Didn't you do that before? How for heaven sake have you been archieving 140

The problem is the amount of power needed, no technology of today except for
H-boms can give us that power easely.

If we want to go to TC, habsize doesn't depend on the kind of propulsion, we
just NEEDS space to live and work in. Every extra kilogram that is not
needed should be eliminated regardless of the type of engine.

What about a mission to Venus? The high temperatures would make it a nice
Or the outer regions of our solar system, doing it as fast as possible, ie.
using 1g all the time. The trip would take about 3 weeks.
We could of course stay on Earth and look for a way to easely go to the
bottom of the oceans. A submarine that isn't limited by 300 or 1000 metres
of depth.

Ric, are these Beads the beads on a cord? (I wondered about this since the
first time I read your signature)
