Welcome to the group!  We range from engineers, physics students/researchers,
to anyone with a e-mail account.  After we arghued out the design ideas
illistrated in the site (Hey Dave I just noticed you've been uploading my new
draft stuff onto Sunsite!  Cool!!) we got quite for a while.  (Without any
new technology/physics breakthroughs thats abouit as good as we could think

But at the moment the idea of exotic (semi-unknown) power sources and physics
tricks has been geting a lot of discusion.  Such as Warp drives of zero point
energy.  (The down side is we can realisticly design anything using such
nebulous concepts.

Welcome to the group.
