Ah, I see now. I had similar ideas, but everyone kept telling me they
were impossible. I think your idea would work, and I am already
beginning to work with such things. Be VERY careful with devices like
that if you try them, since a hypermass of that small size and ultrahigh
mass, could theoretically become a Micro black hole. That could be great
for energy/propulsion, but very dangerous. Good idea!
