Hey teo. As for Wichita, got pretty good ideas as to what she is. Although I have no idea what her skin is made up of, its good conjecture in my
opinion shes using double negative index refractive metamaterial at specific wavelengths relating to radar. That much is obvious from looking at her
photos. Something interesting happens to EM phase velocities traveling faster than c in the dielectric metamaterial if its at frequencies outside
the intended envelope of double negative index refraction its designed for.
Questions that keep me up at night (mostly cause im A. Dumb and should ponder other things like financial destitution and personal poverty, and B. I
seriously need to get a life) for others to help me ponder and explore:
Speaking of plasma (not referring to the above) wouldnt it be interesting and full of uses if a plasma bloom could be excited via light in such a way
to create an EM resonant chamber to put your b21 or Wichita or tr3whatever inside of?
Could you then create a tuned dielectric medium that changes the refraction or whatever of long wavelength radar thats old school but coming back into
vogue these days to thwart stealthy aircraft intended to evade small wavelength radar bands? Could that be what the xharged front edge and charged
exhaust of the b2 was really about besides the obvious other applications than some electrogravitic effect? So like, use metamaterial skin for small
wavelengths and tuned plasma cavity for larger wavelengths ....full spectrum stealth to nearly all radar wavelengths used?
Same plasma sheath also duel purpose?
Like use it to act as a air spike for heavy duty drag reduction?
use it as a laminate sheath over the wings and fuselage surfaces for slipstreaming, altering lift and even stall angles? Would that increase
altitude, penetration range and loiter times as well as speed and fuel usage?
Use SAME plasma sheath to also help "seed" their new "scramjet" which should be scaleable for use on many sized aircraft and not just useful for high
Maybe use even more plasma pulsing out of phase with the turbulent air eddies found immediately after exhaust or inside the air intakes to add a
little aural mitigation by smoothing things out?
Also, in my opinion it would be cool if using an elaborate rig and again light to make said EM resonant cavity replicate "Casimir like" effects at a
macro scale but using a different process? That would be nifty to be able to do.
Also vacuum pressure gradients...we sure he was talking about air as the medium?
would a nicely controllably conductive graphene laced hull help make shaping the field and strength of dielectric plasma sheaths resonant interior
chamber easier for creating said gradient? Or do we still gotta use a ton of coils or something?
Would it be critical to have something that can superconduct to achieve this "casimir like effect" like you know if you wanted to dip deeper below
the otherwise normal noise threshold of the phase domain of said resonant frequency inside cavity? What would that possibly allow you to do?
Could the graphene laced hull also function like a jaynes cummings lattice and conduct light or some EM efficiently throughout hull/shell to help out
with the whole process?
Could tuned dielectric resonant plasma sheath thingy also be dialed in to specific frequencies that are in accord harmonically with both the compton
wavelength/debroglie frequency and the "mediums" fundamental frequency and get neato effects like spontaneous photon emission suppression and if so,
what would that do to the metrics if played with? Would that change permitivity and permeability of somethings and would that get rid of a lot of
problems that plague things that cant do 90 degree turns so well?
Getting back to metamaterials Voldamort said something about flexible graphene feathered skin. That makes sense especially if you consider folks
probably wanting to use MAW or shape changing fuselages. Maybe thats critical to achieve something else we haven't heard much about? But also
"feathers or scales" could be made maybe to various specs to do different metamaterial things like convert radar into other less compromising bands of
EM, or electricity or turn heat into other things to thwart IR? Layer them different "scales or feathers" for desired effects like having a outer
coat and a under coat to the skin to achieve a wide variety of things?
Oh one final thought. Dont they have gravimetric radars these days to that detect mass? Wouldnt all degrees of EM refraction be useless if such a
thing existed..... .....or would it?.....and if such "radars systems" exist wouldnt a reduce mass be pretty useful like for other applications
besides one upping skylarks and other agile birds with your newfound maneuverability? Like say if you wanted to loiter for long periods of time over
heavily monitored airspace?
Finally would D.U.D.E ever consider befrending civilians such as bassplyr and help him get free wifi? At least when hes operating an aircraft in my
neighborhood? my verizon data overage is killing me.
