Autonomous laser spacecraft for the purpose of redirecting asteroid trajectory.
A 300 KWH laser heating the rock face of the asteroid target produces about 400 tons per second of thrust. Deep space interception of the asteroid provides enough time to shift the trajectory into a solar intercept course.
The Idea proposed is to construct a Floating Runway in a circular lake.
By having the runway floating, it can be turned in such a way that it is possible to create optimum landing and take off conditions under various types of weather.
In recent years, aluminum alloys have become the dominant material for body-in-white (BiW) and battery enclosures (“BE”) in electric vehicles (“EV”) due to their low density. Aluminum BiW and BE, or other platform parts, typically provide weight savings of ~40% compared to equivalent commercially-used steels.
Proposed design for storage of electrical energy in the form of flywheel rotation
In our efforts to move away from fossil fuels and towards forms of renewable energy there is the problem of a mismatch between the generation of energy and consumption of this energy.
