Default Ideas for space travel

People always talk about doing space travel and such, but what about how to get there. Post your ideas on ways to interstellarly travel. Don't post things that 75% would already know about, but rather the more different theories, to make it more interesting ya know

ME: I have a really weird idea which we do have the technology to do, it would just take A LOT of money to make. Basically we use a giant magnet with at least 9.2T(3.1x10^-5T) Teslas of power (which is the equivalent of about 1/4th of the poles' magnetic power, which isn't that impossible). It would take a lot of Time and Money to charge one that big, but it's possible. Then you get another like that, except you must make it of the opposite charge this time. Get some Tungsten, 17-4 PH, Oridium-Wolfram, or whatever the scientists say is the strongest metal is the world, and use that and wire between the two magnets, one ON the craft, and one 5 meters away. Since it is so close to each other, by instantaneously changing it to the same charge, it should fly several thousands of time faster than anything we have today.
As you can see the only problem is not the flight at this point, but rather a way to self-sustain the craft.

use a particle accelerator to accel a particle to super fast sppeds.then have a device to "catch" the particle and convert its momentum into forward force. since no inertia in space. it will keep going at that speed. theoretically

Simple answer: Wormholes.

All that is really needed is about ten to twelve extremely high-powered lasers all fixated at a certain spot. If enough energy is created in the fixated vacinity, a wormhole is created. You can travel through the wormholes to other parts of a galaxy, constellation, universe, etc. This is not a reliable form of space travel though. You don't know where you will end up on the other end of the wormhole. Therefore, a super-sonic spacecraft should be created out of negative energy to assure you make your way back (or just more lasers).

Default Re: Ideas for space travel

There are at least four different classes of space travel, in order of increasing difficulty:
  • Near Earth Orbit (NEO)
  • Interplanetary Transit (I include transit to the Moon and asteroids in this)
  • Interstellar Transit (minimum distance of 4.5 lightyears)
  • Intergalactic Transit (minimum distance of 70K lightyears)

With current technology, the difficulty and time required to achieve these differing stages increases exponentially (really, an exponent of an exponent), such that intergalactic transit is essentially impossible.

NEO
The current generation of technology has proven that orbital transit can be sustained without government intervention, and indeed has proven almost routine in nature. NEO technology is one the cornerstones of current-generation of technologies (GPS, Satellite TV, weather forecasting, sruveying). NEO operations have been possible since the 50's and routine since the 70's. The best chance to reduce the cost of this form of transit are space elevators and rail guns.

Space elevators will require advances in material technologies, and rail guns aren't suitable for manned transit, because of the forces involved.

On a side note, materials science is advancing rapidly, partly due to advances in nanotechnology.

Interplanetary
While not at all routine, interplanetary transit is not only theoretically possible, but a proven reality. An increase in engineering and sociological challenges accompanies manned travel beyond the Moon, and these remain theory rather than practice. However, the chief obstacle is political and economic, rather than technological. Unmanned interplanetary travel is almost common for many space-faring nations (US, Europe, Russia, Japan). The best systems for achieving a reduction in time and increase in efficiency are plasma drives and solar sails.

Plasma drives are held back mainly due to budgetary concerns, and will probably require exotic powerplants, such nuclear reactors. Solar sails will require advances in materials science.

If anyone is interested after this, I'll elaborate on interstellar and intergalactic transit.

Simple answer debunked.



Also, if the space travel is for people...well it should be something that doesn't kill them.



Rocket ships are dangerous enough as it is.

Spam once and the forum will be annoyed.

Spam thrice and a infraction you will receive
Spam 8,984 times and a FAIL Agent you''ll soon be.

...At least in my case.
