because the possibility of space travel was first made concrete with the development of large rockets after World War II, it was mainly the work of Ernst Stuhlinger which once more drew attention to the advantages of electric space propulsion, and has, since the 1960s, led an extensive worldwide research and development program. Various concepts differing extensively from one another, mainly on the basis of the acceleration mechanism, were examined because with electric energy, acceleration can occur purely thermally, electrostatically or electromagnetically. In order to achieve efficient utilization of electrostatic or electromagnetic acceleration forces, a charge carrier must first be established through the ionization of the fuel, for which there are again different starting points.

Products include steam turbines and gas turbines for power generation, mechanical drives and propulsion systems. We also develop and deliver PFBC power plants.

35. Emerging Possibilities For Space Propulsion Breakthroughs
article by Marc.G.Millis
Emerging Possibilities for Space Propulsion Breakthroughs
Originally published in the Interstellar Propulsion Society Newsletter, Vol. I, No. 1, July 1, 1995. Marc G. Millis
Space Propulsion Technology Division
NASA Lewis Research Center
Cleveland, Ohio
The ideal interstellar propulsion system would be one that could get you to other stars as quickly and comfortably as envisioned in science fiction. Before this can become a reality, two scientific breakthroughs are needed: discovery of a means to exceed light speed, and discovery of a means to manipulate the coupling between mass and spacetime. This article explains why these breakthroughs are needed and introduces the emerging possibilities that may eventually lead to these breakthroughs. It should be noted that either of these breakthroughs by itself would have revolutionary consequences which would be of enormous value. The need to exceed light speed: Simply put, the universe is big. The fastest thing known is light, yet it takes over four years for light to reach our nearest neighboring star. When NASA's Voyager spacecraft left our solar system is was traveling around 37- thousand mph. At that rate it couldn't reach the nearest star until after 80-thousand years. If we want to cruise to other stars within comfortable time spans (say, less than a term in Congress), we have to figure out a way to go faster than light. The need to manipulate mass and spacetime coupling: This need is less obvious than the light speed issue. The problem is fuel, or more specifically, rocket propellant. Unlike a car that has the road to push against, or an airplane that has the air to push against, rockets don't have roads or air in space. Rockets have to carry along all the mass that they'll need to push against. To circumvent this problem, we need to find a way to interact with spacetime itself to induce propulsive forces without using propellant. This implies that we'll need to find a way to alter a vehicle's inertia, its gravitational field, or its connectivity to the structure of spacetime itself.
