Welcome to the discusion Lora!  Hope you enjoy it here.
You might want to check out the website we have which have old discusions and
articals written up on topics.  A new one in work

The new site we're using for the new draft documents are at:


Our old web site (with back newsletters) and other material is at:


The school of starship design is the part you'ld be most interested in.

Not sure what you mean about the plasma drive.  Couldn't hurt to upload some

It sounds like a small low power thruster idea I heard about for satelight
station keeping.  We have tossed around lots of drive ideas, some using
plasmas.  Basically we need a HUGE amount of power for thrust.

Anyway, welcome to the group.
