starship-design: Ideas, thoughts, and speculation
I have some ideas that we might consider.
Slowing a sail-ship: How about using a magnetic loop to slow the ship. I
about that concept somewhere before.
RAIR Ramscoops: Instead of using a physical scoop, use a magnetic scoop.
could use a laser to ionize the gass directly in front of the ship, and
magnetically shunt it into the drive assembly. The laser might also help
Laser ionization: Use a pulsed laser to ionize fuel for thrust.
EXOTIC ideas: Read at own risk!
Wouldn't it be nice if we could use just energy as fuel? Sure, if it
Gravity/Antigravity generation: I have some ideas, but I don't know
Tachyon propulsion: Great! How is it done? And I hate time travel!
Magnetic Warping of space: Hmmmm...
Alcubierre warp drive: Good, neat, but unfortunately they don't sell
matter at the local 7-11.
As always, TAKE THESE IDEAS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT!
