Good to see back in the thread 1of9
Probably not but the USAF did authorise a $5million grant to look into it more at the backend of 2007-09.
Maybe why the are interested in the "alien metals" see if they can reproduce any that would resistance 30,000 degrees that the spinning mechanism would need to endure.
How they intend to put any form of deliverable cargo into space on of those things is beyond me...
It has a lot of potential believe it or not. I just wish it wasn't wrapped up in TTSA.
What am I to believe the potential of for it not to be affiliated TTSA? Are you asserting “warp drive” propulsion has shown potential, even promising breakthrough-type-past-the-heliosphere-in-jiffy tech?
I can’t say for certain that there are forum members who “know where the goods are” unequivocally, but the aviation forum has some astute posters and a certain ‘FSME’ has said the following w.r.t. military versus civilian ‘breakthrough’ tech: Technology Gap in Civilian and Military Endeavors
ETA: TL;DR concerning linked post: there’s nothing in the US (and by default the world) military inventory that is remotely close to warp
Drive/FTL/anti-gravity propulsion; the military is 8-10 years ahead in some areas, 8-10 years behind the civilian world in other areas. Warp
Drive is laughable...there are secrets, but they are far removed from relativistic, interstellar travel. Just read the quote from Kiku (sp?) on this thread’s first page...
