Laser propulsion, wild idea can really shine

Laser propulsion, "wild" idea may finally shine

New experiments on Laser Drawn demonstrate that you can build a hypersonic aircraft and lift beam gallaktichesky ship to orbit the Earth.

In truth, the revolutionary ships laser rod can change the jets in the modern commercial travel. The passengers could be transferred from one side of the planet to the other for less than an hour — just enough time to open these impenetrable bags of peanuts. Furthermore, link on the radiated energy in the state to make the flight to orbit easy, not difficult and unsafe.

At that believeth Mayrabo Lick, Doctor of Applied Mechanics Rensselirskogo Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New-york. He is an expert on controlled power devices, aerospace systems, gallakticheskim energy installations and promising types of traction.

The last three decades of burning desire Mayrabo have been done to show the viability of the concept of non-chemical traction for future aircraft crews in their own research work with the company Lightcraft Technologies, Inc., of Bennington, Vermont.

"Usually, the latest technology for traction to 25 years, which would mature … to the point where you can apply it. Yes, at the moment it's just time, "- said Mayrabo told SPACE.com

Real hardware … real physics

The more important news in the traction on the radiated energy — that's what experience is currently taking place in the Laboratory of hypersonic aeronautics and the Henry T. Nagamatsu in San Jose dos Campos, Brazil.

The work is funded under the agreement on international cooperation for the U.S. Air Force Office of Research and the Brazilian Air Force.

Basic research experiments use the existing massive lasers in Brazil, where experts will study physics base of heated air jets and laser-pulsed laser engines for future high-ships.

In the Brazilian laboratory hypersonic shock tunnel is associated with 2 pulsating infrared lasers, the peak power in the order of gigawatts — to this day it is a great power achieved in experiments on Laser Drawn explains Mayrabo.

"In the laboratory, we conduct a full-size test engines, which should revolutionize gallakticheskih travel" — emphasizes Mayrabo — "This is a real product. This is a real physicist. We get the real data … and it's not the study on paper. "

"Right at the moment we get the data," — explains Mayrabo. — "When you start the engine, it's a real rumble. Sound, as if shot from a gun inside the laboratory. It's really loud. "

The experiments on laser-powered, adds Mayrabo, are also relevant to launch nano-satellites (weighing from 1 to 10 kilograms) and microsatellites (10 to 100 kilograms) into low Earth orbit.

Highway light

Creating and flying "highways of light" for Mayrabo was a methodical, step-by-step work.

From 1996 to 1999 he ran his own layouts desyatikilovattnogo devices using an infrared laser on missile test site at White Sands, New Mexico. In 2000, sponsored by a grant from a private company, he set a world altitude record: over 230 feet (71 meters) for the raised laser models in free flight.

Mayrabo co-authored with John Lewis, in his own recent book "Reading book on the ship at the laser rod LTI-20", which has recently posted the publishing house "Apogee", explains his zeal to cheap, non-hazardous access to space through the ship, movable laser.

"Regarding the physics of high energy … motion through the atmosphere with the radiated energy in the world … not enough experience that would make things real. It is one hundred percent outside the ordinary "- explains Mayrabo. — "I have been working on this 30 years. I know how to do it. "

As explained Mayrabo for decades physicists engaged in the laser rod, want to achieve rates of laser energy in two bucks per watt. "We have gained this. At the moment it is a question of will and what are we willing to do it. This development is currently within reach of the commercial. "
