Launch is less an issue than recovery. Even a plane that will fly <100mph would have difficulty always landing safely on a carrier without the restraints. BTW, not to sound a broken record on the issue, but note that the X-47 is still under $1B total development cost whereas the F-35 is passing $40...

Blah, blah, blah. Obviously wrong, as per usual, Perky. What amazes me is that folks like yourself can make logically impossible claims "there is no such evidence" without ever having checked at all. Please provide some concrete examples, since TDPerk is so "obviously" wrong.

IIRC, it's 88,000X the acceleration of the craft by other means. That's why it's called a "boost". Velocity, not acceleration. But I quibble. Velocity is relative. Which velocity is being boosted? It is rather the acceleration, which is not relative, that is boosted. As far as I understan...

Lets make a deal, shall we chris? You give me one single argument against what you believe my position is, and if I answer it to everyone's satisfaction here, excepting you of course; then you leave this forum and never return. ...and if you don't, then you leave?? chrismb has never entirely exclud...

I suppose when chris tries to trash a close friend of 93143 we can expect him to be impatient with the troll as well. I should think though, it is obvious chris is arguing for the sake of being a troll. He is deliberately being contentious over things he either knows nothing about, or knows he is w...

But this is a relatively trivial stretch of the imagination compared with an earlier dialogue in a thread (maybe this one) somewhere here - Paul has indicated that this system may not simply be a process of 'work' that is taking entropy from somewhere else in the universe, it may also be taking ent...

So, which is the flawed premise, or are none of the premises flawed, In your opinion? I believe premise #4 and how it is arrived at is entirely flawed. 1. It assumes a superconducting or non-waste heat-producing system (the experiments Woodward have done do not support this.) 2. It assumes perfect,...

State which line the error of premise occurs: 1) A 1 kg test thruster is subjected to a 130 uN of thrust generated by a 'Mach thruster' driven by a nuclear thermal battery that has an output electronically governed to 1 W. 2) It accelerates for 10 years (call it 300 Ms) from a given rest frame at w...

~ And as I've noted before, it's far easier to steal a freighter, fill it with fertilizer and blow up a city from port. Yet we don't panic over that possibility as well as hundreds of other doomsday scenarios. Rather, we just take the appropriate actions to see that doesn't happen. This just plain ...

Re: Looking At Johnson

The GOP should look across the aisle to the Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. The former Governor of New Mexico won over a million votes, the LP’s best showing since 1980. Johnson’s success shows that Americans are interested in what the GOP has always said it stood for but never delivered ...

Check out the report for the continuation and expansion comment. As for the James Bond stuff, since the US Navy is funding this, they would like to get a small lead time edge on competition, https://www.neco.navy.mil/synopsis_file/N6893609C0125%20_Redacted_JA.pdf Thanks CHoff, I must have missed th...

Just a strange mindset is my bet. Then call my mindset strange as well. I have been following polywell since before Joe Strout stood up this forum. Although there's no evidence of complete failure, the absence of any actual positive evidence either makes the only *success* that EMC can talk about t...
