"Tractor Beam" Technology Developed for Space Debris




A tractor beam designed by a Japanese Space-flight engineer by the name of John Sinko coming from Nagoya University may be the answer to the ever growing problem of space debris in orbit around Earth. The growing problem of derelict satellites, used up rockets, and other pieces of spacecraft in the orbit around Earth is growing as space travel and communication through satellites becomes more common. And the system is simpler than originally thought possible for a "tractor beam" using lasers.


I think if we can get this off the ground and is useable it will further increase our space capabilities. Very Interesting stuff.

So far space junk has not been a problem and seems to avoid
most operations.

"Tractor Beam" is obviously from Tesla ship operations that no
one knows how to operate.

The so called lifting up of cows or more notable objects like
Travis Walton or dirt in Rex Heflin photos or tales of water
being lifted up is due to the overhead suspension waves
that continue through the bottom of the craft.

Apparently this works when one operational ship will rescue
from overhead if another gets out of 'tune'.

Due to lack of the supposed "Tractor Technology" lasers must
be used but doubt this project will be made and just waste
Illuminati money to avoid revealing true ether pressure technology.

The basic principles of the machine are quite fascinating, even if it doesnt get made it is still remarkable.

It doesn't seem that great (from the OP article):


Unfortunately, the difficulty of this system is that it will require some precision to actually attach the fuel canisters to the debris and calibrate the mirrors. But seeing that this system is newly developed, it may in time turn out to be far easier with a few more developments in technology and the growing problem of orbital space debris may soon be solved long before it becomes a serious threat to global communication.


This is not much of an advancement (maybe not any?) over just attaching a rocket motor to the debris, except it might be a little cheaper to just attach the fuel canister instead of a rocket motor, but not much. Most of the cost is in the launch and getting to the object and attaching whatever you want to attach to propel it.

I hope they can develop a real tractor beam where you don't have to go and attach something to the object to tractor it. They probably will someday, but this ain't it.

I actually watched a program on the discovery channel about this and it expalined it in alot better detail than the op and the way the narrator explained the way it worked i was just astonished.

Most government jobs are made to keep the government going.
The science stuff is to satisfy the people.
So government first.
So terror protection is first.
There is also more of a power return in cheap small arms and
explosives for the terrorists.
They do not group to become easy targets but send back fools to
set off bombs and pay for the materials while they stay far away
like Hitler.

The 911 aftermath went after the terrorists.
Some think 911 itself was critical itself to the governments survival
and thus the conspiracy theories.

Science is controlled by the government and will keep the best
for itself and control the internet or computing or anything else.
Gov. Brown controlled our car emissions with his patent on
catylitic gas converter by passing the California clean air act
and became rich but didn't get his singer.

The ether science of Tesla and ages past is being held by the
governments of the world. The science exists as proof by at
least a few examples and many more that Tesla discovered.
As critical as making war is the science withheld and why making
false claims of projects is a way of life. And thus the Tesla
conspiracy.

At least one engineer way more capable than the rest went into
insurance after every program he was on got canceled at some point.
Unless you have the highest of critical position there is no position of advantage.

Is space debris critical.
What made space critical in the first place.

ED: "Tractor Beam" means lifting or moving an object.
That is done with pressure waves in the ether.
Even at 60cps you get a hum as an interaction.
I don't get the connection to laser as a cannon to explode
attached explosives.

Someone's thinking. And they have to with all the crap flying around up there. I put a thread up a week or so ago about a British plan to use expanding screens to try and gather up the stuff.

I don't think there is one easy answer. How about putting an extra jet pack on it so when the craft/item dies, the jet pack activates it and send it towards the Sun.

Anyway, nice find. F& S

I think it's really that simple, except the jet pack (or thruster) would need a lot of fuel to send it to the sun, so it would probably just be activated to send it into the Pacific ocean. But it makes a lot more sense to attach something to it at initial launch instead of trying to go attach something to it later.

And we probably need a ban on satellite destruction tests given the horrible amount of debris those tests create.

@True-seer, I wish I could see that Discovery channel program because the way that article explained it, it's not very impressive. Then again, these writers are usually not scientists so perhaps they just didn't explain it very well.

I'm trying to remember the program name but i didnt take much notice so i'm going thru youtube videos looking for the footage lol.

Forget using it on junk. It would make the best rocket engine I have heard of. Imagine, the power could be applied from earth by laser, eliminating the need to carry fuel.
