Gravity Pulse Propulsion, or "Gravitic Pulse Drive" (GPD)
(Please be kind, I have ZERO scientific training or background, what I suggest seems to be possible to me, but may be simple fantasy.)
Imagine if we could create short pulses or bursts of gravity, either pushing away from, or pulling towards objects subject to the laws of gravity?
Well, space is just jam packed with objects with gravitic forces to pull from. Why not harness the massive abundance of gravitic influence in
If we could create a drive that could produce short and variable pulses of electro magnetic energy to either attract or repel gravity fields from
celestial objects, we could have a propulsion system that would require no fuel other than stored electricity. And that could be gathered using
solar, nuclear, etc methods.
I imagine a spacecraft using this drive. It would measure all the surrounding gravity influences affecting the ship and their intensities and
directions 1000’s of times per second. Then depending on where the ship is being directed to travel, it would pulse the appropriate amount of
gravity to either pull or push it closer to its destination.
Picture Tarzan swinging through the vines, always looking ahead to anticipate which vine will best get him to his destination, but no single vine
leading exactly in the right direction.. Or like a sail boat tacking up wind, at moments heading in the wrong direction, but placing the boat in ever
better positions to arrive at its goal using what ever the wind decides to do.
And with no resistances affecting the craft, speed is theoretically unlimited, the longer the trip, the higher the speeds that could be attained.
Actually, depending on the strength of the bodies of gravity near the craft, its acceleration (or deceleration) could be mighty impressive.
I also imagine this technology being applied to conventional terrestrial aircraft as well.
Anyways, that’s my idea and I am sticking with it…
