Fuel Efficient Five-Gear Rocket Engine Design - Rocket engines used today to launch satellites run at maximum exhaust velocity until they reach orbit. For a car, this would be analogous to staying all the time in first gear. Georgia Tech researchers have designed a new space rocket which works as if it has a five-gear transmission system.

    Scientist eyes 39-day voyage to Mars - The Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket (VASIMC) is becoming a centerpiece of NASA's future strategy. It would use electricity to transform a fuel -- likely hydrogen, helium or deuterium -- into plasma gas that is heated to 11 million degrees Celsius. The plasma gas is then channeled into tailpipes using magnetic fields to propel the spacecraft. (Yahoo News; Feb. 26, 2010)

  • Applied Plasma Technologies Applied Plasma Technologies (APT) develops and manufactures plasma assisted combustion systems for reliable ignition, flame control, clean and stable combustion of different fuels in gas turbines, high speed propulsion systems, boilers, technological burners.
  • Magnetohydrodynamics:Plasma-Powered Flying Saucers - With a span of less than 15 centimetres, Subrata Roy's aircraft qualifies as a micro air vehicle (MAV), but it has an unconventional design to say the least. It is a saucer shape covered with electrodes that ionise air to create a plasma. (PESWiki; May 10, 2008)

    Teen girl from Egypt has just reinvented space travel - Egyptian Aisha Mustafa, 19, has dazzled the physics world with a new invention that could launch spacecraft off the Earth's surface and soaring through space without any fuel. Space is filled with a billowing sea of quantum particles that jump in and out of existence, and Aisha Mustafa proposes using thin silicon panels, spaced closely together, to trap these particles and then move against them, creating a propelling force.

    Warp Drive Propulsion and Starship Travel Concept by Brandon Keys - ...laid out in laymen's terms. It basically creates a magnetic warped bubble of space around the 'body of a starship. Then, the magnetic bubble of warped space will "pull space" or "shorten space" in front of the ship and will push space -- expand space -- in the back the starship, propelling it faster than the speed of light.

    The Enigmatic Solid State Gravity Box - An anonymous individual referring to himself only as "S.F." has posted a series of videos detailing experiments performed on a gravity defying black box along with propulsion characteristics. He claims that it violates Newton's laws producing action without reaction! (PESN and BeforeItsNews; March 27, 2011)

    Morningstar Energy Box Announcement - Russian "MEC" Partially Replicated - The Russian energy and anti-gravity device, the "Magnetic Energy Converter" (MEC), was claimed to produce magnetic anomalies, lower the temperature of its surroundings, self-sustain without input, and even produce anti-gravity effects. Its partial replication will be announced at the Space, Propulsion & Energy Sciences International Forum (SPESIF) on March 15-17, 2011 at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The Cutting Edge

On Feb. 24, 2008, Daniel Bowers wrote:

I was just looking at the new propulsion wiki page and realized that those systems are primitive compared to the other concepts for space propulsion.

Plasma rocket:

The late Robert Bussards concept for a plasma fusion rocket

Antimatter Propulsion

Antimatter

Traveling at 186,000 miles per second we could get to Alpha Centauri in 4 years. Current methods of space travel can do this in 40,000 years. 7 or even 10 miles per second doesn't get us anywhere.

The future of space exploration lays in antimatter rockets

Antimatter sail

NAIC Mars explorer antimatter concept

There are many variations of these types of systems, the first generation will most likely be antimatter assisted plasma fusion rockets. Well, first fusion, then fusion rockets, then antimatter assisted plasma rockets and ultimately antimatter propulsion systems which will lead the way to Alpha Centauri and beyond within the next couple of centuries.

    Bobby Amarasingam's Water Propulsion Technology - Here's a video from my travels, featuring a water propulsion technology that is safer for humans and marine life while being around 60% more efficient than a propeller. It uses three cone shapes on a rod, the middle one of which moves forward and backward, such that both movements push water backwards. (PESWiki and BeforeItsNews; September 4, 2011)
  • Solar > Space-Based / Flight > Propulsion >
    First solar powered spacecraft successfully launched - Today, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation Of the Sun (IKAROS) craft. IKAROS is a space yacht that gathers energy for propulsion from sunlight pressure (photons) by means of a square membrane measuring 20 meters (65.6 ft) diagonally. (GizMag; May 21, 2010)
  • Successful test of superconducting plasma rocket engine - Ad Astra Rocket Company has successfully demonstrated operation of its VX-200 plasma engine first stage at full power and under superconducting conditions. VASIMRA engines could enable space operations far more efficiently than today's chemical rockets, and ultimately they could also greatly speed up robotic and human transit times for missions to Mars and beyond.

  • Laser-Powered Aircraft Are The Future of Flight. Maybe - Leik Myrabo first got the idea in 1988 and called it LightCraft, a funnel-shaped craft with a parabolic reflector back in 2000. It channels the heat generated by a laser into its center, causing it to explode, thus generating thrust. Small jets of pressurized nitrogen spin the LightCraft at 6,000 RPM to maintain stability.
