I'd S & F, but I'm new ... and ... anyway the topic...
I'd be really annoyed if the human race at some point didn't take leaving earth as a serious possibility.
We have moved in all the right directions, if we had transferred the money from war into space exploration, we'd already be sipping Jimmy Cans on the
But alas, we'd rather blow each other to smithereens and stand back when nothings left, just to say... "I'm the last man standing, and I've got
about 6 minutes to live . . "
Anyway.. I've contemplated this at times, ... this would be my plan..
We need people to have the knowledge of NASA and all the other ROCKET building companies, all the TOP SECRET fuel information, the stuff we're never
If people could access the same info as any of the Space Programs, private and government, then Joe Civilian could be helping better the program.
If people started to get a genuine understanding of the hurdles we face leaving the planet then more minds would be working on a way to "jump" these
So we take small community groups and start our own testing, start small, get more an more people involved.
the major limiting constraint is BUDGET, space programs are not "Commercially valuable" YET. But if you scale the tests down, say, don't send a
400ton ship into space, send a 4kg RC into space, with payload delivery and replicate the science at scale.
This will not be as accurate as doing it FULL SCALE, but hell it's gotta lead somewhere.
Then, what you do, is just slowly move the goalposts. So a Program may run like this.
1. Form Group of Like minds
3. Choose a Craft
4. Modify Craft for Space Flight
5. Organize a Network of Amateur Radio Enthusiast to assist in global tracking.
6. Initiate Ground Testing
7. Stratospheric Test
8. Orbital Test and Track
9. Place RC Vehicle in Stable Orbit Around Earth.
This is by no means a conclusive list, as there is much much detail in every step.
Now, the next biggest hurdle, will be... The guys that have the brains saying the guys that don't have the brains can't do it... Well.. Come join us
and help.. then we can do anything.. . . .
It's not bloody rocket science after all.... well... maybe it is... but who said you had to be a rocket scientist to shoot things into space..
hehe... Anyway.. that's my simple plan... I can elaborate in my meat and potato's kind a way if anyone's interested.
