Inspired by: Each of my past projects have all been inspired by different events or ideas of interest. This project was inspired by the direction of a previous project that was inspired when I noticed a problem with a NASA mission report back from 2003 that covered ozone ‘limb’ viewing. Other inspirations that helped guide the design of my engine include Ted T.A.L.K. presentations, Boaz Almog’s quantum locking and Jeffery Rusick’s deep space exploration, plus documentaries, ‘Upward Bound: Space Elevators’ and ‘Search for the Super Battery’ by Daniel McCabe.
