Beam space propulsion

Beam space propulsion Purpose – The author's aim is to offer a revolutionary method – the non‐rocket transfer of energy and thrust into Space with distances of millions of kilometers. Design/methodology/approach – The author develops the theory and makes the computations. Findings – The method is more efficient than transmission of energy by high‐frequency waves. Practical implications – The method may be used for space launch and for acceleration of spaceships and probes to very high speeds, up to relativistic speed by current technology. Originality/value – The research presented contains prospective projects which illustrate the possibilities of the suggested method. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The author's aim is to offer a revolutionary method – the non‐rocket transfer of energy and thrust into Space with distances of millions of kilometers. Design/methodology/approach – The author develops the theory and makes the computations. Findings – The method is more efficient than transmission of energy by high‐frequency waves. Practical implications – The method may be used for space launch and for acceleration of spaceships and probes to very high speeds, up to relativistic speed by current technology. Originality/value – The research presented contains prospective projects which illustrate the possibilities of the suggested method.
