Using a lasers to cause the fission is rather genius in my opinion. I wonder what kinds of speeds we will be dealing with here?

Except they're not. The lasers are used in a ablative compression fusion setup. The neutrons from the fusion cause fission in the liner.

It's a hybrid fusion-fission setup.

Very interesting timing given what this guy wrote on ATS the other night -- sans the paragraphs questioning his sanity. Read as: crazy guy who was sane enough to eliminate the references to his own sanity to try to get people to listen to him.

Honestly I got about halfway through before I gave up because of the sheer ridiculousness.

It is indeed a bizarre rant.

I know.

but i's much more interesting to think they were testing a new power source.

I am wondering if there is a kind of propulsion system that doesnt work on thrust, maybe magnetic propulsion?

Finding information on anti gravity is difficult, it would be nice if there was a compilation thread on it on ATS maybe I will start one.

No. I said it was odd because I think the guy who wrote it believes it.

Re-read what I wrote.

I wonder how small they could get this engine could it work say at the nano or micro level?

Iron man style?
