Has anyone read about these engines? I saw it in the aurora project page a while back, but in Popular Science magazine, there is a huge article on
what pratt Whitney and GE are doing to make this technology more attainable. Really interesting way of making power, the theoretical limits are
These engines have nothing to do with nuclear fuel or nuclear explosions. They run on the same fuel as current turbine engines, but have exponentally
greater thrust and use less fuel due to an extremely effiecent design. The wave concept comes in that the engines currently fire at almost 80 times
per second, with results expected within 2 years of being at a few hundred times per second. I will try to find the article if they put it online and
post a link.
The first thing that pops into my mind when I look at a diagram of one is an internal combustion engine without a piston.
Makes something like the amount of power that a rocket makes,but much faster explosion velocity out of the nozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzle.
