Re: SpaceX News

As I understand it, they decided not to fund retropropulsive landing of the capsule so they could throw that money toward BFR (or whatever its called this week ;) ).

Re: Mach Effect progress

Is there a summary anywhere of who has duplicated Woodward's results with respect to finding anomalous thrust explicable by Mach Effect affirming results? I know there has been such, about 6 if I remember, but am trying to put together a list.

Re: Mach Effect progress

For your enjoyment, I'd like to introduce you to Monomorphic, a gentlemen who seems to like recreating Dean Drives while claiming he is saying something about Mach Effect Thrusters.

The address of the whole ENN Group is accessible at http://www.enn.cn/wps/portal/enn.en , but I have not been able to locate the symposium site from there.

Fluidic? The article doesn't say it has liquid electrodes like a vanadium battery. Do you have a link?

Re: 2018 NIAC Symposium

It would be quite humorous if a man-made crystalline structure of paired lithium atoms turned out to be a key material for the Mach Effect device. :roll: What's worse is that over 60 years ago, Vernor von Braun wrote a book about the settlement of Mars. The title of the Chief Executive of the Marti...
