Hi All

Has anyone heard or read about this type of propulsion technology which some name Chang Diaz and has company Ad Astra Rocket Company have been making this and testing it for years. http://www.adastrarocket.com/aarc/


It has the ability to send a an object to a Mars in 39 days! Yet I have browsed around on the web and nothing new has been mentioned about this so does anyone know what is happening?

Nice, but it does not exist alot of difficulties there. Nice try though.

the test launch has been delayed until 2014 and may be even farther back than that.

wiki

For future reference, when you try to search for anything relating to it search "magento plasma engine" not "Vasimr" you'll get a lot more results and a lot more accurate ones.

max planck quantum network/

something I predicted two years ago even going so far as to contact hawking, as in Stephen Hawking's office about it, and told rather curtly that I didn't know what I was talking about.

Yet here it is two years later and two german scientists do the experiment as I laid out. Using Quantum Entanglement to transmit "Classical" information.

the key: was using a photon, which does not have superposition as a possible state, to encode the state of the atom into the polarity of the photon, thus allowing you to transmit, positive and negative states, while getting rid of the superposition "static".

by allowing one to encode the state into the polarity of the photon, you get a clear positive and negative states of the photon, in doing so permits the expression of 1 and 0 which is binary, through which classical information can be transmitted.

Huzzah!!!

Ah, the plasma rocket. I remember seeing this on a Nova Science Now. They had a whole special on how to get to Mars, they talked allot about this propulsion system, interesting stuff.

Man here I think I was being original and someone has beaten to the punch years beforehand.

This is B/S

Well, someday hopefully I will beat someone to the punch.

Well apparently they have experimenting with plasma engine since the beginning of the space race its just now it is more efficient and faster i think. What happened to the Deep Space 1 ion engine? isn't that just as good as the Vasimr engine, maybe they could use both at the same time.

Found out why this is not begin used on ISS, apparently the ISS power is not strong enough, its need to be 200kw. There is always something isn't there.
