SpaceX & Nasa
Space is a big problem with our human drive to go to all places and see all things well it is space it is huge It will take years to reach the star but another human drive is finding solutions to bigger problems.
That’s what a NASA engineer is doing in his spare time. He designed an engine concept that he says can theoretically accelerate to 99 the speed of light without using propellant.
Today we’re going to talk about an amazing new light. About the speed engines, which SpaceX and NASA have collaborated to build.
How will these engines be developed if it is going to work without propellant what will be its fuel and most importantly human will be able to travel in such vehicle an engine as its thruster lasts till the end As we answer these questions and delve deeper into these new engines that will revolutionize the space industry forever.
Throttle and gimbal capability SpaceX’s pioneering self-landing rocket While the Raptor 1 has been refined over the years, it is now an outdated design, complex to construct and has a long transition between launches, it is capable of landing with a roof of 185 tons.
The medium is also moving through, which means Elon Musk’s Mars-bound starship will struggle to keep up with the demands.
This is where the new engines come into play. NASA engineer David Burns has uploaded a radical idea to NASA’s Technical Report Server under the title Helical Engines and it works on paper by taking advantage of it. How can mass change from relativistic speeds that are close to the speed of light in a vacuum.
This article has sparked interest in comparisons seen in the early days of the M Drive.
There are some theories suggesting that the engine may break the laws of physics for a bit of context. It’s important to know that the M drive above was NASA’s first really entered into the idea of trying to build an engine capable of faster than light travel.
So what exactly is the M Drive which was first introduced in 2001 by Roger Schauer, a British Chartered Electrical Engineer with 48 years of experience in space and defence. The Industries mdrive is a radio frequency resident cavity thruster idea with potential use as a spaceship thruster.
It is claimed that the media, often referred to as gadgets, are produced by reflecting microwaves internally in violation of the law of conservation of momentum and other physical principles.
The impossible drive explanation for how the M drive can function is beyond the known limits of physics. Perhaps it is the interaction of G space with quantum times vacuum energy, despite the fact that space quantum times vacuum energy nothing is able to push it. Is.
Perhaps our perception of motion has been shattered. Perhaps this is brand new physics. As announced by the M Drive tests, there is no official design for this device nor the individuals who claimed to have developed it. Committed to explaining how it can act as a thruster or what elements make it up.
NASA’s Advanced Propulsion Physics Laboratory reported seeing a small apparent thrust from one such test in 2016, resulting in subsequent studies. has not been repeated.
It shows that the observed thrust was a measurement error due to interactions with Earth’s magnetic field or thermal gradients in March 2021 scientists say. Published three papers from the Technical University of Dresden suggesting that this total temporal thrust was explained by external forces.
How such an engine would actually work and whether it is possible to produce it in real life with the resources we have is unlikely to ever defy the laws of physics, despite claims it has been met with skepticism from some quarters.
Burns believes this concept is worth pursuing, while Burns depicts a box with a weight out of a line and a spring at the other end bouncing back and forth as a thought experiment.
As space demonstrates its perception in a vacuum, it will appear to shake the entire box with the weight, like a static GIF around a weight, overall the box will continue to swing in the same spot.
However if the mass of the object is increased only in one direction it will create a strong push in that direction so we feel that this should not be entirely feasible according to the concept of conservation of momentum which states that any external influence The speed of a system remains constant in the absence of.
Einstein’s theory of special relativity states that objects gain mass because they are propelled towards the speed of light, the effect of which must occur in a particle accelerator, in fact a simple implementation of the concept of burning the ring with a spherical particle accelerator change in which the ions are rapidly accelerated.
Relative motion during one stroke and less during the other but Burns thinks it would make more sense to ditch the box and rod and employ particle accelerators for lateral as well as circular motion, in which case the accelerator would need to be shaped like a helix.
However there is a special relativity flaw that objects gain mass when they reach the speed of light according to special relativity, so if the weight is replaced by ions in a box with a loop, the ions will potentially be at one end of the loop. But on the other hand Burns drive is not a single closed loop moving slow.
helical like a stretched spring, that’s why it’s called a helical engine, the engine accelerates ions confined in a loop to moderate relativistic motion and then changes their velocity to cause slight changes in their mass, The engine then moves the ions back and forth along the direction.
To generate thrust the traveling engine has no moving parts other than ions which travel in a vacuum line trapped inside electric and magnetic fields, the helical chamber must be to be precise according to the scientist it is 200 m which is approximately 656 feet long and is 12 meters which is about 40 feet in diameter.
It would also require 165 megawatts of energy to produce one Newton of thrust which is the force required to accelerate one kilogram of mass per second squared, which is similar to the proposals of a power plant for propulsion-free vehicles such as helicals.
The previously mentioned M drive was suggested by Roger Schuer, the British inventor of the 2000s.
which claimed that trapped microwaves could be converted to thrust, neither idea has been conclusively proven and both are widely considered impossible due to a violation of a fundamental physical law, perhaps conservation of momentum. This is where we’ll tell you if your skepticism is justified.
But don’t let that fool you. With the rate at which aerospace technology is advancing, we shouldn’t be surprised if an engine capable of faster than light appears in the future, especially with NASA in its in-house tech genius like Elon, who That’s when all of our science fiction fantasies will turn.
Sure Fast Track to Becoming Science Fact So do you think NASA and SpaceX can translate this idea into a workable working engine.
