Re: starship-design: combined fuel-track/electron beam ?

Hi Kevin,

You had a thought:

>1) give the fuel pellets a net positive charge.

To accelerate the pellets by electrical means?

>2) accelerate the pellets with magnetic and electrical means
>3) launch the fuel so that the fastest part is launched first.


>4) as the ship launches, beam electrons at it.

To make the ship attractive for the pellets?
