Isn't it amazing how so many other things that seemed so innocent at the time suddenly take on an entirely new meaning?

another thing to look at with that patent is the asignee... notice it mentions the secaf... meaning the design was taken for an air force assignment

HERE IT IS


www.google.com...

1. A method of transportation of cargo from the surface of the Earth, to orbit around the Earth, comprising the minimum steps of:
lifting off the surface of the Earth in an atmospheric airship, docking with a floating docking facility within the upper atmosphere, transferring to a hybrid craft, the hybrid craft both lighter than air and having a shape which generates dynamic lift when the craft is moving through the air, the hybrid craft including propulsion adapted to cause the craft to accelerate, and utilizing the hybrid craft to accelerate to orbital velocity.


The components are chevron shaped, lifting bodies.

Nice!

That last link I posted was crap... my bad. Too many tabs but this is much closer.

ETA: Oh WHAT! Good job man!

Well said, sir.


It's remarkable how many seemingly random pieces of information line up so neatly with this overall picture.

from what im reading, the phoenix lights airship is a lighter than air craft used for transport of people and objects to a waystation in upper atmosphere which looks like a wheel hub. Problem im seeing is
"Over several days it reaches orbital velocity, and an altitude between 330,000 and 550,000 feet." how the hell? isnt orbital velocity around 15-20 mach? or does it change depending on your specifications

dude that could possibly account for at least one portion of the pheonix lights mystery being solved. Good job Baraka.

You can get a large enough weather balloon up well over 100,000 feet. That altitude is still a ways away from orbit, but if you were to launch a payload at that height, it would need almost no fuel at all, and would have an almost non-existent launch signature.

But notice that it said "in the upper atmosphere". You could transfer to another craft from there that launched out into space, with no one being the wiser.

A single lighter than air vehicle cannot be used to reach orbital altitude nor orbital velocity. A vehicle light enough and large enough to achieve orbit cannot survive the high pressure winds and turbulence of the lower atmosphere. One vehicle is required for the lower portion of the journey, another for the upper portion. It the minimum of three lighter-than-air vehicles working together that make this method of reaching Earth's orbit possible.

Do you have a link for that quote.? That is in line with what Astr0 was referring to.

I'll try to find it since we're neighbors.

Here's one

Or this

Thanks neighbor.

Was the multi stage lighter that aircraft to orbit blurb from Astr0 though?

I was wondering where you got this:

"A single lighter than air vehicle cannot be used to reach orbital altitude nor orbital velocity. A vehicle light enough and large enough to achieve orbit cannot survive the high pressure winds and turbulence of the lower atmosphere. One vehicle is required for the lower portion of the journey, another for the upper portion.

Thanks.

WOW and Neat. This patent looks like a visual interpretation of George Friedman's Battle Stars as described in "The Next 100 Years" ( ISBN: 978-0-7679-2305-7).

With the only difference being where in the atmosphere they are deployed, and who controls them. Back to the video in the OP, we're all assuming that its a Space Station. What "IF" it's one of these ships instead. Now that's a head scratcher.

Oh.

Last paragraph before you see PATENT CITATIONS

Right Here

I'm pretty sure Astr0 mentioned something lighter than air that wasn't a ballon when he first started talking (or when I first saw him talking) about graphene. I can look for that if you would like.

The Chevron appears to be a means of getting to the space station. Or partway at least.


The high altitude airship cannot reach orbit. The orbital airship cannot reach the ground. The buoyant transfer station and docking facility is the connection between the two vehicles.
