Flying Platforms with Nuclear Pulse Propulsion


In the near future, only in a few decades, space travel could look like this: huge flying platforms that are propelled by pure fusion detonations start from earth’s surface and fly nonstop to mars and land there after a few weeks in it’s desert near a building site. A ticket to mars will be affordable for most people. The platforms are made of concrete and construction steel and of 30,000 metric tons mass. The technology is rather primitive but complicated. The more mass the better for the vessels. The power of the fusion detonations is huge. The fuels are liquid deuterium for the fusion pulse units with liquid methane, oxygen and tritium for the pure fusion primary igniters. Pure fusion detonators are possible, there’s a chance that they already secretely exist in the arsenals. The energy of fusion propulsion is 10,000 times more than that of chemical propulsion. This and its side effects makes the tickets up to 50,000 times cheaper. Trips to earth orbit will cost $1000, to the moon and back $5000, to mars and back $20,000, value in currency of 2012. I know that this sounds unbelievable, but I will convince You with physical and engineering arguments in the following text.




The Shark and the Caveman


Building Micro Black Holes utilising the Ulam Ablation Pressure Principle

In this article I will present one of those unimaginable applications of pure fusion detonations that may occur in the near future. Only a few decades from now on, after the solar system is becoming settled and the first interstellar arks are on their way to extrasolar earthlike planets, mankind may begin to start looking for new challenging goals. They may start experimenting with ultradense objects that are able to distort space and time. They may build an artificial black hole to use it as the ultimate power plant. I will show You now a first design for a machine that really creates an artificial black hole. I’ve calculated it, to be sure that it would work. I’m 95% sure but I’m only an engineer and a bad physicist, and want to put it up for discussion with presenting it here. Readers who know my texts know I like experimenting with interesting ideas. So don’t be too exited and afterwards sad if someone proofs that it will not work. There migth be still errors. I call the machine The Shark.


The ultimate machine invented for creating black holes with Ulams ablation principle. In the middle is an asteroid iron globe. Cascades of fusion detonators are fired synchronized from all directions on the celestial object to form a hot plasma sphere surrounding the globe. The surface of the globe vapourizes fiercely for a fraction of a second and pushes the massive, object inwards. Just during the explosions attenuate the next salvo is exploded, one after the other. Staggered rows – just like the teeth of a shark – of detonators increase the plasma density sufficiently damped for not blasting the iron globe by dissipation heat of the shock wave and compress it until the core exceeds all limits. The object implodes and a big fraction of the inner material is compressed into a black hole, Fig: Author
